The racing season kicked off yesterday with a bang at Max Performance’s Season Opener Du and Tri in Hopkinton, MA. With road construction, the bike course was shortened to a sprinty 8.3 miles, making for a fast course for our racers. Ruth braved the 58 degree water temps and mandatory wetsuit rule (didn’t have to tell her twice) to do the triathlon, Andrea, Trinity, Z, Melaney, Carole, and Becky did the individual duathlon, and Kim did a special mother’s day relay with family. It was a perfect day for racing, and TE ladies had a strong showing, with Carole coming in third overall for women, Z and Becky coming in second in their age groups, and Kim’s relay team coming in first for female relay team in the triathlon (take your win, Kim!). Here are some shots from the day…Jealous of the soma system recovery tent shot? Z bought some special recovery treats for all of us to use at the Escape the Cape house in just two weeks, so don’t worry, you’ll get another shot at excrutiating bodywork soon! There’s still a few spots left to register for EtC if you haven’t yet, or just come down to stay in the house and cheer!
