The Countdown has Begun!

Greetings CJTC Members,

The countdown has begun and it is nearly five more days until our largest CJTC event of the year. You have all been swimming smooth, pedaling fast and running hard to get yourselves in shape for the event. Now is the time to dial it back just a bit and rest up for a long weekend of racing and cheering on your fellow club members.

Don’t forget to go to our Yahoo Group and volunteer to contribute an item or two for the weekends events. It should be a fun and exciting weekend for everyone involved. We plan on having our club tent setup in the same location as last year with snacks, a grill for burgers and hot dogs and various drinks for those attending.

Come on down and join us if you are racing, cheering on your friends or just there to lend a hand.

Have a great week and rest up, it should be a fun and exciting weekend.

Don’t Forget this Sunday: Running Form Clinic

What: Running Form Clinic
When: July 15th, 2012 9am-10am
Where: Tamaques Park, 1101 Lamberts Mill Rd Westfield, NJ 07090

The Sneaker Factory in Millburn will be hosting a Running Form Clinic for all Central Jersey Tri Club members on Sunday July 15th at 9am in Tamaques Park.

Jess Hyland from New Balance will be there to talk about running form and there will be lots of opportunities to practice running form in the park.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there! Make sure you come wearing your running sneaks and workout clothes!

Thank You from Team ReserveAid

I would like to thank everyone who came to the ReserveAid fundraiser last night and to those who donated auction and raffle items. I personally had a great time and we raised a lot of money that will go directly towards helping our troops in need.

Whether you were able to make it or not, Jess and I could certainly use the support as we try to tackle the August heat in our attempt to finish our 140.6 mile journey at Ironman NYC next month. If you’d like to financially support ReserveAid as we “Tri for out troops” please go here to learn more and to make a Donation To ReserveAid.

Finally, Team ReserveAid’s flagship event for 2013 will be Ironman Lake Placid. Sign up for the race will be on July 23rd. This race is expected to sell out within minutes, so please reach out to me if you have any questions about the race or how to beat the cut-off window on registration day. Whether you’ve done long races in the past or simply have it on your bucket list to do an Ironman, I will say that ‘Anyone’ can complete and Ironman, but you certainly have to ‘want’ to do the work to get there. A year is plenty of time to prepare.

Cheers,

-John
