Murray rounds a corner with a great view of the Jefferson Memorial

Here is a quick weekly roundup of the recent accomplishments of Newton athletes. Hope you had as good a weekend as we did!

Ian Murray competed in the Olympic Distance SC Triathlon, his first tri since returning from Afghanistan. He finished 2nd in the 30-34 age group and 15th overall. His best part of the race was the run—he posted a 36:29 10k.

Roy Pirrung became the first American to finish the Ultrabalaton, a 212k race around Lake Balaton in Tihany, Hungary. Despite back spasms and falling off of his bike several times, he finished in 34 hours, an admirable feat.

Also a big congrats to Wendy Mader, who finished 2nd in last weekend’s Boulder Sprint tri with a time of 1:18:11.

Any PRs for the rest of you this weekend?
