It was a Triathlon Weekend here at Active. The local Carlsbad Triathlon consisting of a 1K Swim – 25K Bike – 5K Run was held on Sunday morning. We had 4 brave souls battle the rough surf in the mighty Pacific.
I will start according to how they did in their respective age groups.
ALYSON TYSON aka CHICKEN was no chicken in the S-B-R. She had an overall time of 1:42:29 which placed her a very high 10th in the W 20-24 age group. Great job leading the way for Active!
MAREA BLUE was another strong W 20-24 performer with a total time of 1:54:25; this placed Marea 16th in her age group.
A newer Active team member to the events team making her mark was SHANNON TURNER who had a fast time of 1:46:32. Shannon is in the always competitive W 30-34 age group and placed 27th, this was also one of the largest Women’s age groups of the day. Shannon did say she is training hard for the AFC ½ and this was just a stepping stone.
AND last but not least is our resident Triathlon expert ERIC MCCUE who must have spent a ton of time training for this (yeah right!). Eric’s time was a fast 1:33:08 but placed lower than all our girls in is age group at 35th. We heard rumor he got spanked on the bike!
We did have another person run on July 4th I missed and that was JENNA CHABOT who ran the Scripps 10K in 58:25.
And I can’t wait to hear about the climb up Mt. Whitney this weekend by a few of our team members lead by VICKY EYDELBERG.
We can never forget our team sports men and women still competing at a high level. This is cool because we had 2 Active team members battling each other on opposite teams.
DIEGO ROVIRA’S Nomads team played and defeated ALEX ROMAGNOLO’S (ROMO) team in the semi-finals of the 6 a side soccer tournament at Rob field. The Nomads went undefeated to win it all and the fleet footed former St. Mary’s D1 standout DIEGO scored a goal in every game they played!
