3 Crusty Barnacles compete at Marshfield/Duxbury Tri, Jul 31, 2016

Susan McGinnis, Trish Berube & Vic Lanzillotti hit the waters this morning around 7:30 at Duxbury beach.  The run out and back along the beach became adventurous as the tide rolled in and the hard packed sand disappeared and we were running in water or up along the slippery rocks.

Each CBer had a unique division placement, all good for some cocktail party banter – perhaps.

Trish ended 4th in her division. Yeah Trish!  Had she not stopped for a glass of wine in Transition 1, she would have medalled.  Not pictured below cos she left early to go walk her dog.

Susan took the gold for not only 1st in her division, but also for last!  (Now…how  is this so?  Think about it.)

Vic, ignominiously borrowing Susan’s medal for achieving last in his over 40+ division.


A fun, flat and very  pretty race!

Mattapoisett Tri, Sunday July 10

Fun time at the Mattapoisett sprint Tri this week.   Three CBs entered and finished the race, with both Missey and Trish lapping and beating Vic and his entire age group.

Water temps were 71 degrees!  Missey took 1st in her age group.

Mark Keup, owner of Nor’easter Surf Shop, was there. He also  medaled.  We all went to breakfast afterward at a local diner.

Fortunately, T-storm forecasts were wrong.  It was overcast and hence a perfect event day.

As pictured, Vic got center podium for ignominiously taking a Left turn out of the transition area for the run stage.  The rest of the field had rightly gone Right.

We all agreed that Missey needs a new Tri outfit — perhaps with logo endorsement patches. Her current outfit is too stodgy.

Also, we also agreed Vic needs a new bike.  So does Trish!

Next year, same event!

Missey & George’s Post Cohasset Tri Brunch, June 26

Here are some photos from another great Sunday brunch at Missey’s.  George did another great job preparing some wonderful eats and great Sangria, the latter of which ran out way too early.

Missey showing off her incorrect tattoo number, suggesting a whole new meaning of fashion  for “X-out.”  She likely will break her endorsement contract with Building 19.IMG_0866Mags and Trish, smiling sis-tahs in constant Tri training.  (Notice Patrick in background with a beer, still recovering from his rope-swing-Tarzan-imitation-attempt, which resulted in an accident and surgery.  Tarzan.  Really.)


“Up against the wall, everybody!”  The new stone wall below was specifically designed for such events.  Not pictured, Diane, who was working the iPhone.  (Photo Property of Lady Di Kennedy Productions, Limited – very!)

Special details:  Richard Alemian, now understanding why we do Tri’s — the After Party! Patrick with beer bottle, again.  Missey showing her X’d-Out number — Triple AAA rating, at heart. Rachel donning what is now pre-Yoga class apparel we must all add to our wardrobes (yes, she has a whole new line).  Susan McGinnis, glowing from having medalled in her age group.  George muttering to himself, “Will they ever leave?”IMG_0868.JPG

Susan McGinnis, number 993 and medalist.  (Vic the has-been, wearing a previous year CohTri T-shirt.  It’s all about the T-shirt, isn’t it?)


Susan doing the push-up squeeze to show us how well intellectually endowed she is! She applied her tattoo number on her left arm — upside down!  Yes, 366!  Go figure.  (She’s on her way to a halfway house before long. One of us has to let her know.)


CONGRATS to all you finishers!
