Massive shout out to member Sara Markuson who took 2nd place in the MT Women’s Triathlon in Helena! A competitive triathlete when she came to 5 Valleys she had been forced to reduce her normal training due to some ongoing IT band problems. She has been working hard at the gym while being smart about her triathlon training so as not to overdo it. It looks like it is paying off!
Here is what she had to say:
“While you guys were crushing it at your hosted comp, I was competing in Helena. I just wanted to let you know that I believe the overall fitness I’ve gained from CrossFit assisted me in taking 2nd place overall at the MT Women’s Triathlon in Helena over the weekend. As you know, the issues I’ve had with my IT bands has limited my ability to train at the level of intensity I usually would. I wasn’t sure how my race would go because of the reduction in my regular training. I executed a solid race, and attribute much of my success this weekend to the strength gains I’ve made in the gym. You have a stellar team of coaches and I have learned an immense amount from my time at 5 Valleys.”
Way to go Sara!!!
