Congratulations to Melissa for being named ‘Triathlete of the Month’ for August!
I've seen huge improvements with Melissa since her training has begun with the Blanchard Park Y Triathlon Team. Melissa has been working hard on her run form and because of this she has been shaving off crazy time. Melissa is an animal out there when she trains in the pool as well while she is gliding smoothly in the water and improving in time here as well. She just completed her first 'Olympic' distance triathlon which has qualified her for the Age Group Nationals in Alabama (along with her son Erik). We're very proud of her. Whether she's out playing with her 'Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra' as a violist or teaching young students music at Walker Elementary School, she may be their 'Teacher of the Year' and a two-time 'Disney Teacherrific Winner' but she's also our triathlete of the month! We know we can count on her support and love for our Blanchard Park Y Triathlon Team. Way to go Melissa! Thank you for being you and for being on our team.
