Age Grouper of the Week
John D, of Epic Camp fame, sent through this weeks age grouper. Here’s what he said: I have two friends that are husband and wife that did the race with me. I was inspired by the wife's performance. Kathryn Clayton had absolutely no athletic background unless you count cheer leading in high school and college. Her life is very busy like most triathletes. She is the mother of two young children and runs the family business. She did her first triathlon about 3 1/2 years ago so that she could be part of the world that her husband Kevin Clayton was/is so passionate about. She started with Olympic and Sprint races and worked up to a 1/2 IM last year. Her goal for her first IM was 13 hours. She did 12:57 in very difficult condition last Sunday. I witnessed a lot of very fit people and experience triathletes finish after 13 hours.

Website of the Week
Roman Mica from www.everymantri.com sent though this weeks website, here’s what he wrote: Boulder, Colorado April 3, 2008 --- What does a 23-year-old Colorado college student, a 47-year-old financial planner, a 37-year-old mother of three, and a 9-year-old elementary school student have in common?
They all recently swam, biked, and ran their birthday along with dozens of
other athletes from around the world.
Imagine celebrating your health, and your fitness on your birthday by swimming, running, and biking your age. That's exactly what athletes are doing as part of the new raceAthlete B-Fit B-Day Challenge. The athletes take their age and:
1) Swim the number of miles in the first number
2) Run the number of miles in the second number
3) Bike the number of miles in the combined number
So a 45-year-old athlete would:
1) Swim 4 miles
2) Run 5 miles
3) Bike 45 miles
