Shelbyville #1: The Hippos Burst Onto The Scene


Two races, two victories for the Lexington Hippos at the first race of the Shelbyville Triathlon Series. Full results here.

Lindsay led from start-to-finish in her first overall win of the season (and career) in a display of the consistent fitness gains she has made over the last several months. Posting the fastest women’s run and the 3rd fastest bike, she set herself up for a “comfortable” final swim to take a 2:30 winning margin to the finish line.

Battling a bit of a leg injury that has hampered her run training over the last few weeks, Rachel had to be a bit conservative in the opening run, but then dropped the hammer on the bike and SMASHED the swim, posting the 5th fastest women’s swim in the race.  Not only did she win her AG, she was 5th overall in the women’s race and almost two full minutes faster than last year!

Go Hippos!
