This year our patience paid off. All aspects of the race were superb. Calm and warn ocean, very light winds on bike, and warm but not too hot running weather. The KW Tri sprint is a race I do side by side with my wife, Jeanine. She tolerates my training and race schedule. Its the least I can do and the right thing to do. I know she feels comfortable with me as she does not race as often as I do, not even close. and she likes me to push her LOL. Marital bonding I call it. Last years swim was a challenge and I know she was scared to death. She did really well for not traing much.
This years trip was with the Marino's , Denny Kane and Ellie, the Howards (stacey just missed third by 10 secs), the Marriners (third place relay), and the Deams (although we didnt see them much). There's a local swim group (Key West Sunrise Swim Club) that hosts a practice swim and other swims while we are there. Taz is the leader and full of knowledge and experience.
If you haven't been to KW, try it ! Join us in 2020 for the triathlon !
