Longhorn Half Ironman Pictures

Race Weekend Pictures
The race report is in my update on 10/7.
The buoys for the swim. That little dot in the middle of the picture
right at the horizon is a buoy.
This is the other side of the swim.


The swim exit from the water. I know the picture is dark, but it kind of gives you an idea of the distance from the swim exit to transition. And it's all uphill.

Continuing the swim exit and the entrance into transition.




My bike racked on Saturday. I got lucky and the spot to my left remained empty. Nice!!!




Race day exiting the swim.





Coming out of transition for the bike start.






Clipping in.




Taking off for the 56 mile bike ride.



Out on the run course. Those blue things in my hands are the cold, wet sponges.
They became my friends for the second lap.



Posing for my son. Only he cut my head off, so this is the picture my husband took.




Running it in for the finish.



I'm a Half Ironman Finisher!!




Me with my medal at home after the race. My daughter took this picture.

YOU'RE AWESOME! Great job! Fantastic! Unbelievable! I am meeting friends who are doing the S.F. Nike Women's...but that's nothing compared to a tri! GO GIRL!

WOW Briana! You are one awesome athlete! I read the previous post and it wore me out, the pictures are great. Good luck in SF. Can't wait to hear about it and see pix.

I hope you are all rested and relaxed...although you have a marathon coming up, so dont get to comfy ;)

I want to do the Maui tri...have you thought about doing that? I did the LA Tri a couple of years ago, and would love to train for another.

Keep up the good work, you are making such a valuable impact on the lives of those facing blood cancers.

hugs,
