Ina put on her first race in 1998, an event where there were even lounge chairs for the participants in the transition area of that McLean race! Over the years the races have grown a lot in frequency and number of participants, and have outgrown the lounge chairs…now replaced with more traditional bike racks. Tri It Now’s positive outlook, experience and programming has helped many a “newbie” and veteran alike.
