D and I participated in a great Kwaj tradition this weekend, the RustMan.  It's an annual triathlon run by the running club here.  Participants swim 1K, bike 42K, and run 10K.  D and I have wanted to do it as a team since we moved down here and this year, we were finally able to.  D's goal was to finish in less than three hours and we made it: 2:42:35!  D did the swim and and the run and I did the bike portion in the middle.  I hadn't had as much time to train as I would have liked but I still managed to cut 5.5 minutes off my time from last year.  I'm regularly proud of the kids but it was really nice to be proud of D and myself for something.   We both did our best and finished well for it.  I hope this is something we can keep doing while we're here.

so tired after!


A beautiful sunset, happy kids on swings, mom high on endorphins and pride: a great end to the day
