You guys are wonderful. This group is a fantastic idea and a fabulous group of women. What a joy. Wish I could go on every trip, but will do as many as I can. Thank you for thinking of this, and for all you do for everyone. ~Jingles

It was a fabulous day! It is so wonderful to provide an opportunity for women to challenge themselves with an event such as this in a non-threatening way. I love being able to say "I did a triathlon!" The event was very thought-out, prepared-for and organized. Kudos to Carol and team! ~Jackie

I absolutely LOVED it!!! My natural competitive beast was soothed by the friendly & relaxed atmosphere! I was able to complete my tasks & bask in the beauty of it all!!! Trailbound Trips does it AGAIN!!!! ~Jewell

It was SIMPLY THE BEST feeling of accomplishment. Shared with a great group of THE BEST new & old friends & "family" in the world. ~Joanie

Exercise, competition, encouragement, laughter - what could be healthier for mind, body and soul? I loved it! ~Margaret C.

I felt energized and invigorated for days after. I know I’ve thanked you for putting the triathlon together, but it was really fabulous. Even my husband continues to step aside to let me pass; I tell him he no longer needs to bow when I enter the room. ~Margaret M.

THANK YOU for just providing the opportunity to push ourselves! I love being surrounded by strong women who model great qualities I can strive for -- while smiling and laughing all the while!!! Thanks again!! ~Pam

I want to thank you so much for the opportunity we all had yesterday to test our strength and our abilities to hike, kayak, and bike in four hours or less. We all were pleased with testing ourselves and that we did pretty well. There was such a sense of fellowship; we were all cheering for each other. It was a day we will all remember. ~Peg

So much fun yesterday! My husband says there is a problem, however: I am refusing to change out of my triathlon shirt! Now on day two............ ~Nerissa

Just want to say what a great day it was!! Thanks for planning such a fun event- as always it was a great time with great women! Thanks for all your hard work and preparation! ~Hiker
