Week in Review: 9/9 - 9/15

The last full week of summer was a quiet one for BTT!

Saturday brought the Lobsterman Triathlon, a sprint up in Freeport, Maine, and The Duxbury Sprint Triathlon down on the south shore. Jeff Daily and Will Bruce both posted great times in Duxbury, while Sean McCormick, Ira Sills, Carlo Jacob, Tim Daley and Victoria Arrigoni represented up north. An extra congrats are due to Ira for winning his age group!

On Sunday, Sasha Dass stayed local by racing the Whole Foods 5K in Cambridge. Nice job, Sasha! Meanwhile, Chris Borges placed second in his age group at the Dover Sherborn Triathlon, where Geoff and Katherine Hollywood also teamed up to take 7th in the relay division. Congrats, you all!

We have just a few more weeks of triathlon season 2013. Keep up the great work!

BTT was busy this weekend! Brendan Hall and Brian Kearney kicked it off with the RunAgainstCancer Boston 5K Series on Thursday, where they took 8th and 3rd in their divisions, respectively.

Then, on Saturday, Trish Kelly, Mark Mullins and Jeff Kreher all raced the Hyannis Sprint II Triathlon. A special shout out is due to Trish for her third age group finish, her second  podium ever and first since 2007. Meanwhile, Juli Jones Davenport was busy in Pennsylvania taking 1st AG and 12 overall at the Lehigh Valley Health Network Via 5K Run. Congrats, Juli! A little farther north, Stephen Wall raced the half at the Demi-Esprit Triathlon in Montreal, taking 10th in his age group. Bill Reeves kept himself busy by taking first in age group (and went 5th overall) at Pumpkinman Sprint Triathlon in South Berwick, Maine. 

The next day, Bill raced again in the Pumpkinman Half Iron, where he won his age group again! Wow! He was joined by Matt Coarr and Nicole Kimborowicz, who also had great races. Jorge Martinez was nearby in Biddeford, Maine, where he won the Mainiac Sprint Triathlon. Congrats, Jorge! Sunday brought a few other big races, including Ironman Wisconsin, where Andy Hackett and Tom Christofili both represented in Madison, and Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas, featuring our own Jen Scalise-Marinofsky. Laurie Damianos, Kyle Geiselman and Mary Beth Begley traveled to Washington, DC, where they all raced the Nation's Triathlon. Finally, Elaine Metcalf had a great day in Ontario at Ironman Muskoko 70.3 and Carrie Mosher took 2nd in her single-speed division at the Quad Cross, a 6.5 mile bike race in Maynard, MA.
