Michael and Rachel married on August 6th in Kennebunkport, Maine. The couple met during Ironman Hawaii in 2009 and currently lives in Colorado Springs with their dog, Kona – named after the legendary race.
The church ceremony took place at South Congregational Church and was performed by Rev. Charles Whiston and Michael’s oldest friend, Mag. Michael Simmer of Austria.
Following the ceremony, Rachel’s parents, Jeff and Kim Cole, hosted a reception for 125 guests at their countryside farm known as Mapletop.
The couple is now preparing for a series of World Championship races including; Las Vegas 70.3, Ironman Hawaii, and Xterra Maui where Michi will represent Austria and Rachel will deliver SRMlive Telemetry.
Many thanks to family and friends for the kind wishes, love, and support!
