But really, when so much of your time and mental and physical energy go toward planning for training, training, planning for racing, and racing, it’s a heavy blow when injury forces you to revise an entire season of racing.

We are aware of two other women who also appear to be heading for "Rookie of the Year" nominations.

They are:

- ALLIE NOWAK, 27, Plymouth (photo)- According to her FB page, Allie is a Physician Assistant (OBGYN) who attended Cornell College, where she ran track and cross country, and has been to London and Washington. She's married and loves small dogs.

Her 2016 Tri Resume: 5th @ Liberty Half & 10th @ Buffalo Olympic. To secure a ROY nomination, Allie needs 1-2 more impressive performances this season....
