SET Coaching Athletes have a Successful June!

Cora Sturzl, a long time athlete with SET Coaching, has just gotten back into the ring after some time off working on an injury.  We have been dealing with a running injury for the last few months.  Cora has worked hard at changing her running from and working on a solid foundation for the rest of her season (which includes Duathlon Worlds).  In her first race back Cora took 1st in her age group and 7th overall female!  Way to go Cora!

Stephen Ettinger is coming off of one of the best Junes he has had in recent memory.  Stephen has been working withSET since he was 16 yrs old.  Early this month Stephen, who races professionally for Team Mafia, came home for a little R & R after his trip to Europe with the National U23 team.  Stephen raced the local Bike and Brews bash in Leavenworth and won by over 7 min!  Three weeks later Stephen lined up at the Subaru Cup Norba XCT at the Wisconsin Off Road Series and took 13th against the best competition in the country.  This is setting up Stephen perfectly for the U23 National Championships coming up in July which is a big focus of his training.

Sara Barkley is also continuing her dominant ways.  Sarah raced the first race in the Tri N.W. series races at the Walla Walla Onion Man in late May taking second place overall.  This was Sarah’s first triathlon about 5 years ago so it is exciting to see how far she has come.  Sarah has been racing locally in the tri cites and taking first place in the Fiasco in Pasco Duathlon as well as the Righteous Richland Sprint triathlon.   She also placed top 5 at the highly competitive Pacific Crest Olympic Triathlon.  Sarah is steadily making progress toward her main goals. 

More to come!
