A Weekend of Triumph and Support

Our triathlon team's outdoor season is well underway, and this past weekend was nothing short of remarkable. From empowering runs to challenging bike rides, and even a triumphant half marathon finish, our members showcased their determination and commitment to both personal goals and community support.

Empowering Run for Women

On Saturday, a dedicated group from our team participated in the Run to Empower Women Run demonstrating their strength and resilience. Special congratulations are in order for Ann-Marie Omar, who claimed an impressive 3rd place in her age group, along with Lara Winnemore and Julie Sauvé for their outstanding performances.

Pedalling for a Cause: Supporting CHEO

Sunday brought a different kind of challenge as our members braved the elements to support CHEO on a long bike ride. Battling rain, wind, and cold temperatures, some riders faced overwhelming conditions while others managed to conquer a 70km route. However, adversity struck with mechanical issues, like Kyle's seat post malfunction, and pace challenges that led some to turn around early.

Despite the obstacles, the spirit of solidarity prevailed. As we reflect on the challenges faced by the children and staff at CHEO every day, we're reminded of the purpose behind our efforts. This event wasn't just about the miles ridden; it was about showing support and making a difference. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed through donations.

A special shoutout goes to the brave souls who lined up at the start line on that cold, wet, and windy day:

  • Anne Taillon-Hobson
  • Julie Matte
  • Deborah Jackman
  • Joanne Bezzubetz
  • Sabrina Beauchamp
  • Kyle Romans
  • Coach Gabi
  • Coach Janet and her son Aethan

Triumph in Toronto: Sarv's Half Marathon

In addition to the team's collective achievements, we celebrate individual milestones, such as Sarv's impressive performance at the Toronto Half Marathon. Finishing with a personal best time, Sarv's dedication and hard work in our 70.3 Group Training Program shine brightly. As we look ahead to future challenges, including the upcoming race in Mt. Tremblant, we eagerly anticipate seeing Sarv's smiling face crossing the finish line once again.

This weekend encapsulated the essence of our triathlon team – perseverance, camaraderie, and a commitment to making a positive impact. As we continue our journey together, both on and off the racecourse, let's carry this spirit forward, inspiring others and pushing the boundaries of what's possible.

Congrats to all.
