2013 Run & Ride Report

Kathleen Crowley spent last Sunday at the 2013 Run & Ride…here is her race report.

My heart is pumping. I’m clearly anxious about the start in 5 minutes. Do I have everything I need? Did I prepare well enough? Finally, I count down, 5…4…3…2…1…GO! I step aside, and…they’re off! Kids of all ages run through the first set of cones and on to the pathway. Phew! They’ve begun the running leg of their mini-race with eager looks in the eyes and lots of encouragement from parents and spectators. Within minutes, they return and grab their bikes for the 1 mile leg in the other direction. I race to reset some cones on the tight, sandy corner near the finish, hoping to avoid any wipeouts. Eventually, they all pedal across the finish line and receive a blue ribbon for participation. Smiles all around! (more…)

Team Spotlight: Anna-Lisette Davis
