Its been a pretty amazing couple weeks for me as a coach. It started last Saturday with Kendall running a PB in a local 10k race in Calgary and winning the whole race in the process! Next up was Carlos taking on a Sprint race in Ontario on Sunday morning. After a couple months of struggle with a knee issue, Carlos managed 9th in his age group and went faster than last year at the same race! And topping off this successful weekend Julie Anderson won a Sprint race in Elkford BC, proving that her consistency is paying off. Julie's efforts were good enough to beat all but 3 of the men as well! Yay team!
Moving on to this weekend and the success continued. Once again Julie was up to bat, this time at Wasa Olympic Distance. And true to form, Julie managed a PB for the distance and landed 2nd in her age group and 10th overall. At the same time, Megan Jones was racing to one of her best finishes winning her age group and finishing 8th overall! Well done to all of you! What a great start to the season!
And lastly, HUGE congratulations to Mercury Rising Coach Michelle Milot who married fellow triathlete Gary Barnes on Saturday afternoon in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Vernon. We wish them both the very best for their new life together.
