Ironman pictures

Here are the pictures leading up to Ironman, the day of Ironman and some after it is over. I have not gotten the tattoo yet (will get it in late September after my last triathlon), so pictures will have to wait until then.

Our super support crew: Maggie (Matt's sister) and her boyfriend Brad



Our super support crew: Matt's mom (Jean) and dad (Bill)

Yay, first comment :) NICE PICTURES!! I love the one of you coming into town around the corner on the bike. You're leaning into the turn all Tour de France style... minus the EPO. You captured the entire weekend so well! I love the Mozzy cheeze stix and Harry potter :)

How great to have such a big support group for such a huge event!

You looked so strong throughout the race — way to be an Iron[wo]man and photogenic all at the same time!

Congrats again on such a monumental achievement!

you are too damn cute. I love the bike photos. It is a big reminder of the difficulties you faced and overcame with your fancy wheel on the back and your loaner on the front.
