Kokopelli Triathlon

Heather has been training since she had Gemma for a sprint Triathlon in St. George. Today she competed and did a great job. They first started at Sand Hollow Reservoir and swam out and back 1/2 mile. They then transitioned onto there bikes and rode around the reservoir for a total of 12.1 miles. They then ran 3 miles. I was very proud of her for doing this and she did a great job. She ran the last 200 feet with Gemma and Hallie.

We went to my dads cabin to cut some wood. I was cutting a small tree and the blade caught the edge of my pants and sucked the blade into my left thigh. I looked down and knew it wasn't good. I threw the chain saw in the pickup bed and headed up the hill to the cabin. I ran into the cabin and wrapped a couple dish towels on my leg. Heather gathered up the kids and our stuff and we were off. Heather drove down the canyon which she had never done with a trailer on. She dropped me off at the ER and took the kids to my dads. Dr. Wilson came in and gave me some shots to numb the injury, which hurt worse than the injury! Then he cut
out the damaged tissue and started stapling up the injury.
The staples were not holding the cut together right so he ended
up stitching the whole thing together. My dad says that I can't
use his saw any more that I have to use my "kiddie" saw.
