We did it!!

 And lived to blog about it.  The start of our extended wedding vacation began with a trip up to Benton Harbor, Michigan for the Steelhead Ironman 70.3 triathlon race.

The race started with a great point to point swim along the Michigan Lake shoreline.  Having never seen Lake Michigan before, I would have sworn we were entering the Pacific Ocean.  After the swim transition we headed through the neighboring counties for our bike course.  The bike was great until about mile marker 35 when we had to contend with a 15 mile per hour head wind all the way home.  The race ended with a 2 loop run through the Whirlpool headquarters.

The weather was great all day long until around 3 when the rain came in.  Two members from our race crew got caught out on the course in the rain……guess they will learn to be faster next time.

Anyway, here are some pictures from the race.  Songkhla’s sister isn’t the best race photographer so these are the best we could find from the bunch.
