Epic Sports Marketing's Masters Triathlon at Moss Park was the grand finale for the Blanchard Park Y Tri team.  We had competitors in all races; sprint, olympic, triathlon, duathlon and aquabike.  Everyone performed well despite the colder than we were used to temperatures.  Many of us were racing for the first time or the first time at a new distance.

Heather Surrency        4th Female 40-44 Triathlon          2:48:12
Brice Gyurisko            1st Male Military Triathlon           2:57:59

We want to recognize Brice's determination to finish the race.  Both of his eyes became chemical burned during or after the swim and then both cornea's became scratched yet he continued on through the bike and run, half blind.  What an example of will power (don't try this at home ;)

Also, our very own Jim Diaz competed in the Great Floridian Intermediate length triathlon last weekend and felt great.  He had been training for the Augusta 70.3 but registration had just closed before he signed up.  So he signed up to take on the hills of Clermont, including Sugar Loaf, and finished 4 miles short of the 1/2 IM distance in 7 hours with very little pain.  Awesome performance Jim!

Stay tuned for the Blanchard Park Y Tri team's Winter season as we take on the OUC 1/2 marathon and start setting goals for the 2012 season.
