Our Newest Triathletes!

Congratulations to our newest triathletes! Great job on your accomplishments this past weekend! Everyone did a great job, and Pete and I are so very proud of each and every single one of you!
We would also like to thank EDGE Cyclesports and Road Runners Sports and TRISWIM for opening their doors to our students. Thank you.

If you didn't know by now, we not only have students running, they are swimming and biking too. Some of them, did not know how to ride a bike, and some did not even know how to put their head in the water, let alone swim! Guess what? They have been training and learning, or learning and training, and this past weekend busted out their first Sprint Triathlon and or International Triathlon!

We also had our first grandma and grandson team! Randy is Connie's grandson, and he had kind of a rough morning. What a sport he is, and so tough! Randy had a bike accident the morning of his race, before his event. He got pretty scrapped up on his chin, knee, and hand. Blood was everywhere! He went to the medical tent, and the medical guys couldn't believe Randy still wanted to compete after his mishap. Not only did he compete and finish, but finished with a great time and 7th in his age group! Great job Randy! I cant even imagine how he would have done without being hurt and in pain.

When we first started out, we started because we wanted a group that could help "average people"accomplish whatever goal they had. Not to say we know everything, or we are the best at everything, because we are not. What we are, is average. We believe that if we can do it, so can you, and you are all worth it! Any dream is achievable, and we like being a part of your dreams and making them happen for you. Thank you for letting Pete and I be a part of your lives and sometimes seeing the bare rawness of it.
