I just wanted to write to alert you of a fledgling race in Traverse City on AUGUST 23. It is called the... wait for it...
It is put on by Endurance Evolutions and more information can be found on www.enduranceevolution.com
This race offers an unparalleled course through a ridiculously gorgeous part of Traverse City that few get to see. Think vineyards and orchards. It also features a protected swim through bowers harbor, a part of Grand Traverse Bay. You can do the Olympic distance or the sprint distance. They specialize in ensuring a wonderful experience for both seasoned vets and people new to the sport.
The reason I am so excited about this race is because the former MSU triathlon club President, Mr. Eric Tingwall, and my former Spanish teacher, El Senor Joel Gaff, are the race directors. They have serious experience running 3 5k's and about 4-5 triathlons while we were at Michigan State together and both had a huge hand in legitimizing and truly establishing the club.
Go out and support this race. I promise you won't regret it. These guys have done unbelievable work in the past and this will be no different.
