Adam is an amazing swimmer. He used to suck. I mean, he could get across the pool and everything. But he sucked. Now he is SO GOOD! He has worked quite hard to become so. The swim was done in waves. Adam was in the 3rd wave...so he started after 42 people. He finished 10th...passing many who started 1 or 2 minutes before he did. What a champ. The top right pic has a sign that says, "no swimming in the marina" haha!
AK only had the chance to ride his bike twice before this race (not twice ever, just twice this year). The weather in EM didn't really allow much more. He still did an awesome job though.
The run is probably where Adam made the most improvement from his last triathlon. He did a great job and passed some more people. After the race they announced the winners for gender and age group and awarded prizes. Adam took third in his age group! He sure is a champ!
