Congratulations to Susan Geib (pictured) who raced the Nevis Northwoods Sprint Tri in MN last weekend and took first in her AG with a time of 1:35. Nice job Susan!

Russ Perry completed the Everest Challenge in Utah last week. This event is held at ski resorts around the country. The idea is to climb the same elevation (29, 029′) as Mt. Everest in one non-stop effort by completing laps up the ski resort’s mountain. Russ climbed 29,029 feet in a grueling 28:34! He said it was the hardest thing he has ever done! If any of you are looking for a new challenge then this might be worth looking into!

Have a great weekend!
