Finally . . . events are slowly starting to return. We had quite a few people racing last weekend! Congrats to all!
We want to give a shout out to Joan McGue who raced the Iceman Duathlon last weekend at Lake Pleasant State Park. Joan finished the 5K run, 20K bike and 5K run in 2:11 with the second run faster than the first! This was one of the first multi-sport races to be held in AZ this year. Nice job Joan!
We had some great run performances last weekend! The Lost Dutchman here in Phoenix, the Sylamore Ultra Runs in AR, and Frank Smith knocked out a virtual 50K on his treadmill in OH!
Frank Smith kept his monthly marathon/ultra streak alive last weekend with a 7:02 finish in the Hilo to Volcano Virtual 50K. While the race sounds tropical, he ran in Cincinnati, OH. Nice job Frank!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this, but in 2021, we are entering our 18th year of coaching. We absolutely must offer our sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you–Camelback Coaching athletes past and present–for making this possible. For the last 17 years, it has been an honor and a privilege to work with you and help you in the pursuit of your goals. Here’s to a safe and healthy 2021 . . . hopefully, with actual races. 🙂
Congratulations to our athletes who keep putting it out there. Who continue to train day after day with either no event on the horizon, or if anything, just a virtual one. But we do have actual races from time to time, and last weekend, two of our CC athletes took advantage. Joan McGue raced the Anthem 5K and finished in 31:04, taking 3rd in her AG. Frank Smith actually ran something shorter than a marathon and clocked a 23-minute 5K in Ohio. Great job, guys!
Happy Thanksgiving weekend! The results from last week were virtual, but results nonetheless!
Congratulations to Sean Byrne who completed his DIY Ironman Arizona. IMAZ was to be Sean’s first IM, however, as most of you know, IMAZ was cancelled due to COVID precautions. Sean decided to run his own Ironman and covered the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run on his own in 16:08. Nice job Sean!
In Tennessee, Kemp Conrad and Ed Wallis ran a virtual ½ marathon. Kemp finished in 1:45 while Ed logged a time of 1:58.
In Ohio, Frank Smith ran the virtual Possum 50K on a treadmill! He finished in 7:22 and his knees and legs are still holding up!
Congratulations to Joan McGue and Melissa Samuelson who each raced last weekend. Joan raced the virtual Phoenix 10K and finished in 1:05 and took 3rd in her AG. Melissa raced the local Splash and Dash in Tempe Town Lake and finished 2nd overall female. We love that our athletes are making it happen whenever and wherever they can. Way to go, guys!
Congratulations to Mark Livingston for completing his first 100-mile run last weekend at the Javelina 100! Mark is a long time Camelback Coaching athlete with Ironman triathlons and 50-mile runs under his belt. Mark finished this grueling race in 24 hours and 48 minutes! Nice job Mark!!
