My new hero

We're great friends with Jim and Kathy Covaleski.  Jim decided to get in serious shape this year.  He's dropped a bunch of weight and done a lot of running, biking and swimming. I didn't have a photo of "new Jim", but here is one of Jim and Kathy at Mirror Lake from a few years ago.

Jim competed in his first triathlon this weekend.  Sort of ironic that even though he lives in Alexandria VA, the triathlon was in Raleigh, about 5 miles from our old house.  How did Jim do?  He won his age group!  By almost 10 minutes!  That would be a lot for any triathlon, but this was a sprint tri, with a 250 yard swim, 10 mile bike and 3.1 mile run.  You can find the results here.

How awesome is that?  Go Jim!

Jim and I are supposed to go for a 10 mile run together when we got to DC in October.  I guess I better get out and do more training.
