One of them was Shayne MacLean, who did not let it show by scoring 31 points with two G3s and seven G2s. She earned her G3s by trusting her body’s strength. She plans on improving her grip strength so she can tackle some more G3s in the upcoming Spring event.
Haley Mohn scored 29 points with one G3 and eight G2s. She was happy to have finally figured out how to successfully stick the landing pad on obstacles, a mistake she made at the last event.
Faith Elliott, still all bruised up from the championship obstacles, ended up scoring 27 points with three G3s and four G2s. She challenged herself by moving up to G3 on the Slippery Wall Monkey obstacle where she has settled for G2 in the past; while refusing to move down to a G2 on any obstacle she had previously completed at the G3 level.
Susanna Burger made several improvements and scored 17 points with one G3, one G2, and nine G1s. She missed one obstacle when her gloves slipped off on the Rope Cross. She moved up to a G3 on the Water Carry and a G2 on the Balancing Act.
Derek Rozanski had no grand expectations coming into this race since he was still sore from OCRWC, but he managed to score 23 points with four G3s and one G2. He had the most fun he has had at a Goliathon event simply because he was there for pure fun and not to be competitive. He even goofed off on some of the G3s, but legitimately missed the G3 10' Wall for the very first time.
Eric Zucaro also made his first Goliathon appearance and scored 19 points with two G3s and three G2s. He missed a few of the obstacles due to minor mistakes, which he found humbling, while still having a lot of fun.
Despite their efforts, the team was not able to defend their title, coming in 4th behind three other very strong teams. They look forward to training hard over the next eight months of the off season to come back stronger than ever.
Kyle Vogel, Jim Lasco, and Chrissi Shewchuk also competed with the team.
One of our Crew members, Jennifer Monaco, headed South for the inaugural Spartan Race Atlanta Super which took place in Lake Lanier, GA. The race was set in a beautiful area with a pretty mild course, despite not having the Georgia clay she was expecting. Spartan made good use of the lake by having them in and out of it quite frequently during the race. She did well and placed 6th in her Age Group.
Overall, it turned out to be a great weekend of racing for many members as most found themselves wrapping up their season. Several others do still have a few races to tackle though before their season is officially done for 2017. Great job to those that are done for the season and best of luck to those that still have races through December!
