Ironman last week

Back lit dirt during sunset created this saturated yellow scene.

These athletes have already swam 2.4 miles, biked 112 miles now they have
a 26.2 mile run ahead of them. It is a long grueling day for most of these athletes. Some won't finish until midnight.

A female Pro Imke Schiersh from Frankfurt, Germany passes by.
She finished in 9:53 for 9th place women pro division.

My wife Lorie passes by on her second loop of
the 26.2 mile run cource

Runner runs into shaft of light.

Lorie Armstrong looks good on the third loop of the bike course.

Men professional triathletes finish the swim and run to the transition to bike.

Wetsuit strippers peel wetsuits off swimmers as they exit the water.

2,300 athletes begin the day with a deep water standing start.

I really do love what you are doing. I feel calmer when I look at these. It is exactly what you say it is.

I agree with Ashley and the runner going through the shaft of light is spectacular.
