4th 5K's, Pewaukee Tri, Kelly Lake Tri
A warm July 4th full of 5K’s
Pete ran the America's Birthday Bash 5K in Green Bay on July 4th. He would say the competition was not elitle caliber, but hardware is hardware. He placed 2nd overall with a 19:11 time and 1st in the 30-39 age group. A "youngin" in the 20-29 age group got him by 16 seconds. :(
Scott ran Firecracker 5K and placed 4th in his age group with an impressive time. He placed top 7% overall and had a great race. You continue to impress and be an inspiration Scott!
Lee, Tricia, Meghan, Brian B and Mike P raced the Hairpin 5K in Fish Creek. It was a hot day on a hilly course but all survived. Tricia was proud to wear a race bib just 3.5 weeks from her bike accident, Meghan was just happy to be running at 33 week pregnant, Brian B placed 3rd overall and 1st in his age group, Lee kept the kids happy pushing them in the stroller and Mike beat the heat finishing with an excellent time.
Pewaukee Triathlon a first for Aaron
Aaron completed in his very first triathlon, he had a really good time in the Pewaukee area. It was a nice area and the scenery and hills made for an interesting and slightly challenging course...at least for him. Overall, it was a lot of fun for him and for his family. Aaron can't wait for the Door County Sprint!!!
Kelly Lake Triathlon interesting turn of events!
Ted competed in the Kelly Lake triathlon on July 7th. It was an interesting turn of events as Ted wondered why there was so much police presence and he was not allowed in transition after his race. Turns out a man stole a tri bike rode it to a nearby cottage and stole a car which in turn lead to a high speed chase to Green Bay. Who would have thought that a criminal would have such appreciation for the speed of a good triathlon bike? Anyway… congrats Ted on another solid race as you prepare for your 70.3 on the east coast!
