Race season has begun in earnest! We had two age group winners at Tri for the Cure this weekend. Sharon Johnston took the 50-54 age group, and then we had a nice one-two finish with Galina Kelly and Dana Kennedy taking the top two spots in the 45-49 age group. Galina was also 12th overall female with Laura Miles coming in just a few seconds behind in the 14th overall position. Laura was 3rd in the 35-39 age group.

And in Lake HavasuKirk McCarville took 1st in his age group in the Olympic distance race while Gabi Wasserman ran an impressive 2:07 and placed 23rdoverall in the collegiate division. Our young 18year olds, Riley Wardrop and Colton Van Wagoner came home in 2:22 and 2:28 respectively and took 2nd and 3rd in their AG. Colton and Riley are racing IM Texas in a few months.

Also, Frank Smith is running his fourth marathon in four days today. He is racing the Dust Bowl Series which includes five marathon in five states over five days. His first three marathons were all under 5:10. Go Frank!
