Bella debut NCAA triathlon race!

The past year has been anything but normal, March 13th 2020 a full blown pandemic happened with COVID 19 and the world has ever changed! ...

My daughter Bella was a senior in high school then, and preparing to move off to college in the fall and compete in NCAA triathlon for Daemen College. Well the fall season got cancelled, then the spring semester got pushed back for when the kids came to campus after winter break, triathlon practices got delayed, then happened and then finally on a 10 day notice the Daemen triathlon team got word they can travel and leave the state of New York to compete in the USA Triathlon NCAA regional event at Hyco lake in Roxboro, NC. 

With about 10 days notice, Coach Metz had to go from easy practices just keeping the girls fit, to now I need to get them race ready! Then the travel piece, since the state and school have strict travel rules, things were pretty last minute travel went from flying in a day or so early, to boarding a coach bus at 6am Friday morning, driving 12 hours all day blowing around getting motion sick, arriving at 6pm the night before an 11am race, missing the rules meeting and doing a shake out on the course to basically just eat dinner go to bed and leave for the race venue at 8am the next morning.
