Fleet Feet Racing this Weekend

Who is Racing this weekend? August 21-23, 2009 With the temperatures in Northern Alabama still at brutally hot levels, the road racing scene is fairly non-existent. This will change in the weeks to come with Running of the Bulls and then Monte Sano Road Races. That said, Greg Reynolds is our best triathlete and will be contesting two events this upcoming weekend. On Saturday, August 22, he will compete in Tuscaloosa, AL at the USAT Age Group National Championship. Then on Sunday, Greg will compete in the Rocketman Triathlon here in Huntsville, AL. Rocketman is directed fellow race team member James Falcon. Dink Taylor makes his return to Leadville, Colorado to have another shot at the Leadville Trail 100 mile run. This year Dink will be paced late in the race by fellow teammate and veteran ultra runner Rob Youngren. Also on Saturday, Eric Charette will be running in the Inaugural Marquette Trail 50km in Marquette, MI. Marquette is along the Lake Superior shoreline and just a short drive from Eric's hometown. Wish all of our team members this weekend in races and training.
