Marathon and Triathlon Weekend
Our Marathon Maniac Tracy M was in Kent, WA racing this weekend.
“I had an enjoyable race today doing the Green River Marathon, which went from Kent to Alki Beach in West Seattle. The weather was great and the route was a pretty one which followed the Green River into West Seattle.” says Tracy, SAA Member and Marathon Maniac.
We also had a HUGE contingent of triathletes in Oliver, BC racing this weekend. Some 1st timers, PBs and Age Group podiums were part of the fun.
“The wind made for choppy swim conditions and a very very tough bike ride. There was also some isolated rain showers but the story of the day was the wind. As Joe Dixon said at the awards ceremony, we had the year it was 40oC, the year it was cold, but this year goes down as the year of wind. It made for very tough racing conditions out there which makes the multiple personal bests in our group even more impressive.” says Joanne F, SAA President.
