Saturday morning, five multisport enthusiasts with ties to Coffee County competed in the Heels n’ Wheels for Megan’s House Triathlon/Duathlon in Waycross. Four individuals – Ashley Graves, Janet Bell, Angela Booth, and the writer of this story – raced the triathlon (.25 mile swim/13 mile bike/3 mile run) while Allison Bell participated in the duathlon (2 mile run/13 mile bike/3 mile run).
Four of the five participants won age group awards while Janet Bell, competing in her first triathlon, missed placing in the top three by just 24 seconds. Booth and Graves, competing in the same age group, finished second and third, respectively, while Allison Bell won her age group in the duathlon. Proceeds from the race benefitted Megan’s House for developmentally disabled children in Waycross.
