2013 Team NEWS
The team started up practices again for the Fall of 2013 and will continue to practice into the 2014 season. We started with some conditioning, running skills, drills and fun mixed in with some biking and transition practice. Workouts are 75 minutes long on Tuesday and Thursdays this Fall. They include a mix of all kinds of activities to help prepare the team to be fit, happy, healthy and strong triathletes:).

Good luck to Team South Florida Lightning this weekend at Iron kid's Florida in Haines City! I am so thrilled and excited to be able to watch Sofia and Hannah race on Saturday! They have been practicing hard and prepared themselves well for this race. Knock em dead:)!
Congrats to Hannah Fowler for her 1st place age group and 10 and under age group division champion at the Miami Kid's Triathlon at FIU on May 5th. The amazing part is that she trained hard for 2 days practicing on the IronKid's course and Regional Heartland Tri course before the race and still managed to race super well and FAST:). Keep up all the hard work and training Hannah!
The girls took a over night road trip on May 3rd and 4th to Haines City to practice on the new Iron Kid's Course at Lake Eva. The course was really different, hilly and more challenging than last year so it was great to practice on it twice and work on those downhill and uphill transitions. We had a great time riding it, and will pay off on race day. We also stopped at Sebring on the way home and road the Regional Senior bike course and checked out the course by car for the Talent ID Series that will take place after Youth Regionals. Fun trip filled with lots of valuable training.
Welcome to Allison Beckerman! Allison is 12 years old and wanted to train for a triathlon like her father. She has done a great job jumping right in there for practice.
Congrats to Hannah Fowler for her 3rd place overall in the 11 and under division at Meek and Mighty Triathlon on April 27th! She had some difficulties with her registration so was not sure if she would be able to race until the last minute...which was tough, but raced hard and still did well! Congrats Hannah!
Congrats to Mia Simon and Hannah Fowler for their outstanding performance in the Deerfield Beach Extreme Aquathon on April 20th! Hannah was the overall winner for the 9 and under division and Mia was 4th in the same division. They both looked super strong and had a lot of fun!
Welcome to Mia Simon! Mia is 9 years old and is interested in learning and competing in a few races this summer. We are looking forward to having her as part of the team!
Congrats to Hannah Fowler who came in 2nd place overall female and 2nd in the 10-11 year old category at the Star Kids Triathlon. She also had the fastest transitions for all the girls. All the transition practice really paid off:). Way to go Hannah.
Congrats to 15 year old Sofia on her 4th place finish at the Talent ID Series race in Fort Desoto for the 15-19 category. She was super excited to improve her time and standing from the F1 race just a few weeks ago. All the hard work is paying off. Way to go Sofia:).
Great Spring Break Mini Tri Camp for Sofia and Hannah! We hit the hills for some hill training at Vista View, did bike to run repeats, worked on transitions, had a nice lunch at Tree Tops Park, then on to Deerfield to practice some tri specific swimming. Fun Day! They worked hard and did great!
