Atlanta, GA, April 06, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- On April 7, 2013 a team of Metro Atlanta Triathlon athletes will fulfill their goals to race in the Nautica Miami South Beach Triathlon. Here’s their story.
Less than five months ago a small team formed and committed to train and participate in the 2013 Nautica South Beach Triathlon for various reasons. Triathlete Team Member Leslie Moore, a Clayton State University graduate and former cheerleader “wanted to inspire others to face their fears by stepping outside of their comfort zone.” Triathlete Team Member Dawn Myers, Hofstra University graduate and New York native “sought a new fitness strategy.” Triathlon interval and cross training was the right fit for many members. Other members sought to share their love for the triathlon competition with other Metro Atlanta residents.
Team Founder, Michael K. Bell, an avid triathlete says, “Overall, I am very pleased with the conditioning and mental toughness of our team members.” Bell continues, “My intent for this group is to increase triathlon awareness, expand diversity as well as raise the bar for a healthy Henry County.”
