Awesome job to Rosalie White for taking 2nd in AG at the Georgia Peach Women’s triathlon! Susan Bennett has been busy! 😀 Congratulations for taking 2nd Overall Female at the Real Estate Agents in Need 5K AND for completing her very first HIM, Augusta 70.3 in under her goal with a time of 6:58:20! Training pays off!
We had several other members complete the Augusta 70.3 race! We are happy to say we made it and didn’t die from heat exhaustion!!!! Big shout out to Joy Knop for completing her very first 70.3 race in the blistering heat. A PR in and of itself! Additional congrats goes to Lance Parker, Katina Stewart, and Billy Webb! I will reiterate……we didn’t die!!! Yes, that is a big deal!👍🏻❤️😀 Prinsloo family, I know you were there, so where is your race form???🙃 Congratulations to you as well!
With respect to the 70.3 race, a huge “Well done” goes to Grady Smith for completing the World Championship in Mooloolaba, Australia!👏🏻👍🏻
Kudos to Chris Stroh for taking 2nd place overall at the Tutus and Tennis Shoes 5K! Well-deserved!👏🏻
And finally, to the strong, winged warriors who took on IM Chattanooga with a race distance of 144.6, and a heat index that was nearly the same!!!! 😳 What an awesome achievement just to be able to complete the race in such conditions with so many being taken off the course due to the unbearable heat! Great job to Clayton Moss, Jo Curry, and especially to Paul Pickles, as it was his first full IM! Paul completed it with a time of 15:39:40!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👌🏻
Remember, keep those race reports coming! First, you deserve the accolades, and because we can all help to encourage one another with our accomplishments! We are stronger together!!!
