Ah!  Summer in New England!

The most beautiful place I know for swimming...
cycling...and running!

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:

smiled for the small camera in my hand:

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!
