Heather Surrency        4th Female 40-44 Triathlon          2:48:12
Brice Gyurisko            1st Male Military Triathlon           2:57:59

We want to recognize Brice's determination to finish the race.  Both of his eyes became chemical burned during or after the swim and then both cornea's became scratched yet he continued on through the bike and run, half blind.  What an example of will power (don't try this at home ;)

Also, our very own Jim Diaz competed in the Great Floridian Intermediate length triathlon last weekend and felt great.  He had been training for the Augusta 70.3 but registration had just closed before he signed up.  So he signed up to take on the hills of Clermont, including Sugar Loaf, and finished 4 miles short of the 1/2 IM distance in 7 hours with very little pain.  Awesome performance Jim!


Stay tuned for the Blanchard Park Y Tri team's Winter season as we take on the OUC 1/2 marathon and start setting goals for the 2012 season.

What a weekend!  Augusta 70.3 Ironman will be a race that will never be forgotten.  Congratulations to the 13 people who conquered this distance.  The swim was downstream and wetsuit legal (BIG BONUS).  The bike course had beautiful rolling hills that led our ride from Georgia into South Carolina.  And the 13.1 mile run was filled with family, friends, and spectators cheering us all along the hot (92 degrees) course.  We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful race.

I'm very proud of each and every athlete from our team that participated.  I'm even more pumped about the support that I saw from our team that didn't race as each of us heard amazing words of encouragement from each of you.  It helped each one of us finish this race up until the last mile.  You were all running through our heads as we knew that you were home cheering for us.  Augusta was a weekend that will not be forgotten and it was a victory that will go down in the books.  ;)  All of you took on the challenge and came out in the end as champions.  Never forget this race.  And never forget that we are "powered by God!"  It's through His making that we can tell others about a race that seems impossible but in the end we believed and came out victorious!  Now that it's over....GO EAT!!!!  ;)

The 2nd annual Roy McConnell Mango Triathlon was held last weekend in honor of our fallen teammate.

Photobucket
What a great weekend we had racing in memory of Roy and his boys.  It is races like this that really bring our team closer together and allow us to spend quality time with each other.  There was so much encouragement, what an amazing team to be a part of.  With so many racing and cheering, we really showed the McConnell family the support and love we have for them.  And as the years pass, more athletes will race who did not know Roy.  But we will continue to carry him in our hearts and share what he was about with others.

And the results I was able to find are as follows ... (let me know if I missed anyone)

I am seriously slow about getting the results up and I apologize profusely.

Photobucket
The Jacksonville Sprint Tri was awesome.  What a fun race!  We had a great turnout from our Blanchard Park team and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.  The race was a 1/4 mile swim in the ocean.  The rollers were reasonably big but ok to swim in.  The breakers weren't too hard to get through.  There was a long run up the beach but transition was right there so it was not that bad either.  The bike course was a long flat 16 miles. Definitely a good ride for strong bikers.  The run was through some residential neighborhoods but there was not much wind and even less shade so it was quite warm.  Overall a very fun race!
