Ah! Summer in New England!
The most beautiful place I know for swimming...
I took these photos as I competed in the
Whaling City Triathlon in New Bedford, MA, in 2012.
Yes, I was swimming as I took the photo above...
I was cycling as this athlete came up
quickly to pass me on his bike:
The Whaling City Triathlon is one of my favorites.
Let me tell you why!
The swim is 1/4 mile in the mild
(74-degree) waters of Buzzards Bay...
The bike leg is 2 loops of a flat 6-mile course
(12 miles total) on roads that are
closed to motor traffic...
...and the run is a sweet, flat out-and-back
with water views every step of the way!
The 2014 Whaling City Triathlon
is just days away: Sunday, July 6, 2014.
You can register online
until 3 pm on July 4, 2014.
What could be more fun this weekend?
(Not sure you can swim, bike, and run
the whole course? Then find two friends
and enter as a relay team!)
Hope to see you there!
