Kiley's time was 16.2 minutes. Two laps in the city pool, 1 mile bike ride, 1/2 mile run. Kiley placed 11th out of 41 in her age division. Total kids participating were 76.

Kiley received a phone call Sunday from a friend asking if she wanted to do the kid triathlon with her this week. The friend would swim, another friend would bike and Kiley was going to run. She was very excited about the whole thing. Then two days ago she found out that there were no teams. Each kid needed to swim, bike and run. Now she wasn't so sure. Bruce and I encouraged her and here are the results of this mornings triathlon. We don't have her time yet. That will be posted later in the day. It was very exciting to watch from the sidelines.
Kiley wore a jacket at first. She was cold and very concerned about getting in the pool

As most of you know I had Knee Surgery on the 23rd. The Dr. cut out two sections of the meniscus, repaired a ligament and cut a muscle to re-align my kneecap. We will know the finally outcome in 6-8 weeks. I seem to be able to do a little bit more each day. However, I usually pay for it late at night. I will be anxious to see the Dr. again on August 5th. Bruce, Kiley and many friends have been life savors for me during this time. Today Kiley and I went out and weeded one of the flower beds. I just had to get outside. It felt great. Hope none of our neighbors watched because I was quite the sight. I just sat down on the grass with my left leg straight, then scooted around on my bottom. It worked quite well AND my arms got a workout. When I stood up with the crutches, I noticed I had sat on a couple of warm, soggy plums that had fallen off the tree onto the lawn. What a bonus that was, lunch too! What would normally take me 10 minutes to do took an hour. Who cares...it's all good!!! Life is good. I feel very blessed.

Bruce had a quick trip to Salt Lake and wanted Kiley and I to go with him.
Kiley was sick and tired of traveling so we let her invite her friend Kennedy.

Bruce had his 35th class reunion from Altamont high on July 3rd. I think there were 29 classmates. Three had passed away in car accidents. They seemed to all have fun and enjoy each other. Some came from Texas and 1 from Russia to be there.
