SB Tri Club Members on top of the podium just having fun!
March 24, 2012 Lake Lopez, CA -
My goal this year is to do Alcatraz with Sandy Roberts and along the way do a few races mostly to support my awesome boyfriend who loves to race. I signed up for the March Series Triathlon a few weeks before race because I enjoyed racing around Lake Lopez in the past. A few days before the race the weather was sounding awful. I prepared my car for the onslaught of mud by putting a tarp down in the back. Got my old 1988 steel bike in there and hoped nobody would get hurt racing in the rain.
On race day Peter Nielson and I were running late to pick up our packets.
My transition was super fast and off I went passing a few of my leapfrog guys that I saw while biking.
(Editor note, Kelly is a generous supporter of racers of all abilities, with decades of race experience, and to be found on the race course, or cheering on racers; we all love "Jolly" for positive encouragement and great pictures she documents for the club.)
