Hi All,
GC Tri was all over the place this weekend getting podium finishes and personal bests.  At the Brooklyn Half Marathon, Maria Wedgworth went a 1:40 sporting the amazing GC Tri visor and David Calabrese came in at 1:39 thankful for all those track workouts!  Our crazy distance runners Elena and Grace finished the Dirty German 50k trail run in 4:46:30 and 5:27:27, both personal best times!
At the Harryman Olympic triathlon, Jen Finotti took 4th overall female.  At the NY Tri Series Race #1 Simon Webster finished in 1:37.  At the Jerseyman Sprint, Glenn Hartrick took 3rd overall in 1:30, Melissa Manning took 2nd in her age group in 1:48, Kristine Papamichael took 5th in her age group at 1:58 and Erica finished right behind her in 6th at 1:59.  Nick Teslik took a good showing in a tough age group finishing 7th in 1:49.  At the Red Bank Olympic tri Jared Tootell took 3rd overall in 2:05, Lauren Dagastino took 3rd female in 2:33, Kristin Hespos finished in 3:08, Steve Su took 5th in his age group in 2:25, Matt Mustich finished in 2:30, and seconds behind him David Peitrangelo also finished in 2:30, and Scott Burns finished in 2:47.  At the Red Bank Sprint, Glenn Hartrick took the overall win!
Finally, congrats to Scott Duprex and Nick Walulick for finishing the American Triple T out in Ohio.  That’s a sprint tri on Friday night, an olympic tri Saturday morning, a reverse order olympic tri Saturday afternoon and to finish it off a half ironman Sunday morning!
This weekend Kristine will be leading a group ride on Saturday leaving the 14th St Ferry in Hoboken at 7:00 AM.  Get your long ride in early before you hit the beach!
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend and good luck to those swimming in the LavaSwim!  There will be a group ride and/or run after the swim.  Check out the FB group for more details!
Happy Training,
