July wrap-up

Boulder, CO
Boulder Peaks –
Boulder, Colorado, the breeding ground for triathlon, hosted its Olympic distance last weekend. In attendance were world champions, Olympians, up-and-coming stars and everything in-between.
Boulder resident Mary Beth Ellis took on the packed field and once again came up big with the win. Mary Beth annihilated the field crossing the line in 2:07:31, a full four minutes ahead of Juli Dibens who finished second.  Mark another one off the list for Mary Beth, she is on a rampage this year!

Racine, WI
Spirit of Racine –
Local Wisconsin athlete and long time Timex athlete, Blake Becker, scored the biggest win of his career this past weekend at Spirit of Racine, a half Ironman distance race held in Racine, Wisconsin. Blake’s finishing time of 3:54:04 was not only good enough to put him atop the leader board but placed him a full 6 minutes and 54 seconds ahead of runner up Jeff Paul. In third place behind Paul was another Timex athlete and Wisconsin resident, Mike Lavery.

Lake Placid, NY
Ironman Lake Placid –
Tamara Kozulina and Dave Harju came out of the swim in Lake Placid this year on fire, both looking to finish their days on the podium. In the end only one of them was able to go the distance.  Situated at roughly mile marker 30 on the bike course was a sharp 90 degree turn. The roads were slippery from the morning rain and when Dave’s front tire rolled across the white painted line as he took the corner, down he went.Bleeding and in a great deal of pain, Dave jumped back on the bike and stormed back into contention but his efforts were short lived as he would eventually pull out of the race half way through the run. Tamara had better luck than Dave, managing to stay on her bike for the full 112 miles. Off the bike she found herself in 4th position. Gutting through a leg injury, Tamara eventually finished the day off in 4th place overall, just behind former 70.3 World Champ and Olympian, Samantha McGlone.  Look for a strong showing from Dave at Ironman Louisville in August. He will be seeking revenge for the mishap in Placid.
Both Dave and Tamara will compete at the Ironman World Champs in Kona this year.

Congrats Team Timex!!
