hi Scott!! Mike Dunlap here. my wife Lori and I just did the Bone Island Half Ironman in Key West. We both finished under eight hours, and I was lucky enough to capture third in the sparsely populated 65-69 age group. Was reading about your experience in the Lake Tahoe swim, and realized that we were complaining about 63 degree water in Florida's January!!! no more....you are awesome, dude!!! Proud to be another Dunlap Family of athletes!! Your Fla "cousins" Clandunlap@gmail.com

Hey Scott! I'm a friend of Jill and Mikes! Our daughters go to school together AND Mike and I rowed in college together! I did the Pac Crest 1/2 too! (My 3rd tri overall and 1st at that distance) I'm totally HOOKED! Just thought I'd drop a note and say "Hi"! GREAT race! Congrats!

Way to go Scott. That's a phenomenal time for someone who has not done a Tri in some time.

Hi Scott,

I did the Pacific Crest Half-Ironman run section as a relay with my brother cycling and his wife rocking the swim. It was a beautiful day and fun weekend. Great to read your post. Your mom and dad seem to have provided you with great writing skills and athletic ability respectively.

Yours,
David Ross

(second) best. post. ever.

the first best being your Debbie/Mt. Diablo tale.

this has become my favorite blog. thank you for sharing all of this!

Your blog is the best. So many times in so many ways...

Great shot of Maia sprinting to the finish!
Your Dad looks like Superman - now we know where you get it from.
And your Mom's story had me laughing. Hey, I'm supposed to be going home from work and instead I'm sitting and reading about how fu it can be to come in last.
So I guess I'm leaving work dead last - and enjoying it!

PS: So glad to hear about Debbie.

BTW, for those following the Debbie Weil story, be sure to check out the comments on the blog entry - Debbie left a comment! Sounds like she is making an incredible recovery.

Mark -

I used Technorati (see the link at the bottom of the page). It's a free service that tells you what other blogs link to yours. Since you have a link to your interview, it came up.

Great entry, btw! Congrats on your win at Kettle Moraine!

2007-07-04T22:12:00.000-07:00

Great job all of Scott's family, and very respectable swim and bike splits. It's cool your whole family's into it. Those triathlete's are indeed an intense, competitive crowd. Diane, sorry you weren't dead last, but close enough (I had that honor at Tahoe 100 last year, and I'm prouder of that finish than any other). You're awesome.
By the way, Scott, how did you find my blog? I haven't told anyone about it except my wife?

2007-07-03T22:28:00.000-07:00

Oh Scott you have got to stop these blog entries that make me cry! Well it's your mom's fault this time I guess. (Nice job Diane!)
For some unknown reason I signed up for the international distance of the Donner Lake Tri this year, and like you have done no swimming in, well, years maybe. (Since my last tri?)My swim is 1.5K, and I strongly believe I will know what it is like to "come in last," at least in the swim portion. But anyway, your half-iron was really impressive, so I guess if you can do that then maybe I can at least keep from drowning. Thanks for the inspiration!
See you in Tahoe!

How wonderful! Congrats to you and your amazing family for all the great athletic feats accomplished :D.

Sounds like you all had a fabulous day!

Hi Scott,
Sounds like a great day out for the Dunlap clan.

Loved your mom's race report as well. Now we know where you got your great blogging skills.

I hear there is a great baby back rib BBQ place in Carson City, so you can stock up for your 100-miler...

Take care,
Pete

2007-07-03T17:23:00.000-07:00

Your Mom has an absolutely AWESOME attitude and sense of humor. Love it! The way I look at it, even last in a race, is WAY, WAY ahead of the majority of the population. Just getting out and participating makes life so fun and interesting. Someone always has to be last. And, she will not always be last, either. But, for personality and Mom-coolness factor, she is a winner!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

The Splash/Pedal/Dash was a quick slide and three 1 ft deep pools to run through (enough to get wet), a 1 mile bike, and a 1/4 mile run. Fastest time was 8:00!

Anupam - I LOVE the BOB Revolution stroller, although I don't run on the trails much with it. Roads, bike paths, and logging trails are all game, but if it's single track, I better be walking (I use a Kelty backpack). If your kid(s) are like Sophie, they do like a little shaking to get them to sleep, so some rough road actually helps. We are known to do 10-12 miles on the Crystal Springs trail fairly regularly. It's nice to have the snacks and water in the carrier too!

2007-07-03T10:53:00.000-07:00

Hey Scott:

Nice post as usual. You make it interesting without going into detailed split times and what not. I would have given up at the first port-a-pottie stop :-)

I see that your daughter has the Revolution jogging stroller. Do you run with her in it? I ask because I tried out mine last weekend for 4 miles or so. But my wife was really worried that my 7 month old would be 'shaken' by his first trail running experience.

I can't believe kids are doing tri's! How far is the splash pedal dash?

2007-07-03T08:18:00.000-07:00

Great job and what a fun family day! I love your mom's "10th in age group" comment.

And yeah - triathletes and road runners seem to be A LOT less willing to chat in a race that ultra runners. It's an interesting contrast.

Oh my God, Scott, you have an absolutely amazing family! I mean, I am in such an owe...may be because I come from the country where you're either competitive at national level or don't do any excercise after high school at all (as in after years of getting grief from my folks I now hide that I still run)...but the story of your extended family, all of them, not only doing it, but actually enjoying it to the moon and back...I am jealous, and very very happy for each and every one of you. Go, Mam, and Dad, and Maia, you too:) and Dunlap clan! If you are looking for adoptions, think of me, please:)

Great post Scott!

Be careful in the Death Ride - remember to save some juice for that last long 5th climb...

See you at TRT.
