Your kindness to me today touched me deeply. It so happened that, after almost a quarter century in this activity, physical issues have caused me to retire today. This was, in fact, my final effort. That it came on my 80th birthday, though bitter-sweet, seemed rather fitting. I have been enormously fortunate as both an athlete and official. Today, all of the trifitness team put a beautiful exclamation point on those years. Thank you. Alan S.
Pascale, Thank you for making my first sprint triathalon an enjoyable experience. It was quite a challenge and the adrenaline was definitely flowing as I got caught up in the moment. Three of us trained and entered the race together as newbies. (A health teacher, a consumer sciences teacher (nutrition) and a physical education teacher.) We all learned some lessons along the way. Most important of all, on race day, we all finished and felt a great sense of accomplishment. Today in school we wore our shirts proudly and shared motivational stories with our students.
The trifitness staff and volunteers at the Seaside Sprint Triathlon were wonderful. Everyone was positive, upbeat, and extremely helpful. Thanks for co-ordinating a fun event! - Barb
