🖤🖤🖤 Nearly 100 youth & junior TRIathletes have experienced our triathlon coached programs since we opened our doors!🖤🖤🖤Each athlete showing up as a unique individual. Some shy, some spirited, some fast and fit, some finding their stride, some confident, some unsure, some tall, some tiny & mighty, some advanced, some beginners, some already TRIathletes, some becoming one. Those moments when you pause from the coaching and just observe them being who they are...they are every bit beautiful humans. 🖤🖤🖤Grateful to serve their body, mind and spirit through the sport of Triathlon. 🖤🖤🖤 #beautifulhumans#triathlonkids#humanspirit#youbeyou#inspireothers#shineon
We find our inspiration from athletes like 81 year old Molly Hayes. She is a Swim IT lover and uses it for all training and USAT races. If she doesn't motivate you, we aren't sure what will. #TheSwimIT#DailyMotivation#Triathlon#USAT
Just got back early this morning from covering #Florence in N.C. as part of a drone team with @jjwilsonfoto. The two #drone photos here were made by us, the rest I made from the earth’s surface; all for @usatoday Network. Captions below. Wishing them strength on the long road ahead.
Homes on the Wood family's property are seen severely flooded Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018, in the aftermath of Florence in Linden, N.C. Dale Wood, who has lived on the property about 47 years, and his wife, Angie Wood, said their home (pictured) was also flooded by the nearby Little River after Hurricane Matthew, but not nearly to current levels.

Downed power lines and trees continue to threaten safety Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, along with inevitable flooding in the town, during the massive storm that began as Hurricane Florence.
Damon Jones, 55, who has lived in the same home a block away from Blounts Creek on South Cool Spring Street in Fayetteville, N.C., for the last three years, walks home Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018, to weather the fallout from Florence with Iris Engle Jones, 49. Their home flooded during Hurricane Matthew two years ago and they needed to be rescued by boat. They said they relocated several times already for Florence, but found themselves at home once again for a potential flooding.
Tropical Storm Florence and rising waters from the Cape Fear River contribute to flooding at Cross Creek Linear Park on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018, in Fayetteville, N.C.
People travel by kayak on the flooded Cross Creek near Festival Park in Fayetteville, N.C., on Sept. 17, 2018, as the rain from Florence continues to flood areas tied to the Cape Fear River.
The Cape Fear River in Fayetteville, N.C., rises Monday, Sept. 17, 2018, towards a record-setting crest during fallout from Florence.

The DUDES would like to welcome Jack Felix @jackhhi to the squad 🙌🏼🙌🏼.
Jack ran division 1 cross country at the university of Tennessee and then at Clemson (which means there are now 2 former tigers on the squad #allin ) before turning his focus to triathlon. He spent some time with the CRP @usatcrp and is now on the Queens University triathlon team while studying for his MBA.
Jack is currently training in Charlotte with the Queens team and fellow dude @justin_lippert but will be joining the full time DTE in the future.
Jack has never lost a turkey trot in his life, is a female on Strava (holds every QOM on Hilton Head Island), has a self proclaimed FTP of 669 watts, has 8 screws in his left leg, and had to fight off a kangaroo using his bicycle on multiple occasions while training in Australia.

Scott Green and Sonja Kent both took the overall W at the TDD Triathlon last weekend. Firm Racing has been a huge supporter of triathlon in the Northeast with their races over the years and we were happy to have some racers out there for their final race as a company!
This girl never stops working! 👊 Alyssa set a PR of 2:27 at ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Australia this past weekend! She placed 4th on Team USA and is ranked 30th in the world for 20-24 year olds! She is so humble, and we are beyond grateful for her inspiring attitude along with the grace she posses as a teammate. Congrats, we are so proud!!
Worked his tail off for the last (almost handful of years) to achieve goals that included making it to the World Championships and having a performance indicative of his fitness.
This last weekend it all came together with some lifetime best splits coming at his biggest race. WAY TO PEAK, @danoryall and congratulations on your HUGE accomplishment!!! #teambbmc#usat#coachbrag#triathlon
