Chicago Pics

I'm sure that Di's got some good shots coming on her blog, but I found a few that I like. Of course, it's all about me on my blog.




Pre-race: Here's a shot of Tim, the Bigun, Roman and Dr. Dave.







Swim: This is the long leg I was talking about - that's probably me swimming into the boat up there to the left...


and here is a tired-looking Bigun - damn, I look OLD!











Bike: It's all about the bike!








Here's a haggard looking, non face shaven, but great leg-shaven thirsty Bigun...















Run: Yep, I beat her in the shute. I love beating up on women and small children. Woop up an #6 on them.

Post race: Look at all these burned up lobsters!

Brittany, Bigun, Di and Andy:









Mike, Bigun, Di and J-Wimm:








Here's a shot of me holding back Roman after he got sheister'd out of his 1st Place Medal. This guy shouldn't have messed with the Clydesdales!

Sorry I couldn't be there to cheer you on but at least I got to watch you shave your legs before you left - woohoo!!

I rarely shave the mug, but the legs...:)

nice, very nice.
I like the run down the shoot.
I usually let the clydes pass me too when they look like they're going to pass out.

I'll have to check Di's blog now for the rest.

Great pics.

The Clyde said...

Those pics show just pure determination, or pain, either way, good job.

Wish I could have made it to the city to cheer, but I was doing a bike ride instead, maybe next time.

Hey, you really did have your race face on!

Spokane Al said...

Great pictures. I don't think you look old in the pictures, you seem to be just trying to suck in as much oxygen as possible.

Cindy Jo said...

Damn, you are looking good! Triathlon agrees with you!

Who cares about shaving the face? Its all about the legs, baby!

Tri-Dummy said...

So what happened with Roman...did they figure out everything?

Your bike is looking pimped out with the deep dish front/disk rear setup. You need to get a trisuit, so you match.

I am looking at you next to all your friends. Either you keep small company or you really are a Bigun. Glad you had a fun race!

tri-dogmom said...

Congrats. THOSE ARE GREAT PICS!!!!!

tri-mama said...

Nice Pics- now I think I could pick you and Di out in a tri crowd- and a PR-the midwest will do that for you :-) way to go podium guy.

Iron Eric said...

AWESOME!! Your pics makes me a little jealous because I have heard so many great things about the Chicago Triathlon.

Swim, Bike, Run, YEAh, SO much fun...Can't get that song out of my head...arg.

I'm thinking that if I was cornered by the Bigun and Roman, I would give you all the medals and the prize money.

Fe-lady said...

You used "Slim Picken's" plan huh?
Great photos- you all look great!

Wow, that Di is hot! I hear that she makes a great pineapple cheddar dish.
