Greeting from Vermont, BTT! Noah Manacas is kicking off the first
stage of the Green Mountain Stage Race today and I'm Sherpa-ing. Good
luck, Noah! And that's a nice segue to let everyone know that I don't
discriminate in posting race results. Triathlon, running, cycling,
swimming, cyclocross, trail racing, etc., I don't care what sport you
log in. As long as you list it, I will give you a much deserved
He's the only team member crazy enough to be racing every day this
weekend, but there are plenty of others with races this weekend, too.
Good luck to Kim Kaltreider, Audrey Perlow, Tim Daly, and Sue Bruce!
Taking a look back at the week in racing that was, I don't know if
BTT is having an exceptional racing season, or if I just never paid such
close attention before, but we had another killer, podium-filled
weekend. Matt "Serious" Pokress outright won the Cranberry Olympic and
Chris Borges placed second in his age group, with Shay "Fun" Pokress and
Matt Mead both having great races that day, too, and the previous day
in the Sprint race, Meg MacSwan and Kelwin Conroy both won their age
groups, and Meg was third female overall. BTT also won the relay division with the speedy team of Grace Tkach, Kathy Connolly, and Jen Tucker.
Also that weekend, Mary Beth Begley was third in her age group at the
Memphis Soul 5k (thank you to those who volunteered), Bill Reeves was
first in his age group and second overall at the Check for Change Sprint
Tri, Ira Sills and Janice Biederman placed first and second in their
respective age groups at Rev3 Old Orchard Beach, and Beth Edwards and
Kim Kaltreider made up 2/3 of the 19-29F podium at Cranes Beach. Beth
was third female OA that day, Kim was sixth female.
Is anyone else totally and completely impressed with what a talented and hard-working team we have?!? I sure am.
Happy Labor Day Weekend. Enjoy these last few days of summer.
