Accelerate 3 athletes were grabbing podiums all over the US this weekend.
On a very windy day, Sarah smashed the women’s field on the bike, hung on during the run and won by over :30 at the Elephant Man Triathlon!
Rich snagged a 6th in his age group at USAT Age Group Nationals. This is one step up from last year’s age group finish. An uncharacteristic swim put him a little further back then he has ever been. His top four bike and run splits catapulted him through the field.
I crossed the line 7th overall, ended up 6th over all and won my age group at the Elephant Man Triathlon. The guy who finished 5th got a penalty for drafting off me in the bike. That moved me up. I was smashing the entire field in the choppy swim, well, except for the guy on my feet. He nipped me across the swim mat by :03.
