If you were looking for a little inspiration this weekend, there was plenty of it flying around the roads, tracks, and pools. A few of our sponsored Picky Team athletes and Feed the Dream participants had BIG races, and we want to give out a couple of well deserved virtual high fives:
Heather Kampf defended her “Queen of the Road Mile” title by claiming her third consecutive and fourth total win at the event.
Garret Heath, who’s having a helluva season and is a two-time winner in the event, took the second step on the podium with a 3:59.
Kelsey Bruce nailed a top 10 finish for the second year in a row, placing 6th in a smoking 1:29 (that’s 5:47/mi for 15.5+ miles!!)
Ben Kanute claimed his spot on the Olympic triathlon team, his 17th place overall finish sealing the deal after a season-long selection process.
Alyssa Seely (PT2) took the top women’s spot in the Olympic-distance event. Alyssa is already qualified for Team USA, where paratriathlon will make its debut as a Paralympic event in Rio.
Caitlin Leverenz took a dominating win in her signature event, the 200-meter individual medley.
Way to go, crew! Exciting stuff coming up this spring in anticipation for a big BIG summer. You can follow along with all of our athletes through our Twitter Lists – virtual high fiving made easy!
