Randolph Lake Triathlon - July 12th
Registration is open! Yup, you heard correctly and we've got some new things with it. In addition to the triathlon and aqua bike, we've got a duathlon, too. Check out the website. As a member, you can get a 10% discount with the code in the members section. (Make sure you're paid up...we'll check!)
If you want a really sweet deal, we've teamed up with the Jerseyman Triathlon in May to create a "Do the Duo" prize. If you sign up for BOTH races, you will get a 10% discount on BOTH. (You have to sign up together.)
On Feb 5th, Cycle Craft hosted an event introducing club members to the GURU Fit system. This is the review from the event, and one person's review of their fit experience. Head on over to the forum and check out the post. Ask any questions, add any experiences you have had.
So….this was my first long course triathlon. This was my first triathlon that was longer than a sprint. Just think, I only started doing this last year (2013)! I wanted to complete a Half-Ironman the year I turned 40….and I did. To say I was nervous is an understatement. I WAS TERRIFIED!!! Terrified of the swim, terrified of the bike, not so much the run…..just the swim and bike.
I watched the mass of people enter the water to warm up, so I made my way down to the waters edge to do the same. I needed to calm my nerves and my short warm up run didn’t help at all. For 70 degree water temp, that water was COOOOLD! After I swam for a bit, it felt better and less like I was going to freeze to death or drown.
I came out and slowly made my way to the person holding the placard for my wave….#14 at 7:50am. They were whipping through the waves like crazy. Everyones wave was going off on time. My wave was up. We swam quietly to the start buoys. Everyone wished each other good luck and said to have fun, with some light nervous giggling. WE WERE OFF!!
“For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but of power, love and self control.”
This is only one of several mantras that I repeated during my most recent Ironman. Anyone that has toed the line for this 140.6 mile day will tell you that there comes a point when you have to dig deep, find your inner self, or call on a higher power to get you to the finish line.
For everyone except the pros, Ironman isn’t a race. It’s a calling to challenge yourself to achieve the seemingly impossible. It begins as a thought. With credit card in hand, you take a leap of faith. For the next 12 months you can think of little else. You tell others of your plan while secretly asking yourself, “Am I really doing this?”
Join the club and make the most of your triathlon experience.
