This Sunday was all about cheering on our teammates for the:
Since 2009, Vikas and I have been a part of the NYC Chapter of Team in Training, cheering, training, and completing half-marathons and marathons while raising money to cure cancer. This was our first time, however…
…cheering for our friends in a triathlon. It was so much fun!
Regarding endurance events, my teammates and I always say that training is the hard part – the event day is a party. We were delighted to see that many of the triathletes, like superman here, several tutu-clad participants, and other fun-costume-wearing folks, feel the same way!
In addition to superman, we saw so many incredible athletes, teammates, and friends, including:
/ Ajanta Kalyanpur /
/ Candace Davies /
/ Clare Hudson /
/ Courtney Natoli /
/ Kristy Lysik /
/ Lisa Bianchi /
/ Missy Singer /
/ this amazing Achilles Team athlete /
and / Shujaat Islam /, one of my husband’s closest friends for over 15 years!

We had the best time shouting support, capturing photos, and seeing our friends and peers fly by. The NYC Tri is a wonderful event – my husband and I may even train for it one of these days. 😀 Go Team!
