The first race is in the books for an Accelerate 3 athlete. It went rather well if you were to ask me.
You’ve read about Kerry’s running prowess on previous blogs. You know, stuff like the 8th fastest female run time at a 70.3 including elites, 3rd fastest run time at another half ironman triathlon in Florida including men, women and elites. She has gone well under 3:00 for the marathon.
Today at the Suncoast Classic Race for the Kids 5k she placed 3rd overall for the women in 18:57 bringing home $75 for her efforts! Too bad I can’t post a pic of her from today, but when you’re clocking 6:06 per mile, it’s hard for a camera to capture your image.
Kerry has thrown down the gauntlet for this year. Those are some pretty big and speedy shoes to fill.
