Yes, I made it!
Karen and me after the race.
Our friend George coming out of the surf in the predawn. Waves don't look too bad here, but once the sun started coming up, the wind picked up and the water got choppier yet with whitecaps--"the seas were angry that day." Had they just been rolling waves, it would have been difficult but fun.
Somehow (all I'm saying is, it wasn't me!) the bike pics, transition pics, and beach pics got deleted, so this is all I have until the official photos become available.
