As the dust settled today at the Casa Grande Traithlon, not one, but two Accelerate 3 athletes stood atop the Overall Podiums. Sarah crushed the womens field by over seven minutes. Not only did she chick all but three guys on the bike, she chicked all but four men, grabbing fifth overall today. Hahaha you guys got chicked! (NP-213, AP-203).
Several people commented, most after being passed by her I might add, on her awesome riding of late. She now has won two of her last three races and finished third overall in the other.
I erased my :23 deficit after the swim riding 1:20 faster than anyone else to move clear of everyone. Today was one of those days where you just know you are on. It’s my second win in a row, not a shabby way to end the season. (NP-251, AP-246)
If my math skills are correct, that is between seven and nine overall wins spread across five athletes and about 20-25 podium placings spread across nine athletes. Not shabby at all.
The only thing left this year is to put the race wheels away and await the results of tomorrow’s Silverman Ironman Triathlon where there are a few Accelerate 3 Athletes racing.
