 Thunder and lightening, along with a torrential downpour accommodated us, [athletes] to the transition area of the GCT. While driving, I received a text: swim is cancelled, bummer for those who have diligently trained for a triathlon, Paula being one of them.

 As the clock ticked toward the start of the race, 7:30 a.m., the rain was replaced with humidity. Not sure which is worse …

 We, the Grunt Girls excitedly conversed with fellow athletes and our supporters until 7:20 a.m. The GCT is the first time we raced as a team.

 The results:  

Duathlon Relay, injuries prevented us from racing the full event.
Team Chisnell/Herbert: – 2:01
Team Rhea/Seaman – 2:13  
Team Saporito/Freeman – 2: 18  

OLY Tri turned Du
Brooke Starkoff – 2:56

Sprint DU
Paula Bielfelt  – 1: 20

The entire team did a great job. Congratulations Paula ( this was her first multi-sport event).

Next on our list: Twilight 8K Trail Run. Thursday, Aug. 13, 7 p.m.
