Wow, what a great weekend for BTT!
Mark Pelletier and Glen Cote decided to stick around town to race the local Westborough Sprint Triathlon, where they duked it out in their mutual age group. Rookie Andrew Trott also stayed local by taking first place in his age group at the Witch City Triathlon in Salem. Nice job!
A little farther north, BTT dominated Timberman 70.3. Tons of people raced, including Jorge Martinez, Brendan Hall, Brian Kearney, Kayle Shapero, Kiko Verdeguer, Danielle McLaughlin, Jess Douglas, Mary Beth Begley, Brenda Chroniak, Paul Newman and Janice Biederman. Congrats, everyone! Special kudos are due to Jorge and Kayle for qualifying for the 70.3 World Championship next year in Mont Tremblant and to Brenda, Jess and Danielle for their amazing half iron debuts. Mary Beth and Janice also narrowly missed the five-spot podium by taking 6th in their age groups.Check out Janice's race report if you would like to read about her great race, which earned her a PR!
And over the border in Mont Tremblant, Canada, Pat Dwyer, Amy Robinson Greenwood and Nik Pappastratis were busy rocking Ironman Mont Tremblant, where they all had amazing races. This was new member Nik's first Ironman and Pat took a Kona spot by placing 7th in his age group (and, while we're counting, it was his 9th Ironman).
We should all be so proud of BTT for weekends like this! Congrats to all of you!
