Lots of results to catch up on, so here we go!
Kemp Conrad raced in his first Triathlon National Championships in Milwaukee after only one year in the sport. He raced the Sprint and the Olympic distance races over the course of the weekend. He finished the sprint in 1:16 and the Olympic in 2:32. His Olympic time was a PR by 14 minutes!
Frank Smith raced the Boulder 70.3 on a day when Denver recorded the worst air quality in the world! The smoky skies did provide some heat relief, though. Frank finished in 7:09 and took 30th in his age group.
Maria Warner and Joan McGue raced the Mountain Man Olympic Tri in Flagstaff last weekend. This is one of the toughest Olympic races in the US and a longtime favorite of SW racers. Maria finished in 3:41 and took 4th in her AG while Joan finished in 4:22 and took 2nd in her AG!
During the same weekend, Carlos Diazcadena raced the Leadville 100-mile MTB race in Colorado. He finished the grueling, high altitude event in 11:47, earning the coveted Leadville 100 belt buckle!!! Way to go, Carlos! He is hoping to follow this race up with the 108-mile Barnburner race in September held in Flagstaff.
Finally, Susan Geib (pictured) finished first in her age group in the Young Life Sprint Tri held in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota! Susan completed the race in 1:28 – an 18-minute improvement from last year! Outstanding race, Susan!
Congratulations to all our awesome athletes!
