We had an awesome day at the Cranberry Trifest this past Sunday! We had a great showing by the Dreamfar team, and some athlete firsts. Cathie Liang, and Scott Groth completed their first Olympic, while Joe Johnson completed his second, all finished with smiles on their faces! Andrea Yodsampa did her first swim as part of the sprint relay with me, and now she's ready to take on the full sprint at Title 9. Howard Loree, and Joe Hanley improved their times over previous years. Congratulations to everyone!
Catherine Allan and her daughter took on the Boston Tri this past weekend as well. Ellie was 1st in the 13-15 age group for the Splash and Dash on Saturday and then took 1st in the 19 and under age group at the Sprint race on Sunday (and got a great photo with triathlete Karen Smyers, former Triathlon World Champion). Catherine's race was a day of lessons learned - after a grueling work week culminating in overnight call on Friday night and insomnia on Saturday she was not at her best! She wanted to quit at every phase, but she refocused on taking it in small bites and was happy to finish. Now she's getting some sleep! Way to push through Catherine, and congrats Ellie!
