Congrats Fit Nation iReport triathletes

Yesterday morning, the CNN Fit Nation Team completed their first triathlon in New York City. Each team member had his or her own reason for doing the triathlon, and the self-proclaimed “six-pack” of iReporters and CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta trained hard over the past six months to prepare for this event. Together the team swam one mile in the Hudson River, biked 25 miles along the West Side Highway and ran six miles though Central Park.

 

I know that it takes a lot of strength to power through these three events, as I was quickly reminded of that yesterday as I tackled my second triathlon. The fact that you continued on through the heat, fatigue, knee pains, cramps and whatever other obstacle you may have encountered is very inspiring.

 

Everyone at iReport is proud of your accomplishment and we hope that you feel the same. We want to hear all about it, so share your experience with iReport. What was the hardest part? Did you have anything weird happen? What would you have done differently?

 

Now it’s time for you to take a break and catch some much needed sleep, and good luck as you prepare to take on your next triathlons.

 

Congratulations triathletes:

Congratulations to all! It was an incredible thing you did especially in light of the trying weather conditions. Many were overcome and had to be hospitalized because of heat related illnesses. You guys amaze me.

 

I am eager to hear your stories. Will you be posting iReports about the event?
