SOUTHWEST
The USAT Southwest Region is excited to announce the formation of the SW Region Women’s Commission. The genesis for the commission came from council member discussion at the 2013 Annual Meeting and the council’s goals to further serve and enhance the benefits of membership for athletes. The SW Region’s women’s commission aims to inspire, motivate, support and encourage a spirit of camaraderie among female athletes of all ages and fitness levels.


Co-chaired by Sharon Osgood and Melissa Olivas, the women’s commission is enthusiastically planning the details for the commission’s debut gathering to be held in conjunction with the Athleta Irongirl event in Las Vegas on Oct. 26. A special gathering welcoming all athletes will be held on Friday, Oct. 25. Information will be shared about the goals of the women’s commission and how to get involved.


Attendees will be inspired and delighted by motivational words of Sister Madonna Buder slated to be the keynote speaker for the event. Sister Madonna, the world record holder for the oldest person to complete an Ironman distance triathlon, is known throughout the triathlon community for her grace, spirit and trailblazing accomplishments for women in triathlon.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN
Harken back with me to the days of Fiesta Island in San Diego; Scott Tinley, Mark Allen, Dave Scott and Scott Molina. Big bladed glasses, tube socks, waffle-soled running shoes and of course, the Speedo. The pioneering days of triathlon were brought back to life at the kick-off race in the USA Triathlon Retro Series with some of New Mexico’s finest and least-shy triathletes at the Rio Grande Retro Triathlon on April 27 in Albuquerque, N.M.


The race sold out with 400 athletes — a strong showing of youth, beginners and A-list elites all having a rocking good time. On a chilly early spring morning in Albuquerque, athletes gathered to ring in another season. The environment created by Chasing 3 Race Productions allowed the crowd of athletes, families and spectators to simply enjoy multisport in this throwback event. Smiles were abundant and yes, some newbie fans learned that we don’t race in Speedos anymore. Two-time defending New Mexico Open Water Series Champion Clay Moseley even completed the swim in his mullet wig. Despite the drag he still finished an impressive fourth. The 2013 season is underway and C3’s first race in New Mexico will be tough to top.
