Greater Atlantic Multisport Series
For the fourth year in a row we came in second place in the club championship series with 885 points. That was truly a great team effort and we more than doubled our points from last year. Team Brick came in first again with 1006 points. The two mini sprints they hosted this year counted towards team points and they scored 289 points on those two races alone. We scored 2.75 points per entry and TB scored 2.55 points per entry. There were over 150 teams that participated. Congratulations to everyone who helped us have another successful year.

On an individual level we also did very well. The following scored in the top 5 (let me know if I missed your name).

Carbo Loading 
Many of us are doing half or full marathons this fall. Here is a good article on carbo loading the right way.

Ironman Hawaii World Championships
This was another amazing experience in such a beautiful setting. I wish everyone could experience the final two hours of the race as the crowds cheer in the final triathletes leading up to the midnight cutoff. It's one huge block party and celebration. Marianne and I had a great time with Lenny, Cindy, my son and daughter-in-law and grandaughter. Mike and Brian Welch and their wives joined us one evening for dinner and good times. I'll try to get some pictures up on the website within the next week. Marianne and Mike had stellar races in very challenging conditions. That course will push anyone's limits. Lenny, Cindy and I rode our bikes out on the run course after dark and it was a great experience being out there and watching the triathletes digging down with everything they had to finish the race. I believe there will be something on TV next Saturday.
