Getting fit is more fun with family! Team Paragon had two father-son pairs racing together the past two weekends. On Sunday, August 5, Coach Mark's father and brother--Vince and Joel Saroni--competed in the Rockwall Kiwanis Tri Rock Sprint Triathlon. Joel placed 3rd in his Age Group! Joel finished with a time of 1:49:06, and his dad finished in 1:43:47. Vince placed 12th in his Age Group.
Another Team Paragon father-son duo, Carlos and Nicolas Torres, also raced together this past weekend at the District 4 Fit Family Challenge Finale 5k. From Carlos, "The race had some really nice hills and a varied terrain. Nicolas ran a 6:57 pace and finished in 21:33. I couldn’t keep up with him and ran a 7:04 pace and finished in 21:58. Fun times!” The competition was deep, yet Carlos still placed 2nd in his age group! The finale race was held at Pearsall Park, and 743 competitors finished.
Grab your young ones, your spouse, your parents, your siblings - get out and do something active together!
