Congratulations to all area athletes, especially those MFIT athletes Mandi Twist, Pam Paterson and Julie Dixon who competed this past weekend at the Legends Free State Triathlon at Clinton Lake in Lawrence, KS. For Mandi and Pam, it was their first attempt at a 70.3 race on what would prove to be a very hot, windy and hilly course! I am very proud of both women who fought through the tough conditions and successfully completed the race! This year, Julie Dixon competed in the 70- aqua-bike and finished 2nd overall for both male and female competitors. Great race ladies and thanks for giving me the opportunity to help you along the way!
