This weekend we'll be at the Great Greenbrier River Race, cheering on sons Derek, Aaron and George, granddaughter Haley and grandson Jared as they compete in their first-ever triathlon.
The race includes three legs: kayak, biking and running. the weather calls for cool and cloudy with possible showers and thunderstorms. We've packed umbrellas, boots, warm clothes and coats because Pocahontas county is pretty high in the West Virginia mountains and a lot cooler than our home county.
We'll be staying at the Brazen Head Inn in Mingo, WV, where we stayed last October. The hospitality of owners Will and Jill makes the Brazen Head as welcoming as a family home. Several other family members will be there too, including Jon's wife and three of his daughters. We were disappointed that his daughter Jordan and her daughter Cadyn could not join us to celebrate Cadyn's first birthday. We had the party all planned! But such is life.
Jon had planned to be part of this race too. But George will be riding Jon's bike, so in some way I think Jon will be with us.
Wish the ones competing luck tomorrow! I will have pictures to post when we return home.
