Pigman Report...

Here I am, Vinnie, your roving reporter! Today I am reporting on a local sprint triathlon called the Pigman. Hmmm... I didn't see any pigs. Anyhow, Auntie Tammy was entered in the Pigman. This means she had to do a 0.5k (543 yards) swim, 25k (15.5 mile) bike ride, and a 5k (3.1 mile) run. Whew... I get tired just thinking about it.

So this is where it all begins. Unfortunately, being a "dog", I am not allowed in the beach area. So, we'll just watch from here.
The competitors have to swim out from the beach around the buoys and back under that big blow up finish. I'll bet I could poke a hole in that big blow up finish thingy!!They are very organized here. They are color coded by their caps when they swim. Auntie Tammy had a black cap - we think she should have had PINK!!! See all the pretty pink caps?

These are the buoys that they have to swim around. See the boats? If my mom did this, she would need one of the boats to rescue her.

There's Tammy - She is doing AWESOME!!! She didn't need a boat.

Here she is again just finishing... Sorry - mom's not so good with the point and shoot! That's Tammy's niece, Daphne, in the background cheering her on. Go Tammy!!!!

Hey Vinnie, you're an awesome reporter. Aunt Tammy looks pretty serious. We could have helped her with that swim.
