Happy August, team!
Noah Manacas kicked off the new month on Friday with the first of three stages of the Tour of the Catskills. Over the weekend, he raced a total of 128 miles, because one day just isn't intense enough! Nice job, Noah!
Sunday was a great day for BTT, with both Kayle Shapero and Pat Dwyer winning their respective races! Kayle took first female and fifth overall at Marshmellow Man, a interestingly named sprint triathlon in Laconia, NH, and Pat took first overall at the Greenfield Lightlife Triathlon, an Olympic distance race in Greenfield, MA.
Meanwhile, we had some racers and volunteers at the Boston Triathlon, representing on our home turf! Trish Kelly raced the whole thing solo, taking fifth in her age group, while Rachel Saks Aronis, Mike Hollywood and Bethany Edwards Crocetti teamed up to take fifth in the relay division. Big thanks are also due to Mary Beth Begley, Katie O'Dair, Laurie
Damianos, KC Connolly, Rachel Saks
Aronis, Mark Nickerson, Dan Schorr, Sean McCormick, and Maggie O'Toole, who volunteered.
This weekend brings USAT Nationals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Sharon Triathlon and Hodges Village Dam and MA State Championships. Good luck to everyone participating!
