Project 365/207 Mackinaw Triathlon

Our Sunday plans were to travel to Mackinaw City and watch 2 of Hubby's friends compete in their first triathlon! We got up about 4 am and travel up there with the girls, only Syd slept on the way up like we planned but all were in great spirits while we watched. It was misting most all morning, great for the athletes only slightly annoying for the spectators. The Mackinaw Multi-sport Mix consisted of an 800 meter swim in cold Lake Michigan, 18 miles on the bike and lastly a 5k. Zach finished in 1:39:17 and 42 overall, Mat finished in 2:02:29 and 115 overall and both finished in the top ten in their age bracket. Great job guys. Zach wants to train for a marathon next year, I think he will try and urge Hubby to partake in it with him. Maybe a 1/2 marathon first would be easier.
