Another weekend and a few more podiums to add to the list of accomplishments of our 2010 Team TriSports! Last weekend team members Leanda Cave, Kara Middendorf, Karin Bivens, Amy Regan, and Christina Edwards made their way to Clearwater, Florida for the 2010 Ironman 70.3. World Championship.
Tucson’s favorite local pro Leanda Cave showed how tough she is by being named Vice 70.3. World Champion (second place) just 2 weeks after her win at Miami’s 70.3, and her 10th place finish in Kona. Leanda will be wrapping up her season this weekend up in Tempe at Ironman Arizona!
Super speedy and always adorable age-grouper Kara Middendorf came in third place for the 30-34 year old ladies. After the swim Kara had her work cut out for her and biked/ran her way from 45th place to 3rd, “The run was perfect…four good hills to break things up, and a lot of cow bell…what else do you need?! I felt strong the entire run, so I couldn’t have asked for anything more.”
Karin Bivens was 4th in the 65-59 female age group, Amy Regan was 7th for women 45-49, and Christina Edwards was 37th for women 30-34.
This weekend the TriSports crew is heading up to Ironman Arizona to cheer on our team from aid station #7 on the run course. Athletes racing this weekend include Leanda Cave, Torsten Able, Ali and Joel Rutledge, Craig Sheckler, Josh Winter, Chrissy Parks, Ian Mikelson, Jenifer Garner, and Matt Grabau!
