This is my favorite sequence of photos I took on Sunday. In looking back at the various photos, all my favorites are those of triathletes when they were with or saw their friends and families. I liked this series so much (particularly the third) that I decided to use the Ironman website to see if I could find the triathlete. Between the bib list and google and linkedin, I was able to find the Dad and send him the photos. He was very happy to have them. He wrote me not one, but two emails thanking me.
These are PRICELESS !
Thanks so much for sharing ! This really makes my day.
Thanks so much for the photos. I posted the pic of my daughter and I
as my new cover photo on Facebook and it was reposted by my sister.
The photo has received over 170 likes and over 40 comments....this is
very surprising as I only have 230ish FB friends. I knew immediately
it was a fantastic photo and just wanted to say Thanks again.
Needless to say I was very happy I decided to reach out to him.
A fantastic day for the 70.3 Ironman Raleigh event today. I was able to catch the leaders finishing the bike and a lot of the run in downtown Raleigh. Amazing to watch world class athletes and the weekend warriors. This is the men's overall winner, Matt Chrabot (who was in 2nd place by just a few seconds here as he finished the bike portion).
We found some other walkers/runners doing the same thing. Loved the brightly colored vest against the white snow.
Out of the neighborhood and cutting through the woods to Lake Lynn Greenway
A really grey, moody, Lake Lynn -- all the birds were hiding elsewhere
Heading back home to start the work day
As it turned out, it was little C's good friend that was selected. He made his free throw on the 2nd shot....took a bit longer to make the 3....and then hit the half-court shot on the first attempt. Bedlam at the gymnasium!
I had been asked to take some photos of the sponsors and the event, but I managed to 'document' the events as they unfolded. I had to dodge the Chick-fil-A sponsor along with the Cow, but I think these photos tell the story anyway.
