It was a warm and sunny Saturday, June 18th as Kristi Paradis struck out on the Patriot Half Ironman course, her first of the season. She wasn’t sure how she was going to do, but later reported, “Not sure of my time yet, but felt good throughout.”
Well, maybe she should have stuck around to find out because she placed 2nd in her age group (35-39)!!! With an overall time of 5:39:49, she completed the 1.2 mile swim in 41:38, biked 56 miles in 2:55:48, then still had some kick to finish the 1/2 marathon in 1:55:49.
Well done Kristi!! You’ve worked very hard and we are all very proud of you!!
