A teammate rides to her first triathlon win

Champion

I spent most of the morning shooting my teammates at the East Cooper Coastal Triathlon.  I love being on this side of the race and experiencing it through other’s performances.  While there were some good races out there, including my teammate and nemesis Adam, today I had the great fortune of watching my teammate Siobhan get her first triathlon win!  She is a truly amazing athlete and is really coming into her own in the sport.  Not only is she good, but she’s tough as nails as well, having finished Ironman C’oeur d’Alene after breaking her collarbone early on the bike.  And this season she’s taking on coaching and creating a local group for “Moms Who Tri”.   Congrats Siobhan!  Well done.

First frame from a new lens...my son on his bike.

MotoX Ben

This was the first frame with my new 80-200 f/2.8 L zoom.  I remember now why I love this lens so much.  This is my second copy, which I got for a song on eBay.  I sold the original one I had years ago to help finance a triathlon bike project.  I guess it is fitting that I sacrificed one of my sets of carbon fiber race wheels in order to get another of these lenses.  They call this Canon lens the “Magic Drainpipe” and for good reason.  Images are simply sharp, contrasty, and have a certain pop to them that is hard to find even in the current crop of 70-200 f/2.8 L IS lenses.  You’ll be seeing a lot more of this lens in the coming months.

Adam at the re-inaugural Wednesday night TT

Forgiven

Tonight was the re-inauguration of the Charleston area Wednesday night time trial series.  When I first came to Charleston years ago this was a staple for the area cyclists and triathletes to keep tabs on their fitness over the year.  Sometime after I left it fell out of practice.  This year, a good friend Adam, who is pictured above, has taken on the task of bringing the series back to life.

I had plans of capturing some riders in their racing, but with the awful weather and this being the first race, only four of us showed up.  So I grabbed a quick shot of Adam here before we set off for 10 miles of time trial pain.  I think I can forgive him for beating me so badly tonight, especially since I have many opportunities left to even the score.  I’m not so sure we can forgive the UNC kit, though.

Thanks, Adam for bringing these back from the dead, and playing good sport for my daily photograph.  Next month we’ll remember the beer cooler for post-race cool down!
