Racine 70.3, Flathead Lake, MT open water swim, Xmas in July 12-hour Ultra Run, Lisle, IL, Taylor House Bike Ride

Flathead Lake, MT

Flathead Lake, MT

Great racing this weekend! Congratulations to Heather Wilson and Eero Allison who raced in the Racine 70.3. Due to weather, the race was significantly changed. The swim was cancelled and the bike was shortened to 30 miles. They ended up changing the event to a 30-mile bike followed by a 13.1-mile run. It can be quite hard for an athlete to get their mind right when changes like this happen at the last second. Eero and Heather did great, though. Eero finished in 3:29 and took 30th in his AG, while Heather finished in 3:37 and took 19th in her AG.

In Flathead Lake, MTHeather Grahame competed in a ½-mile open water swim and a one-mile open water swim. She finished the sprint in 16:32 and the mile in 30:49 and took 2nd in her AG in each race.

In Lisle, ILFrank Smith competed in the Christmas in July 12-hour ultra-run. They had some timing issues, but Frank covered somewhere between 50 and 55 miles in the course of the 12 hours. He keeps his monthly marathon or longer streak alive!

We also had Joan McGue riding the Taylor House Bike Ride up in Flagstaff.

Good luck to Patrick Haenel who is racing IM Canada this weekend! His dad, Mike, is racing the 70.3. Go Haenels!
