Early Season Accomplishments: The Wheelworks Multisport Tri-season is off to a great start.  A group of determined teammates braved the cold and the rain at the New England Season Opener in Hopkington in mid-May.  Medena Knespl won 1st place overall and Caitlin Clavette was 3rd in her age group!

The Asland Lions Olympic Tri the First weekend of June also saw Medena atop the podium with great finishes by Sherman Roberts (1st in AG), Andrew Fink (2nd in AG), and Anne Traer (2nd in AG).

The New England Tri-fest in Fairlee, Vermont was held on a hot and humid day, but that didn’t stop Tony Leach from finishing 2nd in his AG and 15th overall.  Dale Nepert (2nd in AG) and Jane Carbone (3rd in Aquabike) also topped the podium.  David Crelling had a strong race with 4th in AG, while Anne Traer limped in at 9th in AG after a horrible 10K run in the heat.  Alison Ballard also did an impromptu Aqua-bike for the half distance. New England Tri-fest

Whaling City Sprint Triathlon brought out a large group of teammates (~20) to race and win 4th place in the Tri-team challenge!  Medena Knespl was 2nd overall, Sunny Schettler was 1st in Div and Kristin Pitocco was 2nd in AG!

Other fun team activities in June included a Yoga for Triathletes Clinic at WWMS team sponsor, Be Yoga Studios, in Union Square  2013-06-16 14.59.22And an epic 135 mile ride from Boston to Provincetown, led by Jon Chesto with more than 20 teammates joining for part of the ride and 13 completing the entire course!    Photo of the core group after a beer at the Beachcomber in Wellfleet!No Sleep till p_town

Training Weekend 2013 - About 30 teammates made their way up to the White Mountains for training weekend.  Andrea and Beck did a great job of setting up a grand weekend!  Rides on Saturday included ranged from 40 – 100 miles with some teammates running both before and/or after.  Richard, one of the owners of the Franconia Inn, showed us some great new routes and the Inn staff treated us like elite athletes!  15 teammates topped the Kanc and special shout-out to Sergey and Kristen P for finishing a 100 miles with Agassiz Hill (18.5% grade) at mile 90!   Emma spotted a bear on her 15 mile run before breakfast (luckily, the bear did not make breakfast of her!).  The dozen Sunday morning swimmers reported that Streeter Pond is warm enough to swim in, but watch out for all the slimy vegetation on the entrance ramp.  We even recruited a new member along the way – welcome to the team, Amy!  The only casualties this year were several inner-tubes and potentially Aaron’s bottle of Blueberry Moonshine!  More photos are available in the FB Training Weekend 2013 album.  What a great start to the season!
