Big Big Weekend, Part 1

Part 1
MBM's race! I am so proud of him. Over 402 registered racers, we were turning people away on Friday night at "packet pick -up" MBM handed over over $30,000 to the beneficiaries of the race.

Here are some highlights...

Lined up a half hour before pick up/registration on the corner of JFK & Veterans Way...Smile your in Sea Isle City!!!

MBM and Lt. Bob, an active Army pilot home on R&R from Afghanistan. Completed the race with his dad and returned to "the fight" as he put it, the very next day.

MBM with the mayor addressing the racers!

Sixty retired and active military heading into the ocean.

First timers...Mimi (aka my 52 year old MIL), Emily, Reenie, Jackie! So many of our friends and family trained to do this race, most of which have never participated in a race of any sort let alone a tri! Those who didn't race volunteered...starting at 5:30 am race day!

US Coast Guard fly by...arranged by my childhood next door neighbor, who is station in Atlantic City.

Even Batman and Robin showed up to show their support!

Team Semper Fi...amazing!

Part 2...tomorrow!
