As many of you get ready for IMAZ, we want to take the time to congratulate Heather Grahame on her race last weekend. Heather raced the National Championship Aquabike race in Miami last Sunday. An Aquabike race consists of a swim and bike, but no run. This particular form of multisport racing has seen a dramatic increase in popularity over the last 3 years. Here is a great article about what this sport is all about: https://www.wsj.com/articles/forget-triathlons-its-time-for-aquabike-1510542721#comments_sector
In Miami, Heather raced the 1.2 mile swim and 56 mile bike in 3:39 and took 3rd in her AG. She had a 42 min swim and a 2:52 ride on a day where the wind gusts exceeded 30mph Her result qualified her for the Aquabike World Champs in 2018 which will be held in Denmark!!
Nice job, Heather!!
