On Saturday the 16th, Alpine Physical Therapy participated in the first annual Corporate Cup division of the Peak Triathlon, an event run by Missoula’s Fit to Fight non-profit. There were also numerous Alpine employees that took part in the single athlete men’s and women’s divisions!
The corporate team posted a third place win while fielding women in all three disciplines. Carley Mosher, an aide and ex-collegiate swimmer, completed the swim portion with a searing hot time. Fellow aide, Jessa Brooks, cruised on the bike and Jess Kehoe, the lone PT on the roster, crossed the finish line after the running the final 5k.
Jess had so much fun during her run that she ran right through the finish line and continued down the hill. Jess said she enjoys running hills and, “the course was super fun and for a great cause, we all went out at a fast pace and had a great time!”
The other participants who rocked it were Brace Hayden (19th in men, 24th over all), Sam Schmidt (43th in women, 127th over all), Nikki Parnell (19th in women, 66th over all), Katie Schermele (40th in women, 122th over all).
“The Peak Triathlon was a well-organized and positive racing experience! There were spacious pool lanes, a beautiful, rolling bike course overlooking the Missoula Valley, a downhill run finish, and encouraging volunteers! It was impossible not to have a blast!” – Nikki Parnell
Emily Jones, our wicked awesome athletic trainer, provided participants with injury consults and had a station with foam rolls and mats for athletes to stretch and prepare for the race.
That wasn’t all, we had a great turn out of volunteers who donated their time instead of their energy!
Thanks to all who participated! All proceeds went to Fit to Fight to continue “empowering cancer survivors to improve their quality of life through a program of fitness and health.”
