Iron-Man-Dan-O

 Best of luck today
to
our Son-In-Law
Dano
as he
participates in the
Ironman (!)
Competition
in Palm Springs, California

Dano will compete in the Half Ironman
which is a series of
middle-distance Triathalon Races = 70.3 miles.
He will
Swim 1.2 Miles
Bike 56 Miles
and then
Run 13.1 Miles
!!!
His goal is to finish in under 6 hours.
o.h.m.y.
How proud we are of him for his
determination
commitment
training
discipline
and
endurance
gives me goosebumps just to think about it

Our cheering will take place from Arizona
while we participate in our own 
semi-triathalon
for a few days
as we
run
chase
and 
corral
these 3 beautiful grandbabies
Little heart stealers :)
