Triathlon Schmiathlon Part II: After the Wrath

.!. So innocent and naive in the before shot, this one shows us a bit more weathered from the storm. Actually, I’d say we don’t look quite as abused as I would have imagined us being. It was an incredible feat by all. Anyone who wants to jump on board, we have a few more […]
