>Hy Vee Triathlon was a blast. The people were fantastic. The races were exciting. The expo was huge. The whole event was over the top. We got a tour of the transition area and grandstands the night before the race.
That is another big screen and a shaded area with chairs for people to watch the race. There were a bunch of luxury cars sporadically parked along the course as well. It was a great reason to go to Des Moines. Actually, I have no idea why anyone would go there if it weren’t for this race. Oh yeah and we found the best grocery store, Hy-Vee!
Now we are back in Colorado. Another 10 hour day of driving through Nebraska. There was no reason to stop at any of the towns there either. I went for a slow 40 mile ride this morning and it was fantastic. The goal for the next two weeks is to stay busy. With so many fun outdoor things to do here, I really want to make the most of our time available. Farmers markets, swim, bike, run, coffee shops, hiking, climbing, you name it, I want to do it! Off to the pool now.
