Week in Review: 9/26/2012

by Brenda Chroniak

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 off-season.

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.
