Today, several of my friends took part in the New York City Triathlon. I wish to take this time to congratulate a few of them on their tremendous performances.
As always, Melissa Stockwell put on a show.
For consecutive years now numbering double digits, Caroline Gaynor raced through the streets of New York. As she has many times over, she did so this year as a race guide for an athlete. This year, it was to guide Leona Emberson for the second consecutive year.
Third time is the charm for the talented, amazing, and beautiful, Jenna Parker who flew through the one mile Hudson River swim in just over eleven minutes, rip roared her way through the 24.8 mile bike ride in about 1:07, then was never quite challenged during her 6.2 mile run around Central Park which she completed in just over thirty-seven minutes to storm home as the Queen of New York City winning this race's female pro division for the first time with a time of 2:01:50!!
Congratulations to these fabulous women all of whom I am so lucky and privileged to called friends. Special congratulations to the fabulous Jenna on her victory!!!
