Great White North Report Part 1...

A handful of MRT athletes made the trip to race in the Great White North Half Ironman race this past weekend, and it looks like it was a speedy day for all of them!

Kari Strutt suffered a devastating loss just days before the race. She chose to do the race, in honour and in memory of her dear nephew. To call that a difficult task would be a tremendous underestimation, I’m sure. She carried him in her heart from start to finish, and that strength enabled her to race her fastest half Ironman to date. What a great way to honour his life. The Mercury Rising team extends our deepest condolences to you and your family, Kari.

Bouncing back from a race full of learning experiences at the Oliver Half, Patty Infusino put those lessons to good use, and blazed her way to a personal best! She crossed the line at 5:19, over 10 minutes faster than her time at the same race last year! Here she is, running strong, and looking goooood. Watch out, Ironman!!

Stay tuned for more updates on Great White North...
