Photos from Gen Smallwood Tris!
Here are some Photos from General Smallwood Olympic Triathlon Last weekend!Getting stretched out for the 1500 meter swim. Water Temp in the Potomac was 71C, hence the wetsuit. I did get a kick out of the 'No Swimming' sign...
Even Cole got into it, he wanted to do the race too, but it wasn't swim floaty or tricycle legal, but he did the running NO PROBLEM!!!
Out of the swim and getting the wetsuit off. It was a LONG transition, about 1/4 mile run from the water to the bikes!
After a good transition, I got on the bike and started going. Kept my average up around 20 mph the whole time...
I don't remember being this happy at the start of the run, guess seeing Cole and Betsy made me smile temporarily?
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
