Near the starting line of the race...this is what 3000+ triathletes plus all of their supporters and a bunch of press looks like along the banks of the Ponchartrain at 7am on a Sunday morning.
We were so suprised and happy to see Paul! He was looking for us and the big sign we made. Carly's carrying it, it's just a big fish with no words, and it worked! He found us right away in the middle of all of the chaos.
The Giant as Aquaman. We were laughing because he said he looks like a porpoise in his wetsuit.
The swim start! Look in the back of the group...see the shirtless guy with both arms up? Okay, that's not Paul. Paul is to the right of Freezing Guy with one arm up. This is one of the groups of 25-29 year old males.
