Weekend Recap

June 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

Another weekend packed with BAFF racing. This past weekend we saw athletes take on the Champ Racing Munroe Falls sprint Triathlon, HFP Racing Maumee Bay Triathlon, and BFAST Sprint in Mayport Fl.

Results are in the table below:

Name Race OA Place / Division Place Time
Bill Marut Munroe Falls 1st Overall 0:57:32
Bryan Prack Munroe Falls 10th / 1st 1:02:02
Jeff Ebner Munroe Falls 29th / 7th 1:06:16
Melanie Sudetic Munroe Falls 61st / 3rd 1:11:05
Gary Pitzer HFP Maumee Bay Olympic 19th / 5th 2:21:16

Dustin Thomas HFP Maumee Bay Sprint 2nd / 1st 1:05:14
Nate Loman Mayport Navy Station Sprint 11th / 2nd

Bill Marut took top honors in the Munroe Falls Sprint Triathlon. Bill contributed this:

I managed to take the overall at Munroe Falls. Very grateful!! BAFF did very well, you all are awesome.

Bryan Prack also raced and had this to say:

Munroe Falls- 1st tri of the season for me. Overall happy with the AG win. Didnt seed myself correctly in swim and lost time swimming over people. Guess that happens when you dont swim much in 6 months. Bike was okay, car traffic slowed paces of many. Run felt good.

Jeff, who raced just the previous weekend at the GWRT Half Ironman competed in the sprint race too:

Great race overall.  Very different racing a sprint vs. a half.  Had my best 5k run ever for a short legged T-Rex armed guy and a decent swim.  Props to Gregg G for getting me in the race last minute!  

Our lone female racer this weekend was Melanie Sudetic. She competed at Munroe Falls for her first race of the season and contributed this:

I didn’t do as well as I’d like to due to lack of training, but on the positive side my swim was almost a minute faster than the last time I raced the Munroe Falls tri (in 2012), run felt good, and placed third in AG. Good job to everyone who raced that weekend!

On Sunday, the HFP Maumee Bay races took place. Dustin Thomas competed in the sprint while Patrick Payne and Gary Pitzer raced the Olympic distance.

Gary had this to say about his day:

It was a beautiful Father’s Day at Maumee Bay.  The Olympic swim was a straight line out and back.  Temp was pleasant and no waves in the inland lake.  The bike course was windy as usual.  The run seemed long and painful.  Not sure if it was because it was my first full Olympic tri (I usually just swim, bike and done (aka Aquabike)) or I just need a lot of work on the run. I’ll get back to work when my knee recovers. I was able to meet up with Patrick Payne who had his army of kids donning custom “Run Daddy Run” shirts – very cool on Father’s Day. 

Nate Loman also raced while on his summer vacation down in Florida.  He competed in the BFAST Mayport Sprint Triathlon taking home 2nd in his age group.

Congrats to all our racers and finishers!!
