We have a guest blogger today! Sierra competed in the Ranger Tri a few weeks ago. It was her first triathlon and she did a great job! From a parent's perspective, it was a well organized and safe triathlon for even inexperienced kids to participate in. The race benefits the Texas School for the Deaf and the race director designs and makes the medals and trophies himself with the end result being unique rewards with some cool symbolism behind them. I would definitely be happy to attend this race again next year and recommend it to others. It's always nice to hear the athlete perspective though and I was curious what Sierra would have to say in her own words, so I asked if she'd write up a race report for the blog. She picked the pictures and the rest of this post is straight from her!
