Flat, Not So Flat and Tri: A Weekend in Volte, USA

Flat, not so flat and splash and dash were the themes involving our Volte athletes who competed this past weekend.

Katy was the scene of a hot, inaugural Watermelon Dash 5K and 10K on Saturday in the Cane Island area.

And Lillian Evans’ effort in the 5K left it a bit hotter.

Defeating the next closest master’s finisher by 30 seconds, Lillian was the fourth overall female and first overall master’s female to cross the finish line, doing so in 24:59.

From 141 feet above sea level to 9,097 is where Erica Coleman picked things up later in the morning.

She ran the Run The Rockies Trail Half Marathon, produced by the town of Frisco, Colorado, which included 250 feet of climbing from miles 5 to 9 – and then coming back down in the next two.

Erica was fourth in her age group, just missing third by less than a minute (50 seconds, to be exact), as she stopped the clock in 2:32:32.

Former The Woodlands Running Club runner Sydney Zywicki, who used to live here in the area with her husband, Ben, was the third overall female in the 10K in 54:13.

Back on the east coast on Sunday, August 11, Dana Formon returned home to Morrisville, North Carolina after receiving her Ph.D. from Sam Houston State University and competed in the Rex Healthcare Wellness Sprint Triathlon in Raleigh.

Dana was third in her age group in 1:07:18.

She swam the 250-yard in Rex Wellness’ lap pool in less than six minutes, biked a 10-mile course that featured some “nice flats and a few small climbs” in 40:41 and finished with a two-mile run through the northernmost parts of Wake County in 18:01.

Great job ladies – and thanks for representing Volte so well!
