Cobb Mobb - Month of March

With triathlon season in full swing for 2015 - the Cobb Mobb continued picking up steam in the racing season.

For most of North America, the triathlon season officially kicks off with Ironman California 70.3 in Oceanside, Ca.  The Cobb Mobb was there with three racers and the team director, Dana Rucker. Jeff Lam, JT Peebles, and Conrad Young all represented the Mobb at the race.  Jeff posted a 5:11:12 race time, with JT at 5:11:35, and Conrad coming in at 6:55:59 (with a broken toe!).

The Cobb Mobb also had a presence at HITS Ocala - taking home two age group awards in the process!

Nick Matthews took 2nd in his age group with a 5:14:44

Michael Krishner had a 13:14:32 to take 1st Place in his age group

Also, at Ironman Monterrey 70.3 - two of our Cobb Mobb athletes made the trip down south to compete and put in some fantastic race times!

Mark Saroni set a PR for the 70.3 distance in his first pro race of the season with a 4:05:30.

Carlos Torres (here with Mark Saroni) also put in a fast time with a 4:48:14
At the New Orleans Triathlon - the Cobb Mobb has a pair of athletes on the podium as well.

Lauren Lewis took first female overall.

Jeremy Hebert placed 3rd in his age group.
Throughout the month, Cobb Mobb athletes were having a huge showing with great results and races in everything from 5ks to ultramarathons to triathlons of all distances!

Luis Bonilla ran a 46:45 in the Minute Maid Park 10k.
Sean Kwiatek took 1st place in his age group at the PlayTri Luck of the Irish Triathlon.
Sharon and Jimmy Deane both raced at the Knoxville Marathon.  Sharon ran a 2:14:46 in the half and Jimmy ran a 4:17 on the full.

Both represented the Cobb Mobb during the race!
Steve Ford finished 5th in his age group at the Save-A-Senior 5k.
Leslie Martin Stelpflug raced her way to a 4th place age group finish at the Rock N Roll half Marathon in Dallas.
Matthew Vance took 2nd in his age group and 4th overall at the No Label Sprint Triathlon in Katy, Tx.

Erin Klegstad took 3rd in her age group at the Hot Dash 10 Mile race.

Liz Baugher rode this awesome machine and it's awesome pink Cobb saddle to a 7th Overall at the Los Olas International.
Nichole Nuccio also took home a first place age group finish and 3rd overall at the Sunrise Duathlon!

 Outside of racing - there was still a lot going on with the Cobb Mobb whether it be through training, running/triathlon events, seminars, or group rides.  Even when we're not racing, the Cobb Mobb is always pushing the boundaries and getting better and better!

Cobb Mobb pro Thomas Gerlach got in a climb on Mt Lemmon with the Timex team while preparing for his pro debut for 2015.  For me, I'm not nearly as interested in the climb as I am in that cookie in the bottom left corner - YUM!

The Cobb Mobb was in full effect through spin/cycling classes throughout the month.  Seen here is Sarah Hankla, Kat Vann Hammers, Seth Cooke, Rachel Olson, Clay Emge, and Nathan and Ashley Lesniewski.

In an example of giving back to the community, John Cobb got to have some fun with a host of children at the East Texas Triathlete Run Clinic.

Rachel Olson took the time from her busy training/racing schedule to teach a clinic on triathlon at Sportsspectrum.

Kathy Harris was very happy to get a JOF 55 on her bike to get some training in during March.

Chris Morelock, who has been on injured reserve all year, manage to get some training in on Zwift.  No word as of yet as to whether he was really on a Big Wheels while training or not.

Our "deerest" of couples - Ryan and Cori Moore -  got in a beautiful run in the countryside.
