The Week In Review is back, and there's a LOT to cover! Here's what's been happening since the last recap:
BTT sent March out like a lion. On the 24th, Tim Daley took fourth
in his division and fifth overall in the Team Velox Rota ITT and Audrey
Perlow won the Pi Miler (where she won pie - read her race report). The very next day we had BTT-ers
racing in the An Ras Mor, the Zurich Marato de Barcelona (ole!), the
Eastern States 20-miler, and the Run for the Border, with strong
showings by all. Congrats to Paul Newman for winning his Age Group at
the Ras! The following weekend, BTT represented at the Mutisport Expo,
both with a booth presence, and with athletes competing in the swim,
bike, and run competitions. Check out the standings for each event. Also that weekend, we had athletes at Shifter's 5K, Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K, and the Nautica South Beach Triathlon.
Which brings us to April (this WIR is a marathon, not a 5K).
saying is that April showers bring May flowers, but April brought with
it some toasty weather, instead. Boston Marathon Weekend was a
steaaaamah, but our athletes were just as hot! April 14 Regina O'Toole
did the Merrimack River Trail Race and Meg MacSwan took tenth in her
division at the iChase for the Cure 5K, then April 15 Trish Kelly ran
the BAA 5K while Tony Felos and Kim Kaltreider took on the Wrentham
Marathon Monday was one of the hottest on record, but the BTT
members who raced gutted it out, finished strong, and made us all proud.
Congratulations Carolyn Soules, Elaine Metcalf, Paul Newman, Mary Lou
Tierney, Maura Olcese, and Ed Galante! Read Carolyn's race report to
hear how she fared that day.
This past weekend, Laurie Damianos, Trish Kelly, Mary Beth Begley, and
Maggie O'Toole crossed the Mason-Dixon line to race 70.3 in New Orleans.
Once they've recovered from their adventures, I hope to feature a race
report next week. Also this weekend, Audrey raced (this seems to be a
trend) the GW Parkway Classic with yet another strong finish.
This coming weekend Brett Johnston will be tackling a 50K trail
race, and Matt Coarr, Bethany Edwards, and Laura Miyakawa will run the
James Joyce Ramble.
Thanks for bearing with me! Please remember
to post your goals, post your results, sign up for Training Weekend, and
volunteer for the Harpoon 5M.
