At The Cycle Project, we know it is important for kids to be active and eat well so they can grow up enjoying a healthy lifestyle. However, we also feel that we, as adults, we need to lead by example and live the same active lifestyle we expect of our kids. That’s why we have created the group Tri To Stop Obesity! We want to help adults get out and be that positive motivation. No matter what your ability level (from never done a tri, to seasoned vet) we want you to come train with us and race with us as we raise awareness for childhood obesity.
ON JUNE 10, 2012, THE CYCLE PROJECT COMPLETED ITS FIRST TRIATHLON FOR TRI TO STOP OBESITY! The team consisted of 14 triathletes, 12 of whom had never completed a triathlon before this race. After 4 months of hard work and training every person on the team earned the right to call themselves a triathlete.
As their coach, I can’t even express how proud I am of each and every one of them for dedicating all of their time, energy and effort into making themselves the best triathletes they could. Seeing them all together race morning in their team kits, warming up together as a team and then individually crossing the finish line with smiles on their faces was the most rewarding and exciting part of the whole experience for me.
We had a lot of family and friends supporting our team at the race, all in orange t-shirts, cheering everyone throughout the course. Seeing all the orange shirts rooting for The Cycle Project as I was out on the course puts this triathlon as my second favorite race out of all the triathlons I have ever done (the first was carrying my daughter across the finish line at my first Ironman). I know the rest of the team appreciated the support and motivation out on the course as well.
After the race, the entire team and support crew were able to enjoy a relaxing BBQ as a reward for everyone’s efforts, both competing and cheering throughout the day! I can’t wait to start training for our next triathlon and have new people join our team in these adventures. If thats you, let us know and we will get you started with us!
