On Sunday morning, 130 participants swam, biked, and ran their way to the finish line for the annual Makin’ It Happen triathlon, which is held annually on Mother’s Day.
For Steph Hall, crossing this finish line also crossed off a goal she set earlier this year.
“I’m turning 40 this year and I wanted to do something at the beginning of the year to sign up to do something that was physically challenging, but also mentally challenging,” said Hall.
The mother of two said completing her first triathlon was an amazing feeling.
“This race is geared towards beginners, absolutely. It’s an unintimidating environment for people to come out when they’ve never done a race before,” said Tammy Fleming, one of the organizers of the Makin’ It Happen event.
For Dana Kripiki, that couldn’t be any more true.
