Athlete Accolades

June 9th, 2011

Congrats to Bree Wee for her overall victory in the Ironman 70.3 Hawaii.  Bree has targeted an overall victory in this race for a number of years.  To see her realize her goal – and the determination she applied on race day, was very rewarding to be a part of. 

Congrats on continued fitness gains on the way to Ironman Coeur d’Alene, for Jenny Lagerquist.  Jenny finished the swim and bike portions of the Ironman 70.3 Hawaii in PR time.  Unfortunately, doctor’s orders prevented her from doing the run portion of the race due to her recovery from a broken toe.  Jenny will not let a few weeks of no running impact her season long goal of a personal best Ironman time in CdA.  She’s on the mend and will be ready to toe the line (no pun intended) in just over two weeks. 

Props to Victor Riquelme for his contribution to the Wonderful Pistachios Pro Cycling Team’s efforts in the TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Classic.  Victor carried water bottles to his team mates all race, and still managed to hang in for 120 miles.  Keep an eye on Vic in the second half of the season. 

And finally – congrats to Susan Hayden for her fine 14:42 at the Club South Runner’s Hump Day 2 Miler.  What an excellent way to spend a Wednesday summer night.
