I woke up bright and early today. I only live about 6 miles from the Aurora Reservoir. Today was the day that the Harvest Moon was to take place. I knew of someone in my Triathlon class who did it last year. This year I knew that Tea was doing the race. I missed her at Danskin because there were too many people there. This one was a smaller race and I was determined to see her race.
I also knew that Duane and Tea's Sherpa (Mike) would be there. I arrived about 6:30-6:45 with plenty of time. I was looking all over for Tea, but she was not in sight. The last 5-10 minutes before the race started, I saw her!!! Yes. I am so glad that I did. I gave her a big hug and wished her well. I timed her swim so she would know how she was doing overall.
Fantastic swim!! 44 minutes. That is way awesome! Mike and I went to transition area to give Tea some encouragement. I am glad that she was still there! Shortly after she was off. Mike and I talked about triathlon stuff. Bike, wheels, equipment, Ironman Coeur d'Alene and more. It was awesome! I cheering on several other triathletes that were leaving the transition area. I finally went down to the swim area. I watched the last two swimmers come in. That was my cue to adventure back home.
I sure was sad that I had to leave. Nicole and I did some volunteer work with my church. We went and delivered Sunday lunches to the Senior Center and Olin Apts in downtown Denver. That was such a great experience. It was a little stressful, but we survived.
