2 Things Challenge - Saturday/Hard

It has been a long while since I have participated in the weekly photo challenge over at 2 Things Challenge.  I am finally getting back to messing with my camera, so it was nice to get out this weekend with a goal in mind.   The two topics for this week was Saturday/Hard.

The City of Blaine Parks & Recreation Department sponsored a triathlon on Saturday, May 19th, at Lakeside Commons Park.  The event consisted of a 1/3 of a mile swim, 16.7 mile bike ride, and finally a 3.5 mile run.  Needless to say, an event of this magnitude is Hard on a body.  It is made even harder by the fact that the winner did it in 73 minutes.  Wow!  These athletes are amazing.
