Cookies for Santa

More pictures tomorrow, it's been a fine Christmas Eve, with shopping and lunch, and dinner with the family. We are looking forward to a wonderful Christmas day. As for tonight, it's now almost midnight, we're all warm and snug and hoping tired boys who are staying up late watching Christmas Vacation will sleep late.

"Ya Gotta Park for This, It's Going to be Epic!"

(Title quote: Seth Haws)
Kyle and I drove up to the church to pick up Brad, Seth and Cole. The boys were in the parking lot racing their soap box cars they've been working on the past few weeks.
Kyle had to try it out too.

It's official--well almost!

Kevin got a call today from the director of his program officially inviting him to start the program in January. He's in! Congrats Kev. Unofficially...he still needs to submit one more letter of recommendation, his U of R professor must have wrote a great letter for him because they accepted him without the other letter.

Before--is that fear in his eyes?
After--11 hours 48 minutes later--Kevin Wright, you are an Ironman.

Mass swim start, Tempe Town Lake
That's Kev, the first bike

And the bike is done! In the finish chute.
Hi fiveing little brother on the run.

Brian Lehnhof was working the transition tent, we were lucky to get some texts from Brian when he saw Kevin. Thanks for the updates. Kev says he'll write a race report after he recovers. He made it look easy.

Breakfast in Bed

Tour de Tucscon began this morning with breakfast in bed for Kyle and Brad.
No, they really didn't sleep at the start line, however to line up in the Gold section you had to be there very early. We got up at 3:30 am and they staked out their piece of asphalt.

Waiting, waiting for the start, a few minutes before 7:00 am they moved all the gold riders up to the back of the platinum section, to line up platinum you have to be a Cat 1 or 2 or have ridden Tour de Tucson under 5 hours. Next year Kyle will have a platinum pass, and Craig will be lining up for breakfast in bed with Brad.
Kyle is done, we're waiting for Brad to finish.

Brad came around this last corner thinking he still had a mile to go, he was so happy to see the balloons straight ahead, he was done! Way to go boys, you did a great job.
We're in Tempe now, IMAZ for Kev.

Guraranteed Entry

Kev finishing up the half.

We did our second race yesterday, Kev did the Snow Canyon Half Marathon, and I did the 5K.
Kyle helping me finish.
Yeah, two trips to St. George was kinda inconvenient, and I know when October is on fast approach I will wonder what the heck I was thinking!
