With such a large number competing at the Top of Delaware maybe someone would like to organize a tailgate. I will most likely be there to cheer everyone on but probably won't be staying for tailgating. Contact me if you want to help out and/or transport tents, table, grill and other supplies.

How to Sight in Triathlon Swimming
Click here for the video. Very basic stuff but often a challenge when surrounded by hundreds of others. That's why it's a good idea to pick some landmarks on shore beyond the buoys.

Upcoming 5K
Please consider running in the 7th Annual Nun Run on September 14. More information can be found on their website at
