Week in Review: 4/12/2013

by Brenda Chroniak

April showers bring May flowers, and April training brings summer racing!

Since I last left you, only four people have logged in race results, though I know many of you participated in the TRI-MANIA Team Challenge a few weeks ago, and others ran the Doyle's 5-Miler last weekend.

While I won't give shout-outs to those who don't post results, I WILL boast that BTT took 6th place overall at the TRI-MANIA challenge. Congrats to everyone for their hard work and many thanks to the teammates who volunteered in the booth that day. Word on the street is that every last one of our flyers was distributed, so hopefully that will mean LOTS of fun new people to train with this summer, and LOTS of great applicants in the fall!

On the 25th, Anthony Low ran a speedy 2:28:53 in the Eastern States 20-Miler, then on the 30th we had a great BTT showing at Shifter's 5K, where Jorge Martinez placed first in his division and third overall, and Tim Daley and Ed Galante both had great races.

This weekend Tim Daley (who posted his race goal...) will be riding in the challenging Tour of the Battenkill, which I've heard described as "Neutral start. Climb. Climb. Dirt dirt. Rocks. Wind. More dirt. Climb climb. Rocks again. Cry. Curse. Climb. Sprint." Good luck, Tim! 

And then I hear there's some running race happening on Monday? Pretty small, right? Not a big deal?  KIDDING. 

Wishing the very best of luck to Ed Galante, Minna Kim, Joe Kurtz, Eric Lambi, Meg MacSwan, Paul Newman, and Terry Reagan (who all posted their race goals...) as they take on the Boston Marathon. May the wind be at your backs and cold Harpoons be waiting for you at the end!  And thanks in advance to everyone who will be volunteering with our sponsor PowerBar.

Have a great weekend everyone and please please please post your goals and results so I can properly shout-out everyone's hard work and dedication.
