The Howling -- Wolfpack Weekly Update (Mon, Feb 13 to Sun, Feb 19)
Updated: May 15
HOWLS Very happy to share that both Warhorse and Drago qualified for the 2023 IronMan World Championships in Nice, France!!!!!!!! Anthony Booth and Evan Vaughn competed at IronMan Wisconsin in the worst weather conditions I have ever seen. Freezing cold, rain, and wind. As many of the Wolfpack were on the course observing, we felt bad for being frustrated with our racers for being behind schedule as we were getting so cold! :) I always say that I was so happy to see Warhorse "have his day". At Mile 18, Boothy was being swept up by the Darkness Demons (complete with the black eyes) and Skeletor, his training partner, was able to pull him out of it to get him to finish strong, placing 8th M45-49. Drago persisted onward, after spending an hour on the side of the road on the bike course with a mechanical issue, to close out his day, with a sub-4 hour marathon to place 8th in M18-24! Although Warhorse is sticking with his plans to race 2023 IronMan Maryland, Drago will be competing and, as he is a 22 year old in the midst of opening up his new business in Colorado, F45 Training Arvada Ridge, he did post a Fund Me in an effort to get some help getting there. Drago - Taking another shot to get your pro card I see... :)
WELCOME NEW PACK MEMBERS!
Very excited to welcome two new members to the Wolfpack who both have big red letter "A" next to IronMan 70.3 Happy Valley!
Jay Lynch, at 66 years old, had no choice to sign up for the race as he lives in Happy Valley, so he is excited to be joining the Pack. He just got his brand new Road Bike (Specialized Tarmac SL6) and a Zwift Hub; and, is going through that fun onboarding process we all like so much!
Mark Regester, 45 years old, lives in New Jersey and got connected with the Wolfpack as he swims Masters with Skeletor and Tara.
Please drop a note to welcome the new Pups to the Wolfpack!
