Lauren and Kelsey- their first 70.3!

Lauren and Kelsey- their first 70.3!

 

Another great weekend for Team AMEC! First up, Boulder 70.3 served as the backdrop for sisters Kelsey and Lauren to jump into the triathlon scene.  This was Lauren’s first triathlon EVER and Kelsey dipped her toe in the water once at the TryCharleston sprint triathlon in April.

They did AMAZING!  Lauren came in sub-6 hours with a time of 5:53 and placed 16th overall in the 25-29 AG.  Kelsey came in at 6:17 and also placed an incredibly impressive 31st in the 25-29 AG.  I know they’re hooked and can’t wait for them to choose another tri to crush.  Next up for both ladies is the Copper Triangle , an extremely difficult 78 mile bike ride through three ski areas of Colorado, all over 10,00 feet of alititude and 6000 feet of elevation gain.

Doug continues to have a great summer by winning his AG at the Greenwood Triathlon. Not bad considering we are using these races as training days! He keeps crushing this heavy race load, and we’re gearing up for the Lake Logan half-ironman distance race, which is his A race of the year.  Can’t wait to report on his amazing results.

And, finally, Angie did great at Escape the Cape at Cape May, NJ.  Jumping off a barge to swim to shore is one of the unique features of the tri.  The swim was under somewhat difficult conditions and she rocked it.  Her husband, Chris, whom I worked with on the swim- also did amazing in his first race swim ever.  The weather was very steamy and the run therefore was miserable for all but Angie persevered and finished strong.

 

Great job to all again!
