Memories from Copenhagen

We had an incredible week in Copenhagen for the World Outgames, but it is good to be back home in Nashville. This past weekend we had a reunion dinner with the kids and Mom and it reinforced the central importance of family in our lives. We appreciate the love and support shown by them and our friends more than we can say.

We will keep the blog up as we organize Team Nashville for the Gay Games in Cologne for 2010.

Here are a few parting shots from Copenhagen.

Farvel, Sam and Keith

Sam wins bronze in triathlon

We were notified today that Sam won the bronze medal in his age group for the triathlon! We left immediately after the event to pack for Stockholm and did not know the final results until today. Back in Copenhagen for one final night. The Outgames delivered the medal to the hotel upon our arrival. Sam put a lot into this race and is deserving of his bronze. What a great surprise ending for the trip! As you can imagine, I am very proud of Sam. Thanks to all of our family and friends for encouraging and supporting us along the way. Keith

More pics from the race

Here are a few more shots from the triathlon today at the Orsund in Copenhagen. It was great fun but one of the craziest things I have ever done. Sam

Cold but happy!

Sam finished the triathlon this morning in Copenhagen harbor. He had a great race, despite the water temperature of 62F degrees! He thought he would get used to it when the race got underway. No way! Here is a pic of Sam finishing the swim. Off to the Closing Ceremonies. More later. Keith
