This past Sunday, the Live Your Life relay team had the honor of racing in the 10th Annual YWCA Women’s Triathlon. This race is truly unique. It’s the only all-women triathlon in Minnesota and includes women from age 11 – 85 years of age. To learn more about this race, please visit the YWCA Women’s Triathlon website: www.ywcampls.org/events/signature_events/womens_triathlon.
The Live Your Life relay team included Dr. Eva Norman, our founder and physical therapist who completed the 500-yard swim portion, Rachel Wieneke, our speech therapist who biked the 15.5 cycling segment and Erin, our personal trainer who completed the 5k run portion of the relay. We trained, practiced and were ready to complete on race day. We are excited to announce that we earned 3rd place for overall Relay Team! Congrats to all the women who competed and inspired us along the beautiful course at Lake Nokomis.
