Team River Runner Biathlon 2010

Great time Sunday morning! Paddled upstream to Three Sisters, downstream to Key Bridge, and back to the Canoe Club for the kayak leg (about a mile), and then ran along the C&O canal for the running leg (about 3 miles but it felt like 4!). It was a pleasure and an honor to support such a worthy cause. About 200 people competed, including about 20 wounded warriors. Another 20 or so volunteers helped with myriad tasks such as pulling the boats out of the water at the transition point. I want to thank all my supporters, especially my 7 sponsors: Cynthia, Richard, Janet, PK / PM, Mary, AJKA, and MFL / GG. We raised $265 towards the goal of $40,000 to further the TRR mission of helping wounded warriors heal through paddle sports. Check the website in a few days for pics and race results!
