  • Comments: Tri The Parks / TriBlueSky always does a good job. Post race snacks are basic, so if you're staying for the awards, bring a big sandwich.

  • Comments: Although I was disappointed with this race, I will not let that hinder my goals and where I want to go. I know there are several areas that I need to improve on and this was an eye opener for me. I know I said earlier that this was the beginning of my triathlon journey but my mentality has started to shift into my Ironman journey┬Ł. This race reminds me of how important my goal of finishing Florida is to me. I am ready to get better and keep fighting to get to my goal.

  • Comments: John Tanner is a deceptively difficult course and always brings out the fast ones at the beginning of the season. Looking forward to another round at the end of the year to measure my progress.

  • Comments: Great race for a first one of the season. PR by 6-7 minutes from last year and I know I can shave off at least 10 more with the good bike and run. Will be back :)

  • Comments: Very good event. Perfect weather day. I mis-read the preliminary results as posted and thought I was 4th. Turned out I finished 2nd! I should have stayed for the awards.

  • Comments: I love the tri the parks series. Good races, good competition, good organization. Overall, had a great day with my teammates! Got a chance to see the Dr (who is in his 90s) cross the finish line after falling down about 30 yards from the finish. Seeing him finish was a great moment. I love this sport because it tends to bring out the best in people!

  • Comments: Love Tanner...great kick in the head to start the season. it will tell you your weak spots. I am not completely surprised my my performance. I have been in base mode for an extended time and with little intensity, I knew I would be some what flat. I was hoping I could dig a little deeper, but it was not there. Spending the day with Chris (alltom1) made me realize what a great friend I have in him. One of the best things about tri has been the new friends I have made along the way.

  • Comments: Tri The Parks series puts on a good race. Post race: cookies, bananas, bagels, oranges. What drink stations?! There were plenty, but with all the rain, I was just drinking what was running down my face.
