St. George Half IRONMAN 20

In the middle of May Ryan, Jeff, Greg, Sean, Whitney, and our Dad competed in the St. George Half IRONMAN. This was a huge accomplishment! Back last year in July when our Dad was diagnosed with cancer and he woke up in the hospital room, we made it our mission to help our Dad to be able to compete in the St. George Half IRONMAN. He had already paid his $500 to compete and was registered along with Ryan and Jeff. Greg, Sean, and Whitney decided they wanted in on it as well. It was AMAZING.

As an cheerleader... {this is Lindsey} it was one of the neatest experiences I have had. It was so fun to cheer our guts out, and even funner to see people who recognized or who have "followed" our Dad. Countless athletes saw our shirts or our signs and would yell from the course... "go IRONDEAN"... it was amazing! People we didn't even know. It was so cool.

And then to see all the boys and Whitney cheer for our Dad and finish. It was amazing. Such a neat awesome experience. We were so proud of our Dad for competing and finishing. I am so glad I was able to be there and be a part of it. Our Dad truly is amazing.

SIDENOTE::: Hopefully we can get some of the awesome pictures that we took posted, but for now my phone picture's will have to do.
