HCBMWR Helps Out at Life Time Tri CapTex

Date posted: 5/28/2015

Five members of the HCBMWR met at 6AM for an early Memorial Day breakfast, then helped out with the Life Time Tri CapTex held in downtown Austin.

As usual, the riders carried race officials on multiple laps around the bike course as they watched for rule violations and safety issues.

Of special interest to our riders was the paratriathlete category, as this was the national championship event. Watching these special athletes overcome tremendous obstacles to compete at this level is truly inspirational. Seeing a runner with no legs run a 5K after biking 20K will give anyone pause to consider their perspective on day-to-day life.

Special thanks to Jeff Acklen for spearheading the club's effort. Along with Jeff, others who participated were Joe Aaron, Mark Johnson, Hub Helm, and Jim Emmons.
