Our team headed to the mountains this past weekend for the Lake Logan Triathlon and Aquabike.

Long time team member, friend, and amazing advocate for women in multisport, Angie, raced her first long-distance aquabike (swim/bike).   It was her first experience in the mountains with a cold swim and very hilly bike. She did amazing and I am super proud of her.  Next up is the Toughman Aquabike in September and I know she is going to crush that as well.

Next up is our awesome Shannon.  She’s been the Official Team AMEC Sherpa for years and finally stepped into the spotlight this summer.  Her first event was the She Tris women’s only triathlon (which was founded by none other than our amazing Angie) in June and jumped right in with 2 feet for the Lake Logan Half.  She has the best attitude and I knew she would do amazing.  She even took home the Novice Female award!  Not sure what’s next up for her but I am sure there is something on her mind already.

Jana is one of our newest team members and she is such a great addition- we love her! She did a great job placing 6th in her AG.  We used today as a training race for IM Chattanooga in September.  I have all the confidence in the world that she is going to rock that, too!

Last but not least is Tracey.  This was her second year at Lake Logan. She’s had a very busy life year so her training hasn’t been as solid as she’s wanted but her attitude was perfect.  She says, “Yesterday was tough….I knew going in that my training was not where it should be, but nothing went as I hoped. In the end, what I love about triathlon and the 70.3 distance is how you learn so much about how much further you can go when you get the “I can’t” out of your head.”   I’m really proud of her.  She’ll be headed to the Hincapie Gran Fondo in October for a very challenging ride.

 

Next week is the official end of the summer triathlon season in Charleston with the last CSTS race. I can’t believe it! We will have a huge crew there so stay tuned…
