Terry Drew and her twin daughters, Samantha and Lauren of Oak Hill, Virginia, will be competing this year in the 13th Annual Luray Sprint Triathlon relay on August 19th. Last year Terry competed for the first time at the Luray Triathlon and thought the race was very well organized and really enjoyed the excitement surrounding the race. She and her husband came to Luray a day early and enjoyed the town and local breweries. Terry can’t wait to come back this year with her daughters so they can experience it with her. “My goal for this triathlon is to have my girls enjoy the excitement before, during, and after the race. I want to see their smiles and expressions as they experience the adrenaline rush a triathlete gets as they compete in their leg of the race.”
Terry started running and did her first race in 1997 in Syracuse, New York when her girls were three years old. “That was the beginning of them being my biggest cheering squad.” Terry said, “I would push them in their double stroller and they would cheer and coach me through the runs”. After many road races, Terry completed her first Sprint triathlon in 2009. She continues to enjoy Trail running, road races, obstacle/mud races, triathlons and Ragnar relays.
