Desert Triathlon

April 20, 2008


The race is at Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta, California,
in the Palm Springs area. It's one of the most beautiful
tri venues in the world.


Carlos Orozco: Married, with a kid of his own, and still part of the team.


Super-volunteer Craig Huendorf trying to keep the gear working.


Team member Marvin is a great bike mechanic in his own right.
(He fell asleep under a lawn mower the night before.)


Marlene and Ariceli



Josh showing off the hat he borrowed...


...from Cesar, who needs it more.


The Coach with Ironman legend Bill Bell and race announcer (and IM-Arizona
finisher) Alan Woodruff.

Marlene heads out of T1.




Reasonable sentiment, but not a very aerodynamic way to express it



Well, no more photos. A little medical emergency with one of the kids 
(turned out just fine) took your humble shutterbug away from the rest of the race.

But trust me:

A splendid time was had by all!
