We were all a little nervous about actually finishing- none of us have a lot (or any) experience with these kind of races- but I'm happy to say we all crossed the finish line AND had times that we were impressed with. Combined with gorgeous weather and an afterparty at Ned Devine's with Shipyard Brewing Company (we earned those beers!), I really couldn't have asked for a better birthday celebration. We're already looking forward to next year!
Thanks to SurThrival for the action shots throughout the race and getting this one with me and my brother!
