On July 29th, 2012, Coach Karen Mackin raced in the Wildcat Sprint Triathlon held in Lowell, MA.  She struggled a little getting into a rhythm on the swim portion of the race but manage a lightning fast transition and settled into a steady hard pace on the bike.  The run was when she realized she may have won because it was an out and back course and she had not seen any other woman (and quite frankly very few men!) heading back for the finish by the time she turned around!  Turns out she placed 1st overall among the women and 5th overall including the men!
