And we're off! The BUTTs had a fantastic kickoff to the start of the NECTC fall season last weekend. While we didn't travel all the way to West Point's corner to race the official collegiate race, we still had an awesome time locally.
At the Cranberry Triathlon Festival, we had current members, Stephanie Lie, Natalie Tukan and Ellen Witkowski reunite with alumni, Tess Timmes, and Carolyn Harper, dominating the scene. Stephanie placed 1st in her age group, and Ellen and Natalie placed 2nd and 3rd in theirs!
At the same time, we had two BUTTs brave the woods of Killington, Vermont at the Under Armour Mountain Running Series. Merissa Brousseau, finishing a marathon, and Lindsey Wilcox, completing a half marathon, came back home craving pizza, mac 'n cheese and pints of Ben and Jerry's.
Finally, Sarah Savoy raced the Falmouth 5k with her family and had an awesome race!
We have lots to look forward to this season. Stay tuned for more BUTT adventures and racing!
