XTENEX NORTH AMERICA PROUDLY SPONSORS PIP TAYLOR, WHO WINS THE 2009 MEMPHIS IN MAY TRIATHLON!
How did it all go down? Pip gives us the story on her blog. (excerpts below)
“I had a good swim… I felt strong on the bike… As I came into transition I was announced as first woman off the bike and a quick glance behind I couldn’t see anyone else yet so I decided I had some time to settle in and find my run legs. …the first three miles I took pretty easy – just getting comfortable and finding my own rhythm. At the turn around I could see the gap back to 2nd and 3rd but was also starting to feel like I had finally found my run legs and settled into race place rather than cruise pace for the final three miles. I also knew I was still being chased and those girls would not let up!!
It was great to come away with a win (and a very cool trophy) and I think the training benefits of racing will really help in this next block. Plus it was a really fun race – great course, lots of really cool friendly people, really well run and organized and a different and challenging format – I hope to be back there in 2010.”
Congratulations to Pip on her win!
