Hey Greg, I don’t know if you’ve ever completed an Olympic distance triathlon, but my experience was nothing but positive. I was able to complete it at a comfortable pace of 3:23:33 and still have energy to attend a birthday party later that day. Coming from the CrossFit community, I only have great experiences at events and the community at this triathlon was very welcoming, supportive, and impressively fast at covering distance. It’s a great weekend event for any CrossFitter trying to test his feet in some less known waters. I am so honored to be a part of the community you helped build Greg. I feel like I couldn’t be in a better spot at this time in my life. My ultimate goal in CrossFit is to stand on the shoulder’s of giants like you, and always continue to raise the bar for health in our community.” – Nick Pappas
