This morning, Chad finished the last of this 4-race series that takes place every year on the North Shore of Oahu. This race was the longest of the four -- 2.2 miles from Pipeline beach park to Waimea Bay. He finished 3rd in his age group for this race and for the whole entire series. I am one proud wifey, and the boys were beyond ecstatic << can you tell? >> We had a tiny taste of competition here, half a world away from the excitement of the Olympics. He's no Michael Phelps, but he's our champion. Well done, Chad!
