Just now catching up on the last two weekends of racing . . .
First, Melissa Samuelson ran the Twin Cities Ultra Looney Challenge last weekend. The challenge includes running a 10K and 5K the day before running the Twin Cities Marathon. Melissa ran a 55:19 10K and a 27:26 5K. She then followed those up with a nice 3:56 marathon! Her overall time of 5:10 helped her finish the Challenge as 4th overall female and 3rd in her AG! Nice job Melissa!
This past weekend, David Hay raced the special World Championship Qualifier Sprint Triathlon in Sarasota, FL. This was a draft legal race and top finishers qualified to be on Team USA and race the Sprint World Championship next year in Switzerland. David finished 3rd in his AG and secured a spot!
At the Rockhopper Xterra Tri in Tempe, Joan McGue finished in 3:04 and took 1st in her AG! Joan has raced this event going back many years. Way to go Joan!
By the way, the photo here is Tali Toncray demonstrating her best one-legged pirate during the Javelina Jangover 75K from a couple of weeks ago!
Good luck to everyone racing at Arizona 70.3 this weekend!
