It was cold, wet, and rainy, but that didn’t stop me and a couple thousand of my closest friends from competing in the Nation’s Triathlon yesterday morning. It was a (potentially) record-breaking crowd swimming in the Potomac (which was actually quite pleasant– my favorite leg by far!), biking out to Maryland and then up Rock Creek Park, and running around the Mall and Hains Point. Even Mayor Fenty got in on the action. The Nation’s Tri is a major Team in Training goal race, and yesterday’s event raised millions for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
