Gasparilla Race!

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Hello! I am writing to you from Tampa, FL. I am pleased to let you know that the race went really well. I was off on my targeted time by a bit, but since it is the first race of the season and our first time on the road in a while I am happy with the results. I finished 4th for the women. Diane Roy took first, Shirley Reilley took second and my teammate Jess Galli took third. There was over 40 wheelchair racers here, which is an excellent turn out given this is the revival of this race, it hadn't been in existence for over ten years. Thanks to all the organizers and Challenged Athletes of Florida things went very smoothly and I think everybody is looking forward to coming back next year. My time was 46:18 .

My arms seem to be doing well, let's hope that continues!

I am off now to go get lunch and to enjoy the 70 degree weather and the palm trees :-)
