Yesterday a bunch of us were resistered for the Lake Mead Triathlon. Chantel and I dropped out so we could head home and see our kids after a long week away. Daniel, Mac, and Tommy still competed. I received a very upset text from Daniel because he and another competitor had found a man in the water nonresponsive. They held the man up for what seemed like an eternity before a rescuer came to help get him out of the water. I just read on line that the man died. So sad. Patrick Hayden. He was a former high school principle and an avid swimmer. Daniel is definitely shaken up very similarly to how Chantel felt when she saw the woman stop breathing at our last triathlon. It may just have been his time. He was there with his family. Hopefully he died knowing he was loved .
