off didn’t it?? Barbara Kerby placed 3rd overall with the number one female bike split (duh) in the women’s race and
Megan “Mad Dawg” Davis placed 6th! Tara High and Pete Prichard both won Grand Masters, and interestingly, they both
turned 50 only two days apart in July! Kevin Verrett placed 2nd in a very competitive age group, as did Paige Tanner and Dawn Nolte. Leonard Vergunst won his age group (no surprise there) even with a bad
bike wreck 3 days before the race!
We had a few mishaps this year, with Matt Storr getting a flat tire about 10 miles into what was shaping up to be a very fast bike leg. Props to Matt for getting a ride to t2, and finishing the run course! Clayton Lamar Legear found an incredibly productive way to reduce his swim split! Amy Hunt also had a bike malfunction (she blames her husband) and was unable to go any further than the swim portion. But she did arrive to the fairgrounds with an ice chest full of beer... Which she carried through the mud for over a mile!!! What a team player!! Chris Kerby had a scary skid and fall on the bike course but he is ok and still completed the race “faster than me” – David Sullivan. The post race gathering was fun…they provided ice cold towels, showers, pizza
and all the Diet Dew and peaches Sully could wish for!
In interesting news: Allen Stanfield made his teammates spend 45 minutes looking for his “missing” wallet. Kevin Self said a cuss word. Megan Davis projectile vomited her way down the finish chute (lovely) as Kevin Verrett
snapped photos. Amy Hunt learned that not all roads are four-laned. Jeremy Tanner can fit a king sized sheet into his shorts cargo pockets. A female finisher was proposed to when she crossed the finish line. (We hope Megan didn’t photo bomb her special moment.) Kevin Verrett hasn’t been seen not wearing the Heart o’ Dixie Trucker hat since he
finished the race. Also, if you’ve never seen David Sullivan finish a race, it’s amazing-you must see it!
If you haven’t tried this race, put it on the schedule for next year…it is a good one! Continue on with your training bombers, and see you soon!
Lots of races coming up, Duathlon in Mobile, San Destin, Possum Town, and Du it at Danny’s as well as a few GCRC races. We should have a good presence at all!
Congrats to all TTB Finishers:
