On Sunday, June 12, NorthEast MultiSport let the New England Triathlon region know that there’s a new big time club in the area. NEMS had 30 members participate in this great event! Despite the forecast calling for lightning, the race conditions ending up being nearly ideal with no rain coming during the race. NEMSers took advantage of this and had an incredible showing. Highlights from the event included Nate Thomas, finishing 3rd overall, which included the fastest bike split of the day. Nicole Caron finished 1st in the 14-16 age group, Colin Cook finished 4th overall, 1st in the 20-29 age group, Nancy Epstein finished first in the 30-39 age group while Kara Andersson took 3rd in the same division, Chris Poulos took 3rd in the 30-39 men’s age group, Michelle Poublon won the 40-49 woman’s age group, Jay Francis took 3rd in 40-49, and Debra Stellato took 2nd in the 50-59 age group. A special shout out to all our first time triathletes including: Melody Miller, Carolanne Caron, and Nicole Caron. Here is a picture of most of our competitors before the race:

Lastly, while most of NEMS was racing at the Nashua Y Tri, Liz Hall was in Maryland racing in the Eagleman Half Ironman. Liz had a great race and finished in 5:01:56, which got her 5th in her age group! That’s on the podium for a big Ironman branded race. Way to go Liz!
