A magical triathlon


To the Editor:

Wonders never cease. If you had told me that last Saturday I would participate in the annual Live Love Tri winter triathlon at the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard, I would have said, “Not this gal.” My friend Joanne said, “Let’s do it,” and here I am. I lived to tell the tale.

It was a magical event, filled with joy and enthusiasm.The entire staff put their hearts and souls into making this event a 10.  Yes, there were the usual items, shirts, snacks, and raffles, but mostly there was commitment – the commitment of the Y staff to provide an amazing, safe indoor event for all who dared to challenge themselves.

An amateur accessible triathlon of  25 minutes of each discipline, swim, bike, and run — it was wonderful!

Bravo to each of the YMCA staff members. You are a great community.
