Congratulations to Lois who won the women’s division this past weekend at the Kauai Loves You Sprint Triathlon with a time of 1:16:56. The sprint distance consists of a 750 meter swim, 20k bike and 5k run. Her training partner, John Grout, beat out all the other competitors to finish 1st overall with a time of 1:05:09.
It was an especially poignant race since the two winners raced for their injured friend, Daniel Velasco. The Kauai Loves You Triathlon dedicated the race to Daniel, a former champion, who was recently injured in a hang gliding accident. Daniel was (and will be again) an amazing athlete and has a long road of recovery ahead of him. To help Daniel or to view updates, please check out his blog http://www.danielvelasco.info/.
Way to go Lois!
