LONG gets Silver

WooHOOO! Team LONG pulled off a second place finish at the Greenville Sprint Triathlon (largest tri in South Carolina, with just about 700 participants).


What began as a very stormy morning - with threat of changing the race to a duathlon - ended up being a great day. Doug started the race out with a phenomenal swim, Mustang Sally sped through the super wet/slick/hilly bike course, and I tried to uphold my end of the deal by busting it on the run.

This race had, by far, the most relay teams I've seen on a Set Up Events participant list... so, I had no idea what to expect. I couldn't have been more proud to see our team listed in the second place position. For full results, click HERE.
(sorry, I have to mention... it was a 2 loop run course. There is no way someone ran an 11:36)

Mom & Dad: Thank you so much. You both inspire me - each and every day. Love.
