Burn Lake Duathlon
Not only did Robert help out at the mini-tri, but he raced the Burn
Lake Duathlon on Saturday the 22nd. This is one of the toughest du's in
the state, with two runs and a VERY long bike in the middle. To top it
off, he got 3rd in his AG!!
Kelly Mine Run
The recent rains made for a nice race from Magdalena to Kelly on July
9th. Ephraim Ford came in 2nd, about 4 minutes behind Matt, a visiting
runner from Ohio who broke the course record. Other notable finishes
included Kim Schaeffer, who was 2nd female.
More details & photos will come as I take time to put them in. This was a great race as usual.
Robert was the only SSer present for the full Bottomless Triathlon.
That meant he had some tough competition in his age group as usual and
finished in 67 minutes.
