Women of Achievement Awards
Coach Kristen was able to attend the Women of Achievement Awards. It was an inspiring night filled with some amazing women. She was nominated but like so many others didn’t win an award. It was an honor to be involved and apart of such an amazing group. Kristen, you are an inspiration to us all at WOL.
Diva Half Marathon
Lauren Stephenson is at it again! She finished this half with race prepping in mind and accomplished that goal. You are killing it and are so mentally strong right now. Way to try gear, play with pacing, and figure out a plan for this upcoming Half Ironman M2M. Keep it up girl! And of course, Lauren’s training buddy didn’t disappoint, as Anna Maltby joined her for a super fun race! The ladies got their boas, tiaras and are some true Divas and Rockstars!
Congratulations to Melanie Meadows for stepping out of her comfort zone a bit and doing something really cool for her. Jumping into the Mosquito 10K as a training run for Raleigh, she smiled and laughed the entire way. It is so great to see your big smile!!!! Raleigh here we come.

The Awesome Austin Rockstars were at it again! At the Rookie Sprint Tri these 3 Rockstars PR’ed by over 27 minutes. Logan Bonathan posted a strong showing and broke the Top 10 with an 11 min PR; Michelle Bonathan brought home some goodies with a 3rd AG and her first podium trip AND let’s don’t forget her 11 min PR; Caroline Bloom was still a bit under the weather, BUT crushed her swim and had a 5 min PR!!!!! It was a 300 swim, 11 mile bike and 2 mile run and check out the improvement. These 3 are ready for Tri Season and their spirit and enthusiasm are hard to beat. Super excited for these Terrific Texans!!
Congrats to Beth Greer for taking on a challenge when not able to travel and participate in an “event”. She came up with her own event. Taking on the “Topsail Transverse”. Running the length of the island. 25 miles down and another big accomplishment. Always up for an off road challenge.
