Go D Go!

I had to fight off the little guy for honors on this one...:) 
Dustin traveled to Oregon last weekend for the USAT National Triathlon Championship.  It was quite an honor to qualify for this as only the top 10% of previous sanctioned race finishers get in.  After weeks of chronic IT Band issues in his right leg and a cortisone shot that was starting to wear off, D had high hopes of health above all else.  Surprise, surprise though, D was able to pull off way more than just racing with pain.  Thanks to all of you who prayed, his leg held up and he completed the race in PR (personal record) fashion with a time of 2 hours, 09 minutes and 54 seconds, and finished top 25 in his age group.  He bettered his best time by over 9 minutes.  Yea D!  The greatest thing for him was having his dad, Roger, there supporting him and experiencing the awesome day.  We're so proud of you D!
