4 Ladies Take on 100km Challenge

 

Angele Simard, Liz Schweyer, Cindy Francoeur and Danika Potvin

The Statement: On Sunday July 10 we will be embarking on a big run. We will be running either 24 hours or 100 km whichever comes first. We will be starting at 9:00 am at Kivi park. If you feel like getting out come join us for a lap. This is not an event just our adventure!

 

The Action:

Well we did it! The four of us ran our 100 km run yesterday! It was not pretty for me. The heat hit me like I have never seen. I was very out on the course and had to take a necessary pit stop at my parents house. Luckily they live close to Kivi. I was very happy to bounce back and finish feeling good and strong. Cheers to Simard Angele, Cindy Francoeur and Danika Potvin who ran their first 100 km run! They have now joined the Ultramarathon club. A big thank you to all my friends who came out to run and support me yesterday! As always couldn’t do it without you. A special thank to Ginny for staying with me to the very end and running me in to the finish. Liz S.

I am an ULTRA MARATHONER!!! 100km
Kept it a little more quiet because I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d be able to complete it…but I did!! It was F’n hard, but if it was easy everyone would be doing it.
It would not have been possible without the amazing women beside me ?? Cindy Francoeur Danika Potvin Mary-Elizabeth Schweyer Love you girls. We did it!
And all the support we received all day from our family and friends who helped us on the sidelines, ran a lap or two with us and supported our crazy adventure. Claude Parent
What an incredible feeling, painful, but amazing! I’m still in disbelief . Angele S.

I am officially an Ultra marathoner!
100 km done.
Thank you to all that came out and supported us through the biggest race of our lives. You guys made this race much better by being there and pushing us through.
Danika Potvin, ma petite running partner qui n’a pas lâcher.…. You make me so proud and I’m so happy that we did this together. You sure pushed me during the last few km even though there weren’t many words and a few tears
Simard Angele, I will think twice before asking you to run a half marathon ever again!
I am beyond proud of your achievement and glad that you put this crazy idea in my head a few months ago.
Liz, thank you for making this look easy and believing in us!
To all who asked me, why are you doing this? It took me 13h 40m to figure it out……..
BECAUSE I CAN !!!!!!. Cindy F

That Sudbury Sports Guy: Catching up with a rider

Georgia Lepage is no longer known solely for her prowess in the pool. PHOTO BY SUPPLIED

There was a time when Georgia Lepage was known solely for her prowess in the pool, a very competitive up-and-coming swimmer with the Nickel City Aquatics.

These days, her summer schedule is crammed full of key triathlon races and various games qualifiers and meets, while her year-round calendar is replete with tri-sport training sessions, whether that be in swimming, running or cycling.

“I’ve gotten a lot stronger and I have a different mindset; I’m not as nervous going into the races anymore,” said Lepage, now 15 years old and into her fourth year working alongside coach Mike Nawaleniec and the Sudbury Triple Threat Triathlon/PSP Multi-Sport crew.

“It just kind of changed this year.”

The results speak for themselves.

Heading into Grade 11 at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School, Lepage ranks first in the Triathlon Ontario Junior Cup standings after capturing the Caledon Kids of Steel race and placing second at the Canadian National Development Race earlier this summer.

This past weekend, she was among the youngest competitors participating at the Canada Summer Games qualifying races in Gatineau, a nice warmup as she leaves next week for the Ontario Summer Games in Mississauga, with the triathlon set for Jack Darling Park on July 22 and 23.

Mixed in with the female U16-19 age bracket as an underager in Quebec, Lepage ranked 16th of 38 overall in her division, all while sliding in as third-best Ontario racer in the group. That’s a whole lot of rapid progression for a young lady who is still trying to expand her overall base of athleticism in order to allow her to match up across the board with some of the better junior triathletes in the province.

“Swimming is still my main sport,” said the current member of the Sudbury Laurentian Swim Club. “The swim training helps, no matter the training. Even with butterfly training, you build up more endurance. My run has always been the weakest — we’ve been working on that.”

Of course, this is all relative as Lepage captured the junior girls 3,000-metre title at the city high school track and field championships, chopping another 18 seconds off her team while taking part in her very first OFSAA meet just a few weeks later.

“I’m getting a lot faster now that I am running with Dick (Moss, Track North coach),” she added. “He’s been working with me a lot. I need to work on my technique. I run on my heels and he wants me more on my toes — and I’m hunched over when I run. He’s working on my posture because I use a lot of energy when being hunched over.”

“I’ve gotten a lot stronger on the bike and that has bumped me up places,” Lepage continued, posting a final time of 1:08.13 at the Gatineau race, her division captured by 19-year-old Noemie Beaulieu (1:01.30), competing on her hometown course. “I have a lot more control over my bike.

“I’m not afraid of using my bike going around sharp corners or coming to a harsh stop. A couple of years ago, that didn’t work out so well.”

Still, the fact that Lepage has been able to hit the ground running as competition resumed in earnest this summer has been more than a little encouraging, a testament to the dedication that the young woman has demonstrated in coming out of the pandemic as competitive as ever.


“You just had to keep a good mindset, keep motivated, know your priorities and know where you want to get to,” she said.
