Matt's Olympic Triathalon in Austin, TX

We went out to dinner the night before the race so Matt could "carb-load" and then attempted to see the Bats that live under the Congress Street Bridge. We waited for over an hour to see them come out, and they never did. We could hear them, and smell them, and we did see maybe 5 of them; but from what we heard, there are supposed to be up to 1 million of them that come out at dusk to eat. They even had a bat festival going on that night, and no one got to see them! We were so disappointed.

Matt with the kids right before his 7:10am start time.

Coming out of the water and headed toward the bike portion.

Matt just finished his second triathlon....This one was an "Olympic Distance" where he had complete a 1500 meter open water swim, bike 40 kilometers (25 miles) an run a 10k (6.2 miles).

He finished in a tad under 3 hours (2:53) and was pleased with the time for his first race...
