More Cowbell!

On Saturday morning, I went to the Woodlands to watch Katherine and Wendy run in the triathlon there.
It was a beautiful morning at a beautiful location!
I was up on a bridge overlooking the start of the race - the 500m swim. They had several different heats leaving about 4 minutes apart.
Here's Wendy just coming out of the water.

Katherine was just a minute or two behind her.
I also got her just starting the biking leg. 13 miles, I believe!
Here's Katherine just starting the 5k after she finished the bike ride.
Wendy was right behind her. She's high fiving Kim and Becca.
Here's Katherine super close to the finish!
Here she is crossing the finish line. Her time was 1h 25 m! Way to go!
Here's Wendy close to the finish. . .
. . . and crossing the line at 1 h 36 m. Awesome!
I was excited to run into Steve and Lindsay Chesser. Lindsay ran the triathlon and did a great job!
The proud finishers! Way to go, girls!
I was amazed how much writing they put on people. They put the bib number on the arm and leg, and the person's age on the back of their leg. Katherine doesn't even turn 31 until October.
Some of her family was there to cheer her on.

You may be wondering about the title of this post. Most of the spectators there seemed to have cowbells and the whole time I was at the race, that's what I heard. It reminded me of this awesome video so I posted it for your viewing pleasure! Don't know why the image is flipped, but it's just as funny!
