Jason's First Sprint Triathlon... and He is Still Alive :-)

Can I just say that I am so proud of my husband!  He decided to participate in a sprint triathlon a couple of weeks ago, and with only two weeks of training he completed a 400 yd swim, 13.6 mile bike ride, and then a 5K run!  We woke up this morning at 4:00am to head down to Cordele, GA for the race.  I felt like I was just doing good to wake up that early... I can't even imagine doing something active after waking up at 4:00am.  Did I mention that we woke up at 4:00am?!?  We rode down to South Georgia with Jenn and Andy, they were the ones who encouraged Jason to sign up for the race.  It was also Jenn's first sprint triathlon, and I am also so so so excited for her for finishing the race!!!  And, the cutest part was that Andy treaded in the water during the swim for about six minutes waiting on Jenn's wave of racers to start.  He stayed right by her side the entire race to encourage her to never stop... she didn't even walk during the 5K... she ran the entire leg of the race.
