First, Saturday I'm doing a relay race for the first time on Saturday. Ironman training calls for about a 5 hour bike ride and 1 hour runoff, so I'm only swimming for the race. My buddies Brian and Randy are doing the bike and run, respectively. It's an oly race, and we've got a bet going (and lots of nice trash talking) with three other local triathlon buddies. Sunday I've got a long run, then we're all going out for a few drinks with the losing team picking up the tab. I like our chances, but some of these guys are pretty quick. Whatever happens it should be a good time and we'll get some fun stories. Nothing beats racing with friends!
Second is a photo dump. Last weekend after all the workouts were done we took the kids to Umstead for a hike. The river was really high thanks to lots of rain the day before, so it made for some cool shots. But first......
|That is a serious meatball sub that Kelley made for dinner the first Saturday of College Football. I never take pictures of food, it was that good.|
|These are all of the hot peppers I have left after eating as many as I could this year. TONS! Must make hot sauce. It was my labor day project that never happened. They are all amazing little gems, though.|

|What happens when you put an Evil Genius near water? Nothing. She was too scared to get very close.|
|My biggest tree hugger|

|Our kids can find a dance floor anywhere|
|I got surprised - notice all that sweat! It got hot out there.|
