Another 100 Day Challenge and Some 5k Racing 5k Road Races
02/09/2017 » Cazenovia, NY, Liverpool, NY » Event Website
Congratulations to Ryan Elliott who became the latest member of the Migonis Multisport team and second team member this year to complete the 100 day bike challenge. His teammate, Ryan Meek completed the challenge earlier in the winter.
Ryan rode his bike for at least 60 minutes each day for 100 days in a row. These rides were done in addition to other triathlon workouts each week. With a very busy work schedule Ryan was often doing his rides late at night sometimes getting off just minutes before the 11:59 pm deadline. Well done Ryan and congratulations again!
During his 100 days Ryan did plenty of running as well. He even toed the line at the 13th Annual Chilly Chili 5k in Cazenovia, NY in late January. Ryan took advantage of a great weather day for CNY in January and ran a very solid 5k time of 20:26 which put him 29th overall and third in his age-group in a field of over 700 racers. Ryan is currently training for Ironman Lake Placid in July and was surely not training for a 5k in January, which made his great time and place in a very deep and competitive field even more impressive. Great job Ryan!
This past weekend saw two more Migonis Multisport athletes brave the CNY mid-winter weather to race a 5k. Kristin Mullally and Ryan Meek both raced the 7th Annual Syracuse Track Club Super Couch Potato 5k at Onondaga Lake in Liverpool, NY. Kristin came across the line in a time of 24:07 which was 99th overall and 3rd in here age-group. Like Ryan Elliott, Kristin is racing Ironman Lake Placid in July and was running this race as part of her training. In fact, this race was done in the middle of her long run. She ran 7+ miles before the race, ran the race and then ran even more afterwards. Dedication at its finest. Great job Kristin.
Ryan Meek raced very well too. He came across the line in 12th place overall in 19:20 and was first in his age-group. Ryan is taking a break from racing Ironman’s this season and is concentrating on some shorter racing and 70.3’s. This was a great opportunity for Ryan to test the legs and he didn’t disappoint winning the Masters Division in his first road race in that category. Awesome job Ryan.
