Yet another awesome weekend of racing in the books!

The Jekyll Island International Triathlon was the kick-off race for Sarah and she kicked ass.   Last year she finished in 3:07 so her goal this year was to break 3 hours.  Based on how she’s been performing this year I tried to tell her this was setting the bar WAY too low.

Needless to say, when she texted me that she smashed her goal- finishing in 2:44,  placing 2nd in her AG only 40 seconds from first, and coming in 5th overall female- I was not even the least bit surprised. Elated yes, surprised no.   I am so very proud of her!!!

Also a quick shout out to Sarah’s husband Josh, who also had a great race and placed in his AG for the first time!  He’s recently been using the magical weapon of training at TotalCyclist and he knows it’s helping him get stronger on the bike.

Brian had a great day at the Green and Lean 5k.  This was the first race under his belt since we have started working together, having been sidelined by injuries and surgery for quite some time.  He did GREAT and won his AG. We’ve been periodically “testing” his mile and 5k paces in training and his 6:45 average pace this weekend is faster than his 1 mile pace a few months back.  At this rate’ll be sub-20 minutes in no time and closer to all his 2017 goals.

Finally, Melissa had a great weekend at the Ragnar Cape Cod Relay.  She participated with her daughter Emily and ran 3 legs with a total of 19 miles, and got stronger and faster as she went along.

Check back next week as we will have a HUGE presence at the first Charleston Sprint Series race.
