Look out 70.3 World Championships, here comes Jeri Howland!

Team Director Jeri Howland recently qualified for the 70.3 World Championships by winning her age division with an impressive third victory at Lake Stevens 70.3 race. Don't count her out on September 9 in Las Vegas; she's hit the podium three times at the Long Course World Championships.

Race day at Lake Stevens 70.3 was cold, wet and windy. Jeri was first of the ladies in white caps coming out of the 1.2 mile swim; the new 56 mile bike course proved to be especially technical with the rain; but she held her ground eventually capturing the age group win by over 13 minutes to her nearest competitor. The cooler temperatures, she agrees, suited her well although it took 4 miles to feel her feet on the run!
