Happy Hump Day, BTT! Congrats to all for surviving that last heat wave.
T'was the week between Mass State and IMLP and all was quiet! We did have a little blue and green racing in various events all over the country. (Yes, country, thanks to Lucy).
Lucy Herzog is kicking it on the west coast, where she took fourth in her age group at the Goleta Beach Triathlon in Santa Barbara. LA living agrees with you, Lucy, though everyone in Boston misses you!
Brenda Chroniak also rocked her age group by taking third at the Athleta Iron Girl race in Webster, MA. This was the day after her other half, Noah Manacas, raced the NCC Tour of the Hilltowns, a 57 mile cycling race in Northampton, MA. No rest for this BTT couple!
Down in the islands, Matt Pawa took 9th in his age group at the Nantucket Hero Triathlon, the new Olympic distance addition to the popular Nantucket Sprint Triathlon.
Finally, Joe Kurtz squeezed in a Lake Placid warm up swim by taking second in his division at the Nubble Light Challenge, a 2.4 mile ocean swim in York, Maine, though rumor has it the course ran a little long! The swim leg of IMLP will be a piece of cake for this guy, rolling start or not!
Next up this weekend we have the Mascomaman Half Triathlon, Ironman Lake Placid and the Marshfield Duxbury Triathlon. Good luck to everyone racing!
