USAT Nationals 2021 - Milwaukee, WI
Fun packed weekend! Back to back races - Olympic distance on Saturday - Sprint distance on Sunday. Challenging! Invigorating! Humbling! Great to see so many local friends and fellow triathletes! Special treat to see our dear friends and award winning athletes Betty & Ernie Janelle from ATL. HUGE congrats to our own local favorite Annamarie Strehlow Wielgos for the 1st and 2nd place finishes. She's the real the deal! Congrats to all who participated - and always HUGE THANKS to the volunteers! Thanks to all the friends who came out to watch and cheer!! It really means a lot! Always grateful for the strength and good heath to be able to do this stuff!! None of this really matters without the love and support from my family.
