Flores Completes Ironman 70.3 Competition in Austin, Texas

Big Spring resident Jino Flores completed the Ironman 70.3 in Austin on October 29th. The event is made up of a 1.2 mile swim, a bike ride of 56 miles, followed by half marathon which is 13.1 miles. This entire course is 70.3 miles that has a time limit of 8 hours.

Flores says that he struggles with the swimming portion during events and he said that 95 percent of his cycling training was done at home on his cycle trainer, but he didn’t let those issues keep him from competing. He didn’t give up and did the best he could.

Flores said that during the Ironman event there were time frames that had to be met for each event in order to continue to the next portion of the race. The time limit for the swimming portion was 1 hour and 10 minutes, and Flores was so excited that he finished in 1 hour and 5 minutes so he could continue his race. He then biked 56 miles, but says there was a point when he was at mile 51 that his legs had cramped up so bad that he couldn’t even walk. Another competitor offered advice to walk backwards and Flores said that the pain went away and he felt so great that he was able to continue and finish the competition at a final time of 8 hours and 9 minutes.

“This is the only sport that you compete in with the professional. You do the same course,” says Flores. “When you [compete] in [the] age group [divisions], everyone’s out there for the same reason and no one’s trying to beat each other or race against you. Everybody’s out there just trying to help.”

Flores has been greatly influenced by his friends and loved ones who have been diagnosed with debilitating diseases or cancer and is inspired to run for those who cannot run for themselves. He says that the majority of the races he competes in are to raise money for MS, or the American Cancer society. In fact, the Fidelity Marathon that he ran in Woodlands, Texas in April 2016 was for his friend David Coffey, who has MS; and this entire Ironman journey is to honor his brother Gary Flores, who passed away in April of last year.

“Every test was thrown at me,” says Flores. “That’s the thing, it just depends on how much you want it. If you want to finish, you’re gonna finish. I’ve got a lot more work and I’ve got 6 months, so I’ve basically got to double everything. The entire race is 17 hours [limit].”

The event that Flores is now training for is the full Ironman, which consists of swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles, and running 26.2 miles. He’s registered to compete in April 2018.

Flores says that his interest in running was sparked by running enthusiasts Melanie and Melissa Zapata, also from Big Spring, after he got out of the army. In 2010 he completed his first half-marathon in Las Vegas and was so enthralled with the support from the crowd that he was hooked. Flores says he then began finding other races to compete in and since then, in addition to the Ironman 70.3, he has competed in multiple races— 5 half-marathons, 2 full marathons, 1 Spartan Sprint, and 3 Sprint Triathlons.

“My biggest thing is that, hopefully, I can encourage just one [more] person to start trying this out,” says Flores.

Solis Finishes in Top Quarter of Competitors in 2017 TSC New York Marathon

Local Big Spring resident, Mike Solis, competed in the TSC New York Marathon this past weekend.

This is the largest marathon in the world, and consists of 26.2 miles of course that runs through 5 boroughs of New York City with 51,000 competitors. The number of competitors that this event brings in is so huge that not everyone who registers for the race can compete. There is only a handful of ways to gain guaranteed entry, but for everyone else – they must enter the lottery and wait to see if they get picked.

Solis stated that he had been training for 9 months prior to the event and the closer the race got, the more rigorous the workout. He’d train 5-6 days every week by running around Big Spring.

“I had a goal in mind. I was going to finish this race,” said Solis.

He finished with a time of 3:55:03 and placed 11,737th, which is in the top quarter of the competitors. Solis also said that he wasn’t meaning to run for time, but he did finish 10 minutes sooner than he had anticipated and he was able to knock off an hour and 15 minutes from his last marathon, which he had ran in Austin earlier this year.

It’s been a tough road but Solis and his family are proud of his accomplishment. “I know their very proud of me,” he says. “My kids are excited. I think they said that they saw me at mile 16 and my little girl lost it! She was so proud of me.”

When asked what he hopes people will take away from his experience, Solis said, “I would like to inspire someone to run, to do what you think you can’t do.”

Solis says his plans for the future are to continue competing in marathons because he’s hooked. He just registered for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Series in San Antonio that will take place on December 3rd, and he also hopes to be able to compete in the Chicago marathon.

SWCID Basketball Games are Best Kept Secret in Big Spring

Adrienne Green and Mark Richardson took the opportunity to take in a SWCID men’s basketball game this afternoon. Basketball games at SWCID may be the best kept secret in Big Spring. However, it’s time to change that. The excitement of the crowd equals that of any local sports event. The Cheerleaders do not use words to whip the crowd into a frenzy - they don’t need to. The base drum hammering out the cadence and the enthusiasm of the students is awe inspiring. KBEST Media wants to encourage everyone to come see Rattler Athletics for yourself. Here are links to the men’s and women’s basketball schedules as well as the volleyball schedule.
