TFI Development Team Rocks Chisago Kids Tri

Sporting their podium bling.
TJ, Zach and Jenna were all racing at the storm delayed Chisago Lakes Kids Tri on Saturday.  Not even a 3 hour wait could keep them off the podium as the placed 3rd, 1st and 1st in their divisions.

Podium Finishes for TFI Athletes

This weekend wasn't quite as busy last weekend for TFI athletes, but we did have two racers. 

Melissa was racing the short course at Heart of Lakes Tri in Annandale.  It was only her second triathlon ever and she finished 2nd in her age group.  We can't wait to hear the details.  Congrats Melissa!

Zach, on the development team, raced at the Miracle Kids Tri at Lake Nokomis.  The distances were a big jump for him, but he had a great race and wants to do it next year.  Here he is striding out T2. [Yeah it's not a great shot, but you try yelling encouragement and working 2 cameras]

Zach was coming off his win at Pewaukee last week.  He had a strong swim and was out of the water first, lost a few places in transition, came off the bike as the first 12 year old and then ran down the remaining 13 year old (who had started 1 minute in front).  Here he is with his bling.
