Smashing SC x2

2011 is wrapping up. Even though some Ironman triathlon was going on in Hawaii, the real action, if you are a triathlete, was taking place in South Carolina. If you were racing in SC and you are not an Accelerate 3 athlete, well, maybe you should reconsider based upon yesterday’s results.

James was doing at the Myrtle Beach Triathlon run in conjunction with the USAT Half Iron distance National Championships. This was his last shot to qualify for his elite card for next season. He seized control of the race on the bike whomping the field by over a minute. Then he turned in the second fastest run split grabbing the victory, his elite card and a prize check. His margin of victory was a comfortable :51 seconds.

Meanwhile on the other side of the state, Rich was ripping it up at the Rev 3 half ironman race in Anderson, SC. He lead the M35-39 out of the water, came off the bike 2nd in his wave and finished on the podium grabbing 3rd place in his age group. He was the 4th age grouper out of the water and finished 15th overall in the age group field.

For the second year in a row, Accelerate 3 athletes prove very successful when in SC.
