Swim, Run…Here I come!

By Michael Telpner The first race I ever participated in was the MSC Toronto Island Triathlon. I think I gave high fives to every volunteer and race official I passed.

Angela Lilly – Including Triathlon with Life

It’s time I share some reflection pieces about #MSCWelland and #MSCGravenhurst race experiences as I head into #MSCKTown and more.

But being the first race of […]

If she can do it, you can too.

By Angela Giddens If she can do it, you can too.   These are the words I heard this past January while running a half marathon in Florida. I was wearing a half ironman race shirt and from behind me I heard a man say to the woman running with him. “Look honey, she ran a […]
