Week in Review: July 26, 2012

by Brenda Chroniak

It was another banner weekend of racing for BTT. I seem to be noticing a trend here!

First and foremost, congrats to our IMLP finishers, Matt Pokress, Andy Hackett, Ross Stern, and Janice Biederman. And a huge WAY TO GO MATT for taking second in his age group and qualifying for Kona, finishing in an incredible 9:48:09. A double high-five is also due to Janice, who took third in her age group. Way to represent, guys!

While those guys were dominating the course at Placid, Noah Manacas was putting some hilly miles on his road bike at the Tour of the Hilltowns race in the Berkshires Saturday, then again at the Wells Ave Crit on Sunday, and Jason and Carolyn Soules both had top-10 age group finishes at the Jim Kane Sugar Bowl 5K.

Back in the triathlon world, Matt Pawa had a great race at the Nantucket Triathlon despite nasty currents during the swim (read his race report here) and we have a few more podiums to celebrate, with Kim Kaltreider winning her age group at the Marsh Madness sprint, and Sue Bruce and I taking second and first in our respective age groups at the Danskin Women's Sprint (Sue was also 9th overall). You can read all about this girl power race in my report.

And I know you've all been dying to know how Shelley Johnston's race went at MIT. I can tell you she rocked it, with support from BTTers Brett Johnston and Jess Douglas, but don't take my word for it--hear about it in her own words.

Good luck this weekend to everyone racing! If you're interested in cheering/supporting, the blue and green will be representing at the 24-Hour Around the Lake, Wild Cat Sprint, Witch City Triathlon, Lowell YMCA Triathlon, and the Yankee Homecoming 10-Miler.
