Many successes this weekend!
Dean and Beth got married! Congratulations Dean and Beth, you guys rock and thanks so much for including me on the big day! I can't believe how well you pulled off a 300+ person wedding. Everything and everyone looked so fabulous and I know all of the friends in our circle had a most excellent time!

Yes, it was definitely Dean!The hotties were out in full force!All the good photos from the reception are on Jess' camera except this one:Tracy makes the greatest milkshakes. If you visit her at Barriques make sure to get one Mark Larson style (except for Riz as the Riz wouldn't like it.) The wedding was a blast (despite all the photos I got to watch) and everything went pretty smoothly. The reception was a most excellent party and if I can I'll post some other entertaining pictures.

The next morning we went out to the Ironman to watch Wolfgram. We saw him once on the bike. Actually he saw us I think as he kind of blended in. So no good photos exist of this event. I did go down to the run to provide some support on the backside of the course. Saw him at Camp Randall:

Then I stalked him for almost 2 miles and we had some conversation. He looked really strong and had a most excellent time. I've never seen anyone train as hard for anything as he did for this so I am really proud of him. Yeah I've made fun of him alot as he is a full-blown tri-geek now but you can't dig on his determination and his result. Congrats! Even the mighty Wolfgram had to refuel(I can't believe he didn't dump the water on the girl in the Randy Moss jersey.)

Then I rode back home and figured the 100ft climb I rode was photoworthy.

Happy Monday!


  • I should start by thanking you for encouraging me to start a blog about my IM journey. It's all still fresh in my mind, but I think I'll really appreciate having it all documented later on when it's more of a memory than a current event.

    And thanks for cheering me on during the race. It means a lot to me that you came out and supported me, and it really helped to have a distraction from the pain/fatigue - even if it was only for a mile or two. Plus, the reminder to keep taking in calories was huge - you may have saved my race because at that point I didn't want to eat or drink anything. Thanks.
