Buster Britton Triathlon – Alabama

Yes, we have race results!

We are fortunate to coach athletes from around the country, and in certain places, they are actually holding races!

Three of our athletes–DJ McCabe, Kemp Conrad, and Ed Wallis— raced the BUSTER BRITTON TRIATHLON in Alabama. This race holds a special place in our hearts as Anne raced here waaaaaay back in 1990 when we were stationed in Pensacola, FL, for flight school. Yikes! Fastest 30 years ever!

Anyhow, our athletes had some great performances:

DJ McCabe – 1:04 – 5th in AG

Kemp Conrad – 1:06 – 2nd in AG

Ed Wallis – 1:13 – 10th in AG

All three will be racing the New Roads ½ IM in LA in Sep. Nice job guys!!

Swimming in Greece










Dan Muzich took lessons from me so he could swim from his boat. Before, he could only make it the length of the boat. Now, he swims a mile. He just sent these photos from Greece. No, not jealous AT ALL.
