I signed up for this race last minute mostly because Missie Vess offered to keep an eye on Leila (Mark is on a business trip.) After I signed up, Scott Zoller-Gritz, asked if Samantha would like to volunteer with his daughters at the Tri.
The race itself as was good, slightly warm,
Swim-400 meter-10:17-I did better on the swim then I thought. T1-1:44
Bike-14 miles-49:10there were a few hills, but I was able to pass people & was never passed. The only thing I didn't like was the first 2 miles, in which we had to pass the runners, there was no room to pass and it made me nervous.
Run-3 miles-24:06- Run was good,was able to pass people & the best was seeing Samantha, Abby and Wendy Newtons sons. Mini MMTC rocked the water stop.
Thanks to Missie for keeping an eye on Leila and Isaac. The kids and I then had a fun time swimming in the pool afterwards until it became too cold for us. We finished the day with dinner with the "Mello Newton's."
I started doing Tri's so I could stay fit and do more than just running. But it has grown from there. I & my family now do tri's and for some races we raise funds for charity. I & Mark are so happy we are part of this MMTC family. PS Dad-Happy Father's Day-wish you coukd see the triathletes we have become."
