That pretty much sums it up.  The sprint tri in Clermont was a huge success for the Blanchard Park Y Tri team.  We had more than 20 people racing and several people cheering from "Team Green".  The general feeling was that the swim was a little shorter than last year but the bike and the run were the same.  The temp seemed a little bit cooler (man, it was hot last year).  I'm not 100% certain but I am fairly sure that everyone who raced last year beat their time this year.  Awesome show of consistency and dedication.
Also, during the triathlon, Sommer Sports hosted a 5k that our very own Jennifer Gerard competed in and placed 7th in her age group.  Go Jennifer!!
Also also, Renee Tercsak not only went out to Clermont on Saturday to cheer on the team ... she went back out to Clermont on Sunday to compete in the Half Iron tri and placed 1st.  Awesome!!
