Four BPY Tri Club members competed in the Gator Half Iron triathlon today. We had wind, rain, more wind, more rain and at times were racing in squall-like conditions!

But most would take that over blazing heat & humidity any day. Everyone finished well. Here are the race results:

2nd place M30-34 Chris 6:10:13 (FIRST half iron!)
6th place M40-44 Pastor Paul 5:36:29 (a PR!)
2nd place F30-34 Coach Jacklynn 5:18:43 (FIRST half iron!)
Female Masters Shirley 5:12:22 (a PR!)

What a fun day!!

More photos & race thoughts to come. Kudos to Daniela, John, Julie(s) and family members for being there to cheer & support us!

Shirly!! Thank you so much for the encouragement during my training. And thank you for just being AWESOME! We all absolutely love you.
How's the ankle??

I am so proud to be a part of this team! I saw everyone finish from the food/medical tent nearby the finish line and you all came in strong. I have what appears to be a grade 1 ankle sprain (rolled it on something ~mile 1 of the run course). Hopefully in a couple weeks I'll be able to resume my usual workouts. For now, mostly RICE and maybe some easy swimming and spinning in a few days. No worries, I'll be back!!!

RICE? -- weren't they serving rice with chicken in the recovery tent -or was that the medical tent :) ?

These races are so much more enjoyable when you do them with others that you know -- and with great cheering. John, Daniela, and Julies (plural) plus families as well -- it was great -- to be done! Looking forward to the rest of the season with the BPY tri-club... Paul

That was actually gator in that rice. But it did taste like chicken :-)

I'm so impressed with all of you! You're such an inspiration to me -- I totally want to do a half ironman someday.

Diane said...

I am with you, Andrea! They are awesome....Let's plan that half ironman together, girl! You are all an inspiration of what is possible!
