Alexis and Cat interview at the Scope it Out

Link to Video:

Every year our Triathlon Team participates in a race called the Scope it Out 5k in Washington, DC.  As a team, we dress up in red shirts and red beanie caps that say “Catch the Polyp” in huge white billboard letters.  When we run the race – we are “all over the place” with these billboards in bright red shirts and caps – thanks to the diversity of our team.  Yes we are an adult, group triathlon training program – but we still like to play like children (while also giving back to our community)!
