As an aside, among the year’s notable events were the Elite Team’s fine sports socials, Ron Benedict’s winter spins, Kate Ayoub, David Jiang, Adriana Anderson, & Tuan Nguyen’s PeasantMan Tri, & Alisson Nordberg’s Gtown bric-nic.
The best area endurance performers in the three tri legs included:

Biking, Bryan Frank, David Jiang biking to SavageMan weekend.
Swimming, club partner Denis Crean swimming from Chain Bridge to Mt. Vernon
And a Goat (not G.O.A.T.): The city’s Park Dept., for missing its two-year deadine to reconstruct the Hains Pt. pool
