Over the weekend a collection of brave souls from Buffalo headed over to Seneca Lake to compete in the Mini-mussel triathlon! Ellie, Miranda and Hannah formed up the Buffalo Gal’s relay team, while myself, Brindy and Alex competed in the full sprint triathlon. It was an awesome weekend full of friends, racing, wineries and competitive card games.

We all did well, despite the blazing hot sun and high humidity. Here are my splits comparing Tri-in-the-buff and Minimussel.

I had a MUCH better swim this race, almost laughably so. I did have a complete melt-down on the run though, and really, really struggled. I think the heat caught up to me and I just didn’t have anything left in the tank. Work to do!

Thank you to everyone who raced with us, and to all the volunteers who made that race a blast. We had a ton of a fun, and we are already considering on doing it again next year.
