As some of you know, triathlon season is in full swing and Grapevine’s own event, the Paddle, Pedal and Pound the Pavement will be held on June 4. The event begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Dove Pool and ends at Cross Timbers winery. Registration is currently $65 and the event typically sells out at a maximum of 175 participants. This is a nice manageable size and a great event to start with if you are new to triathlons (Of course, hopefully if you want to register for this event, you have already been training!).
It’s great fun to come out and watch and cheer on the participants as well. It is a sprint distance event (300 meter swim, 20K bike ride, 6K run), so it should be over in between 1 and 2 hours. A short time to give up from a Saturday to show some love to local athletes. Trust me, when you are in a race, it makes all the difference to have someone cheering for you when you are tired and sore and ready to be done.
