Here I am, getting out of the water on my way to the bike.Here are Scott and Sara, post race:I'd like to take the opportunity to congratulate my entire family as well- both of my parents participated in 2 separate relays, along with my husband and his dad, my older brother, and my Aunt. My little brother and his girlfriend did the full triathlon with me (and probably both placed in their age groups)! Yeah us!

I was more and more amazed as I watched this completely tame deer come closer and closer, while my boys inched in her direction. She had no fear of them, or me, when she heard me clicking picture after picture of her- and looked directly at me for two of these.
And for the glorifying moment, she nuzzles their fingers hoping for a morsel of food. They had nothing to offer her (not sure they even knew she wanted food from them), so she quickly wandered off after that. I must not be a very cautious mother, because it never entered my head that she had rabies or other strange wild diseases, nor did she seem like she would bite or hoof them. I think I was almost as excited as they were, and just let it happen. I'm glad I did, 'cause I think I can be a bit over protective sometimes, and I would have regretted it later had I interfered with this sweet moment. I hope they'll always remember it- almost 5, so they might.
