Trek Women
April 26, 2009



Out of running, biking and swimming, I like biking the best, swimming second and running is definitely last.  I have tried to love it for years but I just can't get into it.  It doesn't excite, inspire or move me BUT if I want to do triathlons I have to run.

This is the second year I have done the Women's 5K by the Bay in Havre de Grace, MD.  The run is along the bay and is a celebration of women, running and fitness not to mention freakin' beautiful.  A portion of the proceeds are donated to local women's charities and its always powerful and ultra inspiring to be surrounded by 400 women.

PS - I forgot to mention that all 5 of us were riding WSD Trek bikes!
