Mark has been taking classes for photography and is starting to grow his portfolio. His passion subjects are currently wildlife, natures and sports. Recently, he got a great opportunity to work alongside our friend Nick who is also a professional photographer in Hammond, Illinois, taking photos of the athletes participating in Leon's Triathlon.
So we originally signed up for the Maple Grove Sprint Triathlon figuring putting the $$ down would make us get off our asses. Well then we found out we screwed up because we have to work at a race that day. Crap...... At least we will get the shirts ;)

Last week, Kris and I both received and email from MN Masters Swimming indicating that Chisago Triathlon still needed volunteers and they were offering a free entry into the 2015 Triathlon in exchange for volunteering. We both have a participated in the race before, most notably when in 2009 I blew up on the run after turning myself inside out trying catch up with Kris on the bike. And then in 2010 we were signed up for the Sprint and never made it because of our epic bike ride late into the event and were too tired to get up the next day. So the idea of getting a free entry to try again had some appeal. Unfortunately, it meant getting up at 3:45am to get ready and drive to Chisago.
