The Bro: CapTexTri

My brother in the CapTexTri

My brother keeps impressing me with all of his accomplishments this year. I think it was just last year that he couldn't even run a mile, and here he is doing his first Triathlon - the Olympic distance CapTexTri. He's already completed some 5Ks, 10Ks, a half marathon, and will run a full marathon this year! I'm pretty sure an Ironman is in the future.

If his races weren't so early in the morning, I would test my new 70-300mm lens on him, but by the time he comes home from the race, I have just woken up. I'm a horrible sister. I know.

Moreover, I just wanted to give him a little shout out because I'm so proud of him!

Oh, and if you missed my brother's pictures from the Cap10K, he dressed as a banana, and still ran a good time (53:44). It was funny walking with him to get food and drinks after the race, a couple people would say something along the lines of "Hey Banana Man! You passed me during the race and I was like, 'Aww man, I got passed by a Banana!'" Too funny.

p.s. When we get unpacked, I'll have to show you a picture of his room. He's got snowboarding/biking/running/swimming equipment everywhere. It looks like a sports shop. And he's picking up windsurfing this year, too. More props for me to use for product photography. Yeah...always thinkin' business...

  1. That's awesome! Maybe one day he'll start traveling different places for races. A friend and I have that on our books to I hear a nationwide team being created? JK :)
