So fun to volunteer, promote and run with many familiar faces from my many years as race director of Tri for Jimmy formerly Wave Triathlon and my past 17 years as a triathlete in Western Massachusetts.
If you heard "Corral: color, find your matching shamrock" then you saw/heard me at Holyoke St. Patrick's Road Race.
And you may have heard " Want to try a tri? How about a beginner triathlon, relay, solo, Shorter than today!"
My favorites are those who walk 25-30 feet away and turn around and come back for a flyer.They make my heart swell, especially when they come up to me on race day ❀️
Holyoke did not disappoint, and never has.❀️❀️❀️


Looking forward to seeing many of you out there!!

I love hearing from my athletes who are cross training already.
Josh sent me a great view from his hike along the ridge line of the Metacomet trail overlooking the course, including Hampton Ponds State Park, County Road and North Road even the distant Whiteloaf pass.
Thanks Josh! See you June 2nd for my 15th year.
Thanks to all my athletes and sponsors for your constant support.
