Tri Campers Reign over Local Tri

Amy, Alan, Yongmin, Shelia, Julie, Matt, Barbara, Kevin are my spotlights this week. After a grueling 3 days of training including 14,000 feet of climbing and up to 23 miles of running these athletes participated in Tri the Mountains Triathlon July 24th!

On tired legs, they clean up! Racing strong and having a great time!

Hard Fought For Finish!

Congratulations to Yongmin Sheng who finished Muncie 70.3 with a smile.
