Swim, Over-bike, Walk

As triathletes, one of the things we have to wrap our minds around is that triathlon must be treated as one sport and not three separate sports thrown together on one day.   Obviously, there are three disciplines – swimming, biking, and running; but each discipline is approached much differently in a triathlon than as individual sports.

The Carmel Indiana 10K, Half Marathon, and Marathon

Coach Paula and her running buddy/teammate Kelly Powers ran the Carmel Marathon on April 3rd. The marathon is such a tough event. They ran the first half of the race together. In the second half, they both encountered tough patches but pressed on to the finish. Paula finished in 3:53:20 and Kelly in 4:02:10. They were both all smiles at the finish line. This was Paula's personal best on a non-downhill course. This was Kelly's 20th marathon.

Bethanie Roberts ran her first 10K in Carmel Indiana on April 3rd.  She's all smiles nearing the one mile mark on this rather chilly morning.  It was a tough race but she reached her goal of breaking 50 minutes.  Her finish time was 49:34.
