Photos by Erica Kotajarvi of the 2009 Ryanman 70.3 Triathlon. The Ryanman is a "fun" half-Ironman distance triathlon the NordicSkiRacer's Ryan Robinson puts on around his Brithday in July. This year, a record number of people finished the entire event: 3! A fourth nearly made it but had to drop out with just a few miles to go - Guess having mono in the weeks leading up to the Ryanman doesn't help with performance.
Six swimmers completed the first 1.2 mile leg, 5 of us finished the 56 mile bike route, 8-9 of us did some or all of the 13.1+ mile run.
The fourth leg - the party - had many, many more participants...
