Race Report: Chris Cassey Indoor Triathlon

I just wanted to thank you for putting on such an awesome event. I attended your inaugural indoor triathlon after one of your members, Amy, shared it on Facebook. Myself and my fellow IronCanuck, Kristin, were quick to jump on board.

I should start by saying I DO NOT drive into Toronto, ever. But being Sunday morning I managed ok and was shocked to find Free parking close by. We arrived with way more time then we needed. Check in was friendly and quick. And I was super excited to get a race belt, totally unexpected!

We were in wave 5. By the start of our wave there was a small delay but that is to be expected as the growing pains of an inaugural event. I loved that I wasn't responsible for tracking any of my own stats. Volunteers were at each venue to do that which was great. The bike was quite possibly my favorite event. Riding my own bike on a trainer, as opposed to a spin bike was awesome!! I really liked the way everything was set up on the screen in front of us. I was a bit oblivious until I heard Kristin mutter about hills.....and then I really started to study what was in front of me. My first time with any sort of power trainer and I loved it!  The track was......short. But I'm not super fast so I felt like I was really covering some ground :). Which at the end, it turned out I had!!!  I wish we could have stayed for the after party but there were large plates of bacon calling our names.

I would love to see you do this event again. I will definitely encourage all my tri friends to participate.

Thanks so much

Chris
