Weekend Update: Dam Tri, Greensboro Cannonball Half Marathon, Kiawah Island Triathlon

Another weekend of thrills (and spills) for Team AMEC. We had racers headed all over the place and I am happy to report that we had a great times and great results everywhere we went. Let’s start with Saturday…

Dam Tri

Greg and AJ headed up to Lake Murray for a local’s favorite, the Dam Tri. This was the last tri of their 2019 season before we ramp up for their first full distance races at IM Texas in April. Sadly, Greg took a bit of a spill hitting some gravel on a descent. Happily, he escaped with just TONS of road rash and not a serious injury that would put a definite kink in his training. AJ raced like a rockstar. They’ll both be at the Kiawah Half Marathon next.

Greensboro Cannonball Half Marathon

It was a family affair in Greensboro when Andreas, Emily and Melissa all ran the Greensboro half. This was the longest run Emily had ever done and I am super stoked for all of them. Excitingly this was a training day for Melissa who will be at the NYC Marathon in just a few short weeks!

Kiawah Island Triathlon

After another year of a hurricane delay for the Kiawah tri, Sunday was finally race day and it was good for all involved. And other than a pretty rough and tumble swim everyone enjoyed themselves.

I’m really excited to report that Sandy won overall female and placed 6th overall overall! We were a little concerned that with the delay in the race that we missed her peak window, but obviously not! She crushed it- hitting all the target numbers we went in with. Next up for her is Kiawah Marathon and then IM Texas!!

But wait! We also had lots of other podium spots!

  • Emily- 1st in AG
  • James- 2nd in AG
  • Ken- 2nd in AG
  • Scotty- 2nd in AG
  • Angie- part of the 1st place female relay team
  • Ashley and Missy- part of the 2nd place female relay team

And not to overlook our other badasses… Heather was part of the 4th place female relay team, Sandra rocked it out as a training race for NC 70.3 next week and Steve continues to get faster and faster! GREAT WORK EVERYONE!! We have a lot coming up so please stay tuned! AND….. we still have room on our team for my athletes. If you are thinking about a coach and want to join our family, contact me!
