I found this definition on the Google today:
The Fourth Annual Sunset Drive Kids Triathlon occurred on Saturday, and the TMT News Team was there to cover every moment, from pre-race donuts to post-race watermelon. Nearly 50 kids swam in the bay, rode three Sunset Drive loops, and ran one loop on a glorious summer morning. And as hard as I tried on Saturday, August 9th, I could not find one mediocre triathlete. Every triathlete was simply awesome.
The Race Directors Tim and Susan Terranova started the race four years ago in the hopes that they would make piles of money and become filthy rich. Plus, they had this hideous thing in their house, and thought that if they made it into a trophy that someone would finally take it.
Are you sure you want to bring this home?
Their initial greedy rotten intentions proved fruitless. The race is free and open to any kid who wants to participate, which everyone knows is a profit margin killer. In fact, they lost a lot of money this weekend just buying donuts to ensure full media coverage.
The powdered sugar down the front of my shirt served nicely as my press pass.
Too many words will spoil this post. Today it’s all about the pictures. We here at TMT want you to feel like you were right there, in the middle of all the action:
Wait. Just. One. Minute. Sponsored by Miller Lite? I didn’t see any Miller Lites…
OTHER COOL PICS!!!
Assistant Race Director. Holding a clipboard makes you look important. I need a clipboard.
Pre-race sign in.
As you can see, everyone had a great day. Lots of smiles, proud mamas and papas, and plenty of watermelon and Hershey bars.
(While the kids were amazing, the parents were equally impressive. There was no pressure to complete any part of race. Don’t want to swim? Okay! Go hop on your bike. Don’t want to ride three loops? That’s fine! Parents today get a (deservedly) bad rap for their sports insanity. The Sunset Drive parents keep it real. It makes for a much more pleasant day.)
But wait! There’s more! I chose a few, select triathletes to interview before and after the race. I picked the ones who looked “elite”. Who were mean and lean and ready to battle. Mostly, I picked the ones who wouldn’t make fun of my hairbrush/microphone.
Asking the hard-hitting questions. Just what you expect from the TMT News Team.

Many thanks to the Terranovas and Braces for inviting me to the party. I’ll be there next year, hopefully with a real microphone!
