The WIR is back after a patriotic hiatus. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! Audrey Perlow raced that day, with a solid finish in the Age (and Gender!) Handicapped 4-Miler.
past weekend was yet another busy one, with team members racing the
Mill City Triathlon, the Old Colony YMCA Olympic, the NYC triathlon, the
Providence 70.3, the 70.3 Muncie, and the Saratoga 12/24 bike race.
Congrats are due to Matt Pokress who was first overall at Mill City, and Lauren Bonaca who placed second in her age group (and 8th overall) at Old Colony! Virtual High Fives are also in order for Jeff Daily, Bryan Canterbury, Ed Galante, Tom Christofili, and Krista Schepanovsky, who all had strong finishes in their respective races.
Coming up this weekend is our next Tent Series race, the Mass State
Triathlon. Nine team members listed it as a race goal, and hopefully
many more signed up to volunteer, so we should have a great showing at
this local race. Also this weekend, the blue and green will represent at
the Dam Triathlon, Appleman, the Ellington Sprint, and Ironman 70.3 Racine. And future BTT member (Rookie Class of 2026?) Shelley Johnston will be competing in the Mass State Sixth Annual Kids Triathlon--her very first!
Good luck to everyone! Please be sure to submit your results, and
let me know if you'd like to contribute a race report. I'm always
looking for them. They don't have to be long, detailed, or clever. Just
share your experience with everyone. And if you want to volunteer at Mass State, please get in touch with Noah.
