This is the second year Ashley, my wife, has competed in, and finished with a greatly improved time, the New York City Triathlon. This is also the second year she has had me as her personal photographer / pit crew / and cheer captain and I had to share some highlight shots of the day!
For the last two years, Ashley has trained with Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, a group which trains together in an effort to raise money for cancer research. It’s a wonderful organization, and if you have ever contemplated training for one of these amazing feats of endurance, I totally recommend you check them out. The sense of community that comes with being a part of TNT is worth the price of admission, and raising money for such a worthy cause at the same time is bonus. Feel free to check out Ashley’s fundraising page here.
Congratulations to everyone who participated! Finishing a triathlon is such an amazing accomplishment, especially in the heat and humidity we had today!

This was Ashley on the bike portion of the race.
I knew she was doing fine because she had enough energy to blow me a kiss and keep on riding!
You can see the great blog he and his wife Jessica put together chronicling their preparation for the race here.
