Roman’s Mom, Rita Schwimer completed her first triathlon. Roman happily takes credit for helping his Mom prep for the big event. Rita is 2nd from the right in the first row. Does she look buff or what???
There were 5,000 triathletes participating. Of that number 379 of us were from different Team in Training chapters from around the country. Team in Training raised 1.8 million dollars for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. It was a fantastic weekend!! I was fortunate enough to meet many cancer survivors and they really are the true heroes. It was an Olympic distance tri which consisted of a 1-mile ocean swim, 25-mile bike followed by a 6-mile run. It was just an awesome event and I plan on doing more tri’s this summer. I have one in Ann Arbor at the end of June. By the way…I have a really great running partner that helped with the training 🙂
