Week in Review: May 30, 2012

by Brenda Chroniak

Break out the seersucker and linen, dust off the white shoes, and freshen up your Nantucket reds--summer is here!

Meg MacSwan and Matt Mead both started their summer (or, technically, ended their spring) at the Run to Remember (Meg in the half marathon and Matt in the 5-miler), while Steve Sian headed north for a 25K run in Maine. All had strong finishes.

This coming weekend is another big one for BTT with both Mooseman and Rev 3 Quassy, a tent series race, looming large. On Saturday, Victoria Arrigoni, Brenda Chroniak, Jess Douglas, Braden Larmon, Jorge Martinez, Laura Miyakawa, Jamie Strain, and Ross Stern will take on the Olympic distance race at Quassy and Mary Beth Begley, Tim Daley, Matt Mead, and Maggie O'Toole will race the Mooseman International Distance.

Sunday, we have Bryan Canterbury, Matt Coarr, Mike Corcoran, Ed Galante, Brendan Hall, Mike Hollywood, Pete Jensen, Brett Johnston, Sean McCormick, Elaine Metcalf, Carrie Mosher, Paul Newman, Matt Pokress, Kayle Shapiro, and Austin Whitman all racing the 70.3 at Quassy (Carrie is aquabiking), and Andy Hackett and Mark Vautour will be racing the same distance at Mooseman.

Also this weekend, Erica Allen and Grace Tkach will do the Charles River 1-Mile Swim (better you than me), Meg MacSwan will do her best to Escape the Cape (I wouldn't mind being trapped there for the next few months), and Kate O'Malley will run the Covered Bridges Half Marathon (how many covered bridges do you actually run over?).

Good luck everyone! Have great races, and please remember to post your results and goals so I can properly shout you out in next week's WIR. And if anyone would like to contribute a race report, please do!
