Hard Work Pays Off - Cohasset Triathlon 2011



Since posting this, we lost our dear friend Caren.  Caren passed away suddenly in October, leaving her husband and two young children Rylee and Reid.  We are a deeply saddened by the loss of this young, beautiful and inspiring person.  The girls (the honey badgers!), along with Caren's husband Brian, will compete in Cohasset Triathlon 2012 in Caren's honor.

I got up early this morning to witness some greatness.  I went down to Sandy Beach in Cohasset, MA to cheer on my amazing friends as they embarked on their first triathlon.  I know first hand how hard these girls trained.  I started training with them months ago but sustained an injury (40 is tough!) and couldn't bounce back in time to train properly. 

From our first 5K back in November, these girls -Maureen, Heather, Donna, Joanna and Caren -trained their butts off.  Today is proof of their hard work and determination.  They are truly an inspiration.  I am beyond proud of them. 

Here are a bunch of pictures of the "Bad **s Honey Badgers" (if you don't know what I am talking about go to YouTube and search "honey badger" (it's hilarious) you will see why they have dubbed themselves the bad **s honey badgers:

Maureen and her cousin Joanna getting ready to jump in for their .25 mile swim

 Maureen, Joanna & Donna

 Heather gives us a wave before the big plunge.

Maureen says bring it on!

 I love this picture...Maureen giving her uncle a high-five before running into the ocean.

 There goes Caren!

And they're off...

 Heather coming out of the water...woo hoo

 Caren coming out of water

Maureen, you are awesome!

and then they were off on a 12 mile bike ride...

After the bike they ran 3.2 miles...

Joanna!

 Heather...looking like she does this everyday!  You go girl.

 Go Mo!

 Caren at the finish line.

 Maureen and Donna at the finish line!!Donna is a true "honey badger"...she fell off her bike, REALLY hurt herself and still finished...amazing!!!

Donna hope you are doing okay!  Love you girls, you are amazing!  I think I'll try going for a run tonight ;)

In October of this past year we lost our dear friend Caren.  She passed away suddenly, leaving her husband and two young children Riley and Reid.  We are a deeply saddened by the loss of this young, beautiful and inspiring person.  The girls (the honey badgers!) along with Caren's husband Brian will be participating in  Cohasset Triathlon 2012 in Caren's honor.
