It was a comfortable, sunny day out – a really nice day for me as a spectator to hang out outside and cheer on the athletes. Although I must say, I always feel odd sitting on the sidelines because I feel like I should be out there racing too!
I thought Firm did a nice job putting on the race, with the exception of a few little issues. They’re the race management company holding the Half Ironman we are training for this summer, so it was good to see how they set-up and whatnot. And they had some pretty awesome music going at the start/finish.
I was also excited to run into Barry Phelps, a great triathlete who I’ve known for a few years through Triumph Triathlon (a free triathlon group in Boston – I highly recommend checking it out). Congrats to Barry, as he finished 4th overall and took 1st in his age group!
