Weekend Update: Charleston Sprint Triathlon 5 and CCA Regional Championships

sprint2
It’s always hard to believe when the series finale of the Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series sneaks up on us. It marks the unofficial end of summer and always seems to get here before we know it.  But as usual, it turns out to be one of the better races of the season.  We had PRs, almost PRs, podiums, fastest splits, and other important personal accomplishments.

I know I say this every week but I never take for granted how close-knit our team is.  They are so supportive of each other- so much so that they even do each other’s hair.

 

Let’s discuss some of today’s moments.

Also… a big welcome to Sandy racing her first race as a Team AMEC member.  She’s returning to the sport after an prolonged injury break and we are stoked to have her.

Next up is the CCA Regional Bike Racing Championshipscca

Scotty and Steve headed down to Walterboro for some bike racing this weekend.  Scotty raced his first ever criterium and did great.  He placed 1st of his age category and 3rd overall in the race.

Both he and Steve did the TT on Sunday and killed it.  I forsee more bike racing in their futures.
