Great press in the Shreveport Times today!! I am especially excited about River Cities Triathlon because I will be seeing so many friends there. My college roommate from too many years ago lives there. I haven't seen her in about five years. She is part of the reason I chose this particular race. Kari, my "twin separated at birth", that I met in Texas is coming. Sargent John Lee of the Highland Park DPS and his firefighter buddies are coming to race and raise money for my campaign... sounds more like a party than a triathlon, if you ask me.
There will be a "first" at this race too. I am going to participate in the expo. Relentlessly acquiring about $2000 worth of donations of gear and tri stuff, I will be hosting a raffle at the two day expo. All proceeds go to OCRF but more important, I want the opportunity to meet the athletes and talk about signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. This information is vital, can save a life and is why I race. So counting down the days until Louisiana, state #29.... next week.
