Turkey Trots and Tris

joan-mcgue-anthem-10k-nov-2016Yikes! It’s taken me a whole week to get caught up post Thanksgiving! Congratulations to everyone who started their days off with Turkey Trots or Tris!

Results are below, but first, good luck to those of you racing the Hot Chocolate 15K this weekend. The weather should be absolutely perfect for racing. Remember to dress as though the temperature is 20 deg warmer than what it is on the start line. In other words, if the morning low is supposed to be 40 deg, dress as though itis 60. This will keep you from over dressing and getting too hot in the first mile of the race. Have fun!

 

Turkey Trots
5K
Chris Kline – 26:44 PR!
Peter Ney – 20:40 – 3rd overall male!
Mike Auther – 21:56 – 3RD in AG

JFK 50-miler, IMAZ

2016-11-20-12-24-48Hope you all are enjoying a pleasant Thanksgiving weekend!

A nice time to reflect on what happened LAST weekend, as far as racing goes, anyway. Of course, I’m talking about IMAZ.

But first, also last weekend, congratulations to Kyrsten Sinema who ran the JFK 50 Miler and finished in a solid 12:30! Kyrsten remarked that it was definitely tougher on the body than an IM. Our hats are always off to ultrarunners.

As you know, for IMAZ, the race took place under near perfect racing conditions. How great that you all can remember a world record was set on the course this day. Great job to all our racers!

IMAZ
Eero Allison – 11:44, PR!!
Heather Wilson – 12:13 with a 4:15 marathon!!
Sally Borg – 14:13 – PR and 6th in AG!!
Steve Sweeney – 12:23 in his first IM!!
Amy Engel – 15:27 and her 8th IM!
Joe Gervais – 12:27
Heather Grahame – 14:28 and 7th in AG in her first IM!
Tali Toncray – 11:39 with a 4:04 marathon and 7th in AG!
Kristin Patterson – 13:59 in her first IM!
Paul Kluzak – 11:35 in his 7th IMAZ!

Bring on the meat of the running season and look forward to 2017!!!

At the Tempe Splash and Dash (1K swim, 5K run), Jennifer Talbot finished as 1st overall female!

David Hay ran the Veteran’s Day 5K and finished in 25:30 which was fast enough for 1st in his AG!

Tomorrow night (Wed) at 6pm is our race strategy lecture for IMAZ. We’ll go over pacing and race strategy for Sunday. Good luck to our IMAZ racers!!

Monumental Marathon, Indianapolis, San Tan 25K, Phx 10K and Half Marathon, 25 hours of Frog Hollow MTB

joan-mcgue-phoenix-10k-1026The running and MTB season is finally underway here in AZ! Hopefully the weather will continue to cool for IMAZ next week. There were some nice races this weekend.

Frank Smith kept his marathon streak alive by finishing the Monumental Marathon in Indianapolis. Frank finished in 4:40 and took 115th in his AG about a month after doing IM Maryland!

Peter Ney ran a nice 2 hour run at the San Tan 25K off road run. Peter took 15th overall male.

We had several people race the Phoenix 10K and 1/2 marathon this weekend.

Phoenix 10K

Joan McGue – 59:01 – 4th in AG

Mike Auther – 47:55 – 9th in AG

CJ Ketterer – 48:16 – 3rd in AG

Phoenix ½ Marathon

Dave Frome – 1:50 – 3rd in AG

Near Zion, Utah, Ric Emery raced a 25 hour endurance MTB event called the 25 hours of Frog Hallow. Ric had an excellent race and covered 195 miles in 25 hours. This was good enough for 2nd in his division and also ranked him as the number 2 single speed endurance racer on the circuit nationally! Nice job, Ric!

As a reminder, our next IM lecture is on Wed, Nov 16th at 6pm. We will meet at the Comfort Inn in Fountain Hills. This meeting will cover proper pacing and race strategy for IMAZ. We are holding the meeting during IMAZ race week so that the information stays fresh in everyone’s mind! Hope to see you there – all are welcome!

Javelina 100, Austin 70.3, Tri Family Halloween Sprint

toby-baum-javelina-100-oct-2016Loving the cooler weather and rain today! We have three races to report on from the weekend, of which two of them could have used these cooler temps. First,  Kory McCarthy  won the overall title at the Tri-Family Halloween Sprint Tri. He finished in an impressive time of 1:06. At the same race, Tanya Perry completed here first triathlon and took 3rd in her AG with a time of 1:43!

The hot weather made things pretty tough for the ultra-runners at the Javelina 100 in McDowell Mountain Park. Toby Baum was not deterred and finished the 100 mile run in 27:56!

In Texas, Sharon Johnston competed in the Austin 70.3. The swim was cancelled due to fog and Sharon crushed the bike/run course with a time of 5:11 and took 3rd in her AG!

Only 17 days until IMAZ! Keep your fingers crossed for overcast skies and light winds!

IM Hawaii, IM Barcelona, Xterra Rockhopper Tri, Tour de Scottsdale, Grand Canyon Rim to Rim

brian-toncray-papago-off-road-tri-oct-2016What a great weekend of racing! First off, congratulations to Dwight Lundell who raced Kona and finished in a solid 14:44 and 9th in his AG. Dwight is now a 10-time Ironman finisher and has made the podium at Kona twice!

The Xterra Rockhopper Tri was also held this weekend in Papago Park. Off road tri is an exciting form of racing and a great way to break out of a triathlon rut if you’re bored of the same old races. We had three racers doing it this year and all did great and had fun!

 

Rockhopper

Brian Toncray (pictured) – 2:08 – 3rd in AG

Joan McGue – 3:05 – 1st in AG

Jennifer Talbot – 2:59 – 2nd in AG

David Hay and Bo Micek raced the 30 miler at the Tour de Scottsdale. David finished in 1:38 and Bo finished in 1:49. Sue Frome also raced the 30 miler and finished in 1:40. She took 2nd in her AG and 12th overall female! Way to go Sue!! By the way, this race is organized by our own Jona Davis, who is a long time Camelback Coaching athlete!

Last weekend, Nir Joels raced IM Barcelona and finished in a nice 11:45. Great job Nir!!

One of the great things about triathlon training and endurance sport in general is that it keeps you in shape for all sorts of other adventures. In that spirit, congratulations to Adela Riehle, who completed the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim run/hike this weekend in 10 hours car to car. Adela finished IM Boulder earlier this summer.

We look forward to seeing everyone at AZ 70.3 on Sunday!
