sunrise start

This summer has been incredibly abundant with training and racing treasures.  I have had the pleasure now of racing twice in 6 weeks with a group of WAVES where there was no shortage of effort, inspiration or fun.  There were so many victories, large and small to celebrate, from Karen doubling (and then some) her longest distance open water swim EVER to Bode feeling like she was getting stronger each mile of the run (maybe due to the Friday morning trail run + TRX workouts!).  The weather was fantastic, the race was well run and the cherries and M&Ms afterward were delicious!

And in case you are wondering what’s next— for many of us it’s the Atlantic City Triathlon in September!
