The Gloucester Tri

The past couple of weeks have been totally focused on the Gloucester Tri that Janda started this year. It's been pretty hectic with meetings, group rides, volunteer meetings, setup and course marking! Thank goodness we had good weather yesterday b/c the whole thing was awesome. It was really cool to see a triathlon happen in Gloucester and I think that the course, the racers and the spectators made it unbelievable. Congratulations Janda for bringing your idea to fruition!

Plus a lot of our friends and many of Janda's athletes did the race and ended up on the podium-so it was a good day all around!

Feel free to pass the link along to Janda or anyone else who might be interested. I think we covered the race pretty well.

Great job to Janda, Bill and everyone else involved!
