Double Tri-anasaurous Rex Attack: Rev 3 Quassy

And we were BACK!

I finished post planning at school, ran home, threw some stuff in the car, and the road trip began!

We were heading north! To Middlebury, CT to race in Rev3's olympic relay, half iron relay, and George was racing the Aquabike!

I might lose my friend jill over this photo, but I really think that it displays how we were feeling about Saturday's race. 

It was raining, we were cold, we were feeling a little iffy, but you know what? She put on that wetsuit, we raced, and we got second place in the relay division!

And then Sunday came......

Sunday was the day of the technical issues for our family!

First, our car got stuck in the mud. And we just left it, and went to race...

Photo: Hmmmmm, what about this car made the parking attendant think that we should park in the mud?

Then, I had some issues with my chain and had to get off my bike twice. George had TWO flats IN transitions! Yikes!

All in all though, everyone had a great, and fun race! We all put in an awesome effort, and we were so glad to have done it!

And then our car was still stuck in the mud. Thanks to some REALLY nice people, we were able to get it out, get coated in mud (at one point, George was face first in the mud!), and then we drove that beauty to Manhattan to have dinner with some friends!

Luckily for us it rained, which we thought would help that car. No luck. But it did cause a double rainbow!

So we had a great dinner in Manhattan, and drove straight home through the night!!!

What an adventure of a weekend!!


  1. I heard rumors about that pic of Jill and it TOTALLY lived up to the stories.


  2. haha! I was wondering if you guys were able to get the car out of the mud without a tow truck!! You should have taken pics of the muddy George! So great to see you guys! Good luck on RAAM!!

  3. Bahahaha... that car in the mud picture makes the story even funnier! I still want to see one of the guy who's marriage you might save by posting it! :)

    Congrats to Team "you girls rock". :)

  4. Congrats on the races! That picture of your car sums up exactly what I felt like on the run!

  5. That photo - one of my most photogenic moments ever! ha ha I love the look on the guys face behind me... like WHAT is she doing???!?!
