I'm a little late on this post but I think it's worth talking about.
Let me start by saying, I am not a race photographer. There are plenty of good photographers who do that sort of thing in the Madison area.
I am a triathlete (although I still have a hard time calling myself one). Not of the elite status, mind you. But I've finished some tough races and I just bought a sweet new tri bike from Trek, so I guess it's official. I'm a triathlete.
So when Prairie Athletic Tri Team hosted the Tri 4 Schools kids triathlon a few couple years ago it made sense that I volunteer to take photos. And I'm so glad I did!
Tri 4 Schools is "a non-profit organization in Dane County that uses the sports of swimming, biking, and running as platforms to get kids active and fight childhood obesity. Events and programs aim to teach children about setting and achieving goals, fitness, nutrition, sportsmanship and self-confidence" to kids 14 and under.
