On Saturday Oct 8th
Our friends from PBM Coaching had a great day at the Ironman World Championship collecting 3 top 10s. Awesome job for Coach Kurt and crew! Many other friends from the Boston Tri Team, BPC and more also competed most with great days!

Worth noticing, Craig Alexander won his 3rd IM World Title (2nd World title within weeks) and broke the world record with an impressive race. Chrissie Wellington won her 4th IM World title in a close race wtih Mirinda Carfrae

At Providence Cyclocross festival Day 1, both Noah Manacas and Carrie Mosher had their revenge from Wednesday and posted solid showings, Noah had his best result yet with a top 50% and Carrie followed with a top 50% as well. Each race they get better ad better.
