Ironman Florida = TriRudy Award!

Kory McDonald coming off the bike - 14th place in her age group/53rd woman off the bike! 

Kory reported that the run was a bit slower, but she knocked a half hour off her run time from last year, which put her in the top third for the bike and run combined - Awesome!!!  


"And Ironman Florida is done! A little disappointing that it turned into a duathlon with the cancellation of the swim, but with strong rip currents and high winds it was definitely the right decision for the safety of the athletes and support teams. The 180K bike was by far the windiest ride I've ever done - winds averaged 30-40KM/Hr with crazy cross-wind gusts that made the bike hard to control. Despite the challenging conditions, my ride went great - finished in just under six hours (5:55), which put me in the top 10% in my age group. I also bettered last year's time for the run and ended up in the top third of my age group for the bike and run combined - last year at IM Tremblant I was in the bottom 25% for my age group. That's a 90-minute improvement (an hour from the bike and 30 minutes from the run) over my PB - very pleased! Having Mom and Dad there to cheer me on was definitely a highlight and Pedro was once again the best support-crew ever - he has turned my bike into a speed machine and he worked very hard to get himself to various places on the course today to support me and make sure I finished strong."
Kory


We all have to be prepared for the day when you get to a race and the swim is cancelled due to weather conditions. It happened in Tremblant and it can happen in Florida! Congratulations Kory for stepping up and taking it all in stride. With this race complete, Kory has now qualified for the prestigious TriRudy Award!! What an awesome season!! Well done!

Another Personal Best for Team Triumph! 

 

TORONTO WATERFRONT HALF MARATHON

Congratulations Kit E on a new Personal Best!! Today at the Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon Kit scored a 2 minute PB. The last time this frequent half marathoner had a PB was in 2007.

Who says you can't get faster as you get older? Determination and dedication proved that when you put in the training to chase a goal...YOU CAN DO IT!! She asked me last week if I thought it was possible so we decided to just go for it and keep the pace for a 2 hr race. Kit celebrated with a delicious post race meal with family!! 

 

SPIN/RUN/STRENGTH AND YOGA!

The FUN kicked off last week in the spinning studio. It was like going back to school! Lots of hugs and smiles as everyone regrouped with their pals. We welcomed in some awesome new people! Thanks to everyone for making the transition smooth and making the new folks feel welcome.
