I entered my family in the The SimplyStu Worldwide Triathlon II on March 24th, 25th. I thought this would be a great way to introduce my children to the sport I enjoy so much. It was snowing here in Massachusetts last weekend so we had to postpone it until this weekend.
We loaded up the bikes Staurday morning and headed to the beach. The beach has a large closed parking lot that was perfect for the race. We setup some cones in a .25-mile circle with a transition area close to the car. We headed to the water for the swim start, but the kids decided to skip the swim due to the fact the there was no lifeguard on duty. Safety first!
Everybody lined up at the start for five loops of the bike course. Brennen and Kaitlyn started out strong, but everybody caught up at the end. The kids need to work on their transition times!
We headed out on the run, five more loops. This is where the field started to open up and everybody was giving it all they had.
The finish was very close with Cullen edging out mommy in the end for the win!
I think Cullen summed it up best “This was the best-est day ever!”
I ran the Officer Thomas Giunta Memorial 5K
I finished 103 out of 753 finishers. My official time 22:35
