IRON GIRL 2012
Bright and early the swimming leg commenced…
Looking for Rita in a Lake of identically dressed women, not so easy but we finally got it! Thanks to Ken’s keen eye.
See on that peninsula between the palm trees? That was Ken trying to keep an eye on Rita.
SO many women. Swimming 1/2 mile!
OPPS there she went. We were cheering so crazily that I completely forgot to take a better picture. Off to the BIKE!
Quick change and here she’s taking her bike down
Walking her bike to the start line (chip marker)
About to hop on
Pretty smooth sailing 14 miles!
Cheering section, Peter Cooke himself!
Done with the bike, starting the 5k!

DONE!!!!!! With her sweet sister! Her card read, “Impressed, but not surprised” cool sentiment and true! Two years after knee replacement… doing this was a huge accomplishment. Doing it at all is a HUGE accomplishment. Congratulations Iron Girl Rita!
Rita and her friend Debbie who also finished!
I did it!!
And then we found a lady bug! What an exciting day!!!!!
Back at home — she was feeling great and even better with her bucket of corona’s and balloons awaiting her! Tom and Vonnie hooked her up.
Proud son, happy Mom.
