Crystal Crosses the Finish Line

Congratulations Crystal! Saturday Crystal successfully conquered the Strawberry Fields Triathlon in 1:28.58 hours and is now a Triathlete! You can check out some more pictures in our online photo album.

The most exciting part of the day was during the swimming portion in the ocean. The surf was very rough with waves breaking way over the heads of the swimmers standing in the ocean attempting to work out to the buoys marking the course. There was also a lot of debris in the ocean, large branches, sticks, etc. In Crystal?s group half were unable to break through the surf on the first attempt. Crystal was able to push through but not after being pummeled by two large waves. On the way in she was caught in another large wave containing debris which caught her up and rolled her over in the water. She was able to get out, looking a bit tired and stressed, but alive.

Crystal had set a goal to complete the even in 1:20 hours but she did it in 1:28! She was also able to raise $2000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! While running the race Crystal wore the names of Doyle Griffith and Barbara Keep, two of her friends who have been battling with cancer. Crystal wasn?t the only winner this weekend.
