Newton Running is proud to support some of the world's best triathletes like Craig Alexander, but we also have an amazing team of amateur and semi-pro triathletes across the globe. In what we hope will become a regular feature, here are some of Team Newton's recent results.
Tatiana Vertiz raced the schwag-filled IronGirl 10K in Del Mar CA, finishing third overall and first in the 20-24 age group with a time of 40:22.
XTERRA specialist Rachel Cieslewicz had an uber weekend of training and racing starting with the 5k Law Day on the University of Utah campus, followed by a hard core hill climbing day on the bike and a Sunday morning 22 miler training run. Perfect weekend for her half marathon next weekend in the La Sportiva Mountain Cup race series.
Triathlete Anthony Lee was 15th overall last weekend at the REV 3 Triathlon in Knoxville in the Half Ironman distance, running a 1:26 half marathon at the end of a very tough bike for a total time 4:51. This weekend, Anthony was 2nd in the duathlon race at the Cascade Lake Triathlon, finishing the 3-mile run, 15-mile bike and 3-mile run in a time of 1:15.
Joe McDaniel took second place at the Littlefoot Triathlon in Morrison, Colo. on Sunday - a great way to start his race season.
On May 1, Julia Eyer raced the Avia Wildflower Triathlon, a very competitive California race with thousands of athletes competing in Sprint, Olympic and Half Ironman distances. Julia placed first among under 16 year old females and fifth overall in the Sprint distance for a fantastic win.
And Nato Amarl raced in the International Sao Paulo Marathon in Brazil.
*Update* Guy Petruzzelli had what can only be described as a burly weekend of racing at the Starkerman Challenge in Michigan (4 events in 3 Days) On Friday he placed 2nd in the 5K run with a time of 15:32. Saturday morning there was a reverse triathlon which he won (4.4 mile run, 20 mile bike, 400 meter swim) Later that same afternoon, he won a 40K bike time trial on a "nasty, hilly course." His weekend finished with a 5K/30.5K duathlon, in which he finished 5th.
Nick Stanoszek raced the Orlando 70.3 and placed 7th in his age group.
