Also, Frank Smith also kept his monthly marathon streak alive with a 7:06 finish in the Leaping Luchador 50K (virtual)!
Actual races are starting to happen again! Kemp Conrad and DJ McCabe raced the DeGray Lake Olympic Triathlon in Arkansas. Kemp finished in 2:46 and took 1st in his AG! DJ finished in 2:39 and took 4th in his AG. These two will be racing the New Roads ½ Ironman next weekend in New Orleans. Nice job guys!!
Frank Smith is at it again! He raced the Katy Trail 50K in Dutzow, MO this past weekend. Frank finished in 6:27 and took first in his AG. This raced marked the 8th consecutive year that Frank has finished a marathon or ultra-race each month. What a streak!!
The photo here is from our trio of Tennessee athletes (DJ McCabe, Kemp Conrad, and Ed Wallis) who raced the Buster Britton Triathlon in Alabama a couple of weeks ago.
Have a great weekend everyone!
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!!
The photo here is from another beautiful morning in the McDowells. 🙂
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.
We THINK we have our email problems resolved, but just in case you don’t receive a response from us or if you receive an error message, you can still text. Or, you can reach us at email@example.com. BUT NOW, TO BETTER THINGS – LIKE RACE RESULTS!
We’d like to congratulate Frank Smith who kept his monthly marathon streak alive by completing the Flip Flops 50K this past weekend in Ohio. Frank finished the 50K in 7:14 under hot and humid conditions. Nice job Frank!

Mark Livingston – Bryce Canyon 50-miler
Well, what a week. . . .
In the midst of EVERYTHING, we are thrilled to be able to present some race results.
Scott Wiegand completed a virtual ½ marathon over Memorial Day weekend and finished it in 2:34. As many of our athletes have found, virtual races have been a great way to continue to compete, as well as test one’s fitness.
Mark Livingston raced the Bryce Canyon 50-mile ultra-run this past weekend. Yes, it was held with plenty of COVID-related restrictions in place. But this is one of the first endurance events to be held since the outbreak and may provide a roadmap for other events. Mark finished the race in 13:29 under hot conditions. This time was good enough for 5th in his AG!
Congratulations to both Scott and Mark! Have a great weekend!
