70.3 Ironman Texas – Galveston

Congrats to all 20 Finish Strong athletes who conquered the 70.3 Ironman Texas race on Sunday, April 2 in Galveston.  Despite windy conditions, our athletes all persevered and finished the race, including first timers at the half Ironman distance: Cheryl Perry, Alexis Breeze, Yvonne Vandanam, and Hugo Espinosa!  Also, HUGE one hour PR for Byron Moore. Competing as a relay team were Ellen Kurtz-Hammond swim; Adnan Afzal bike; and Ken Page run.  (I couldn’t find relay team results.)
