2010 Gloucester Fisherman Triathlon Pics from David Cox Part I

I couldn’t be prouder of our coverage of The Gloucester Fisherman Triathlon. 

Everyone stepped up to once again bring you the very best coverage of the event all the way from this past winter when we started our interviews with Janda and Judy Destino pumping up the race, Manny getting everyone excited with his pre-race interviews, throughout our live coverage and reporting as well as posting photos of the winners within minutes of them crossing the finish line, Thom Falzarano’s photo slideshow of the beginning of the race with over 70 hi res pictures posted within an hour of the start of the race,Sister Felicia sending in pictures as the race was unfolding, Marty posting his usual journalistic quality scene photography, Ed Collard getting the footage of the race course and calmly describing the scenesOver 500 hi res photos in all, over 5 hours of video coverage, community photos and involvement, and being the very first to report the winners anywhere I’d say I owe the crew a pizza party at the very least.

You Guys Rock and we once again proved that THIS IS THE SOURCE!  GMG BABY!  Here’s the start of the Fantastic camera work by our David Cox!

Live Blogging The Gloucester Fisherman’s Tri Starts Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight NOW!

4:35AM Staging area.

I got up extra early to get some coverage of the set up at the staging area in Saint Peter’s Square (video uploading now)

The race workers are professionals at this all having worked for the company for a while and all knowing their role.  With an hour til competitors will be showing up they were cool, calm and collected, even making jokes knowing that by 5AM the whole place will be bustling with activity.  If I were a triathlete I’d get down there early to sign in if you hadn’t already done so yesterday because the lines will probably get big in a hurry.-
