For 6-Pack, a landmark day

They did it! CNN's Sixpack,  Joaquin Brignoni, Stasia Cirricione, Kendrick Henley, Nina Lovel, Kas Seerla, and Scott Zahn,  are officially triathletes after successfully completing the Nautica New York City Triathlon on Sunday, as part of the Fit Nation 2011 Triathlon Challenge.

The adventure began bright and early when the group met at 3:40 a.m. to be shuttled over to the race site. It was pouring rain and a little chilly but nothing could dampen the morning's excitement. After a delayed race start, the Sixpack jumped in to the Hudson around 6:40 a.m. All finished the race, with Joaquin Brignoni coming in first for the 6-Pack.

As part of the Triathlon Challenge, each person teamed up with a triathlon coach in his or her hometown. Several of those coaches joined the crew for their race in New York, including Mary Ann Sedor, Keither Klebacha, Dawn McPherson, Regan Kust, and Corey Kunzer.

The day was not without some tragedy and near misses, however. Kust was involved in a bike wreck along the West Side Highway and had to have several stitches to her wrist. According to Bill Burke, the race director of the NYC Triathlon, two devastating incidents occurred during the swim portion of the race. A 64-year-old male athlete died and a 40-year-old female remains in critical condition at a local New York City hospital. The cause of both incidents is unknown at this time.

Other members of the CNN Fit Nation team who completed the  race include Anthony Fox, John Bonifield, William Hudson, Trish Henry, Caleb Hellerman, David Martin, Tim Langmaid, Charlie Moore, Roni Selig, and Jeff Kepnes.

    Howdy, I believe your site could possibly be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, great blog!

    After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment. There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

    The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not fail me as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read, but I really believed you would have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
