There was no sleeping in on Father's Day this year for dads and granddads of the MINI COW TRI CLUB. Instead, by 6:45 a.m. they found themselves in our state's capital wandering around the transition area of the Truxtun Youth Triathlon, the second stop of the Maryland Youth Triathlon Series.
The MINI COW TRI CLUB raced to eight top five finishes including four podium finishes: two firsts, a second and a third. Among the 150 boys and girls ages 7 to 12 who raced the shorter course, Grace (12) posted the fastest time with a 24:03, while Benjamin (9) posted the sixth fastest with a 26:02. The four triathletes who finished between Grace and Benjamin were all in the Male 11-12 age group.
Cowgratulations to all of our MINI COW TRI CLUB triathletes, and a big thank MOO to all the MINI COW TRI CLUB dads and granddads who shared their day—and their families—with us. Next up on our cowendar, the TriColumbia Kidz Triathlon in Columbia, MD on July 24.
