Whether youre a newbie or a wily veteran of triathlons, as you face Long Island Sound and wait for the starting gun to sound, youre thinking, Why am I doing this? I could be home sleeping or having a leisurely Sunday breakfast. You emerge from the .5 mile swim, jump on your bike for 13.5 miles and the next thing you know, youre crossing the finish line of the Hammerfest Triathlon after completing the 3.7-mile run. Exuberance, satisfaction, confidence and the elation only a triathlons fatigue can bring. But best of all, your efforts have helped Brians Hope get just a little closer to fulfilling its mission of stopping the progression of ALD.And so it goes and has gone for some 20 years now the Hammerfest Triathlon staged in September at the beautiful Owenego Club located in Branford, Connecticut. As you mill about, enjoying the post-race barbecue and talking with fellow athletes and friends, you just cant help thinking that at the heart of all this is Brian Kelleys courage and inspiration, and his familys unwavering commitment to help others afflicted by ALD, to stop its progression and provide hope to all it befalls. And your participation in Hammerfest embodies that commitment and spreads the ripples of that hope just a little bit further outward. See you at the starting line.NOTE: Field is limited to 300.
