It was a hot and wet weekend of racing for the athletes of Triathlon Training with Amy. First up Friday night with the annual Blessing of the Fleet 10 mile road race. A notoriously hard race to run due to the time of day, humidity and heat from the road. Jillian Schneider continues to race with speed and determination finishing 10th overall woman, 2nd in the 30-39 age group with a time of 1:09.00. Lisa Garzilli placed 17th in the 40-49 age group in a time of 1:21:45, and Leslie Battle placed 20th. in the 40-49 age group with a time of 1:22:38. It was a very hot and humid night as always at the Blessing.
