  • Comments: This race was my first triathlon 2 years ago. I've definitely come a long way. I took about 4 minutes off my time. I could have taken more off, but the cold weather required additional gear in transition. I also lost at least a minute of time during transition. I didn't do any sprints last year, so it was odd being done with each event as quickly as I was. RTC puts on a good race. It's great to get so much support from other members of the club during and after the race.

  • Comments: Great race - RTC, Peluso, and Set-up throw a great race! I love the digs at GRAP and the swim format (now that I'm not afraid to swim) and will keep doing this race every year if I can!

  • Comments: It was another picture perfect race day in Richmond, and Ed, Adam, Brian, and I braved 3 a.m. alarms to make the 75-minute drive to the Aquatics Center in Chesterfield to test our mettle and see what would win out - our off-season training or Father Time and the winter brews. What’s your guess? And, yes, I did say Brian. He made my day by surprising me with his last-minute re-entry to the race. He had a wry smile on his face when we ran into each other in the line to pick up our chips. Put me in the right frame of mind as we left transition and headed for the pool. Last year I finished in 1:07:32 in my first-ever triathlon. This year I was determined to go sub-1:05:00, which I did finishing 28th overall (6th AG) in 1:04:10. Finished 13th overall on the bike (2nd AG) thanks in part to my sweet new whip! swim - 6:33 (35 OA, 3 AG) T1 - 1:07 (38 OA, 6 AG) bike - 32:10 (13 OA, 2 AG) T2 - 1:15 (81 OA, 10 AG) run - 23:06 (87 OA, 13 AG) For anyone interested in the race specifics,

  • Comments: This was a good first race. Now that I've done one, I know what to expect and what to improve upon. Swim needs work, as does T1. Will continue to work.

  • Comments: Great race for me. 4th anniversary of my father's passing, so I wanted to accomplish something. I took a first in Clydesdales, my first podium. Excited for first half iron in 1 week.
