The house was full for this one, 40 strong on the course and plenty of cheering support.  Although the moon must have been full somewhere, we had many late entries, missing swimmers, bikers, runners, non-finishing entrants, mass-hysteria, cats sleeping with dogs.........now to the good stuff.  

 

In the pond we had Amy "Aquagirl" Curry taking over for the absent Ian Crowley, as she dominated the extended buoy course out of the water. That buoy was so far out it was added to the boating charts. The bike course went without accident on the slightly wet surface.

 

Although Paul Hennessey couldn't make the race, his spiritual words of bike safety caution hung on every wheel.

 

Who was that masked helmet/visor man on the bike? None other that Vinny "Masked Advenger" Miserandio as he stole the yellow jersey on this day with the top bike split. Congrats to Beth Pashal (Tri-newbe 1st timer), blazing on a "cross-bike" and finishing the full Tri in 12th place. Brilliant!

 

Brandi has some high-test prospects in that Salem Tri-training group.  John "Super-Human" Martin ran away with the best run time and top spot in the race, although Vinny gave him a good scare for a while there. Close to John's Achilles running heel were the fleet-of-foot (and aerodynamic) duo of  Paul Carruccio and Stephen Martin, and  also Shane "Kickmaster" Sherwood.  Looks like a good 4x400 relay team there.

 

Mike Fitz took his leadership/socializing role in Paul's absence a little too seriously as he was caught gabbing 100-ft from the finish and was smoked by the lighter than ever Kelly Philbin (nice kick Kel). Last week Mike was caught hittin' the pond late because he was too busy zipping up a few of the female athletes. Mike my man, I want to party with you.

 

I'd like to thank the young Miss Martin for handing out the watermelon to all the finishers.  Congrats to all, sorry this is so late.
