First Olympic race of the season and the NUTTs brought the heat! Literally, the water was around 77 degrees and it got up the low 90s during the day. Northeastern swarmed Max Performance's Mass State Tri bringing 13 racers including Smo, Shane, Kelly, Marissa, Deanna, Pattie, Zach WOOlever, Alex, Alyssa, Clayton, Katie Jinks, Owen, and Don. Everyone had amazing performances despite the heat! Alyssa came in first in age group and Katie, Smo, and Marissa came in 1st, 2nd, and 4th in their age group respectively. Alex wins most terrifying moment of the day when he collapsed at the finish... no big deal, he handled it like a champ. And Don wins the award for general awesomeness for high-fiving teammates during the run, which was an out and back, as well as rocking cornrows (which Smo and I decided are now the new mandatory team hairstyle for collegiate races). Also, a huge shout out to Aliana who volunteered for the NUTTs but isn't actually on the team... she is just an enthusiastic NU student with a lot of school pride haha.
