Well at the beginning of this year he really dedicated himself to get fit and conquer this goal and today he did!
His goal was to do it in 2 1/2 hrs and he completed it in 2 hrs and 25 minutes so he made it!
I am so proud of him- this is quite a race- a 1/2 mile swim then a 22.8 mile bike ride and then a 5 mile run.
What a great accomplishment!
