The days are getting shorter, the air is getting cooler and, for some of
the team, the off season is here. If you're still out there training in
the early morning/evening, please be safe in the dark by wearing
reflective gear/lights and being aware of cars. I want everyone to stay
healthy and in one piece!
Local racing is definitely slowing down, but the Week In Review is
carrying on to represent those team members who seemingly never have an
Bill Reeves, for example, raced the Wallis Sands
Triathlon in New Hampshire this weekend and placed first in his age group
and fourth overall. Brendan Hall raced the Amica 19.7 Newport, placing
third in his age group. And they weren't the only ones braving a swim on
a brisk fall morning--Kayle Shapero, Grace Tkach, and Ira Sills all
competed in the Sharkfest Swim, where they reported NO sharks but PLENTY
of jellyfish. Better you than me, guys... They all deserve congrats for
top-10 age group finishes across the board, and Grace and Kayle get
extra props for podium finishes (first and third, respectively). And of
course with Cyclocross season in full swing, Carrie Mosher and Pete
Jensen raced Sucker Brook, and both gave it their all.
This weekend some of our CX athletes will be back at it racing the
Gran Prix of Gloucester, the team will have a strong showing at the
Duxbury Tri, and we'll have some runners representing BTT in the Jack
Kerouac 5K, the Vermont 50 Trail Run, and the Maine Marathon.
Last but not least, I'll leave you with a race report from a pretty cool bike race that Krista Schepanovsky did a few weeks back.
