After the Trinity race, her biggest concern was that she missed getting pictures of me on the bike and a finish line picture showing the clock. The truth is that she got some amazing pictures, capturing the feeling of transitions and the focus being put into the race. Especially in this first race, those pictures say more than the finish time.
The really nice thing about well organized races is that there are others on the race course taking pictures. And, in this case, they captured some of those shots Mrs. Pol was unable to get. Though I believe hers were still superior, despite the gap in equipment, here are a couple shots taken by race photographers.

In case it isn't said enough, thank you, Mrs. Pol, for all the support in these races. From event planner to child caregiver to photographer to occassional SAG wagon (when the bike or the legs give out), none of these events would be possible without your help. And even with all the challenges, your pictures are still the best of the bunch.
