PANAMA 70.3 - Heather Lendway collected $6500 for her 3rd place finish at Panama 70.3 this morning. The race was the 2016 Pan American 70.3 Championships.
Heather and eventual winner Sarah Haskins came out of the water together, HL then outbiked Haskins and everyone else (2:12:43!) in the women's field. A third of the way through the run, Haskins claimed the lead. Lisa Roberts, thanks to the fastest run split of the day for the women, managed to overtake Heather, but only by six seconds.
Heather's bronze medal time was an amazing 4:10:41, a Minnesota state record (pending verification of distances), eclipsing Ruth Brennan Morrey's old mark of 4:13:46 at Kansas 70.3 in 2014.
