Ted Wins Again!


TED TREISE did not set a 70.3 personal best yesterday in toasty Waco, Texas. But he might have, had the swim not been canceled. His 3:37:34 over the 69.1 mile distance put him more than two minutes ahead of rest of the men's amateur field. Had he gotten his pro card, which he will likely get in 2019, he would have finished 14th among the 23 professional men who went the distance. 


Had the swim happened, and Ted matched the 29:10 swim he did at Eagleman last June, his time would have been in the 4:06-07 range, which would have lowered his 70.3 PR, the 4:08:29 he posted in a victorious effort at Augusta 70.3 last month, by at least a minute and a half.

It should come as no surprise that he won this year's Most Improved honor.


Ted's girlfriend DANI VSETECKA, who shared the Winner's Circle with Treise at Augusta, had hoped that she could muscle her way through the Waco course despite a foot injury that has kept her from running for the last few weeks.

Her participation was a game time decision.

She was able to complete the bike, but could only hobble through about 8-9K of the run.


We hope that Dani, a true sweetheart, as most of us know, hasn't injured herself more severely. In any event, we're sure that she otherwise maximized the enjoyment of her trip to Waco by hangng out with her many sisters at Magnolia Farms and Market. Hopefully she was able to meet CHIP and JOANNA GAINES, local entrepreneurs who are the stars of "Fixer Upper," a truly awesome home-improvement TV show.
