Athletes Take on IM California 70.3!

Some impressive results coming out of Oceanside this weekend to kick off the season!  Regulars at M2 took home some PR's and some hardware to boot!  Nothing like some nasty weather to bring out the best in you as there was cold temperatures in the air, and the water, to compliment the light rain that left a film of grime on you bike to make it look like a warzone out there crossing Camp Pendleton.

Kyle Welch fresh off his IM New Zealand race taking a win in the M50-54 division
Dan Ross finding some redemption to an injury shortened 2011 with a podium 4th place M30-34 and Vegas spot
Kahn WU took 15 minutes off his bike split from 2011 and finished 13th in M30-34.  He also had a sub 30 minute swim which was amazing given the conditions and waves entering the harbor.
Brett Miller coming off his injury and finishing 9th in M35-39
Faith Bolliger put together a great full race and finished 9th in her division too!

Full results from Ironman

Congratulations on a great race to the rest of the M2'ers out there as well.  Lindsey Kasnick, Michael Caughlan, Bita Sistani, Lauren Skinner, Evan Lieginger, Renee Shaening, Dierdre Geary, PJ Gallagher, and Ryan Long.  Sorry if I forgot anyone.  It was a tough day out there an everyone should be proud of their early season result and use it to plan and motivate for the rest of the season.

p.s. Skinner, aren't you supposed to be a swimmer?
