Happy Monday everyone! We hope you all had a fantastic weekend. We sure did. It was back to back racing and our cheering/spectating skills were put to the test. Fortunately, we’ve had a lot of cheering practice this year and we came in to the weekend well prepared. We knew better than to trust the online tracker for most of the races and instead, we counted on our network of friends who were onsite at many of the big events to keep us posted on results.
And, wow…what a great results they were. Congratulations to:
Laura Sophiea on her Age Group win and to Melissa Christensen on her PR at Muncie 70.3

Leslie Neff on her Age Group win at the Diamond in the Rough Triathlon

Lisa Holt on her Age Group win at the Muscleman Triathlon
Our good friend Christine Gould on her top 10 finish at Vineman 70.3.
And to Sonja Wieck and Coeur Co-Founder Hailey Manning on going 2, 3 in the 35-39 age group at Vineman 70.3.
One of the many great things about Vineman is the prize - A Bottle of Wine!
Also, it’s a little late but we have to send a shout out to Coeur Pro Kim Schwabenbauer for her recent 3rd place finish at Ironman Coeur D’Alene. If you recall, Jess Smith who is also a Coeur Pro took 3rd at IMCDA the previous year, so we were glad to continue to have representation on the podium at a race that shares part of our name!

Now, we’ve mentioned this in the past, but it’s worth saying again. In our heart of hearts, we hope that everyone wearing Coeur will feel like they are part of the same team. There can be some lonely spots in a race, and we love it when we hear about Coeur girls lifting each other up before, during, and after a race. That's why we particularly love pictures like these

In other news, Kebby has been hard at work in the design studio. Not only did we release a new design (the aptly named Courage Kit) but we’re also in production on some new items including Women’s Cycling Bibs, and new Run Tights. We’re making almost daily trips to the factory and the gear should be out within the next two weeks.
Ok, that's it for now. Thank you to everyone wearing Coeur on the amazing way you all represent endurance sports. We hope you have a great week and we can't wait to do it again next weekend!
Your Friends at Coeur
