San Luis Obispo

Go Uncle Phil!
Saturday morning, we grabbed coffees and hiked down to watch Phil compete in the SLO Olympic distance triathlon. We are all very proud of him for finishing, especially after having the flu just a few days before the event! It was neat to actually see, in person, what goes on during a triathlon... and now I know FOR SURE that I will never compete in one! I really don't know how anybody can swim for 30 or more minutes in freezing cold (gross) water, then run on hard gravel with no shoes.. then bike for like 2 hours and THEN run for an hour or more?! It's all just crazy to me... and what's even more crazy is that these people then go on to compete in even longer triathlons! Maybe I'm just lazy...
