On April 23, 2016 Katie Palavecino competed in the Richmond Tri Club Sprint Triathlon and earned the honor of occupying the top of the podium by finishing 1st among all female competitors with a time of 1:03:19!
Katie attributed her success to her coach, consistently attending barre classes, and a fear of transition police. You can find her full race report here; it’s certainly worth a read!
A little more than a month late, she competed–and won–the Salute to the Military Tri in Bristow with a time of 1:02:37! Congratulations Katie and thanks for these awesome race reports! Rade the Salute Tri one here.
