NYC Triathlon - Go Kate! Go Libby!

Update: Kate and Libby both finished with great times! Congratulations to both of you! View the results at the tracking site. And, check back in two days for a 30-second clip of each athlete crossing the finish line.

Kate and Libby will be competing in the upcoming NYC Triathlon this Sunday, July 22. The race consists of a 1500 m swim in the Hudson, a 40 km bike through Manhattan and the Bronx and a 10 km run through the Park. The Finish line is on Dead Road (great name), just west of the bandshell on the 72nd Street Transverse in Central Park.

Good luck to both of you! We're rooting for you even if we can't be there in person to yell out your names :)

The Floating Pool is in business

The NYTimes CityRoom blog chronicled the well-received opening (and re-opening) of the barge pool floating on the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. Hope some of you get to check it out soon.
