The month of June ended with another age-group podium for one of the longest tenured athletes on the Migonis Multisport team. Joan Kane raced her second Tupper Lake Tinman event held in beautiful Tupper Lake, NY on June 23rd. While the weather didn’t really cooperate for the athletes, raining all race long and cooler temps than the usual 70’s the race sees, that didn’t stop Joan from finishing second in the female 55-59 age-group. Joan’s raced at Tupper twice and has been on the age-group podium both times. Well done Joan!!
The busy racing month of July has started for Migonis Multisport. Michael Robertson got after it right away racing the Challenge Roth event in Roth, Germany over the weekend. The Challenge events are full ironman length races (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run). Michael had the swim of his life, and solid ride and fought through a tough run to set a new PR for the distance finishing in 13:04:10. A good 37+ minutes faster than his first crack at the 140.6 mile race at Ironman Tremblant in 2016. Awesome job Michael!!
On July 8th, Ryan Meek and Jaimee Balloni ran in the 41st Annual Utica Boilermaker Road Race, in Utica, NY. In one of the most interesting results Migonis Multisport athletes have ever had, both Ryan and Jaimee came across the finish line in a time of 1:02:23 good enough for 440 and 444 overall out of the 11,509 finishers in the race. I say it’s interesting because they didn’t run together, didn’t see each other until the end and just happened to finish in the same time. Jaimee was 12th in her age-group and the 50th female to cross the line scoring a big PR for the race, while Ryan was 34th in his ultra-competitive age-group and also brought home a new PR for the tough 15k run. They both had amazing days and once again showed us how strong they both are on the run. Great job Jaimee and Ryan!!!
