NJ State Olympic / Club Competition Update

Hello CJTC Fans, Once again today turned out to be another spectacular day for a triathlon.  The day started out with cool and moist air temperatures which changed later on making it a warm, dry and sunny day, not to mention a water temperature of exactly 78ºF unlike yesterday which was actually 78.5ºF. This meant today’s race was wetsuit legal for all who wanted to wear one.  (Sorry sprint racers..)

As for the race itself, once again we witnessed the true core and spirit that makes up CJTC members, their friends and family members.  We saw some first time Olympic distance triathletes, some valiant efforts fighting through the heat and pain of cramped muscles and pre-existing injuries, in addition to the great support from the tent crew cooking and cheering on all the contests as they passed on the run course.  All we can really say is thank you to all that showed up to support the competitors.

Finally the result of the Club Competition.  Sadly to say, CJTC did not take home the club prize for earning the most points in the challenge.  However it wasn’t for a lack of trying.  Many of our awesome members produced some amazing results and did earn us a share of the remaining points available, but it just wasn’t meant to be.  Yet, surprisingly we have been told directly by the NJ State Race Director, that there will likely be a Spirit Award for the best club spirit.  The award is yet to be determined, but given we have such great members and really make everyone know what a triathlon club is all about, we are very likely to win. So in closing, although we lost the challenge, we still win no matter what.

Congrats to all the race finishers and a big thank you to all the supporters over the entire weekend.

NJ State Sprint / Club Competition Update

Well CJTC Fans, Today turned out to be a fantastic day for a triathlon after all the doom and gloom from the past could of days.  The day started out cool and cloudy but quickly turned into the ideal racing conditions with a water temp of 78ºF for today’s race.  There was an amazing turnout of CJTC members, their families and those just showing up to give support to the club.  We saw some incredible efforts from all the members which included some first time triathletes, the overcoming a flat tire right in transition at the start of the bike segment and the amazing spirit which CJTC was showing compared to other clubs.

As for the Club Competition, starting the day we were in first place based solely on points for club members signed up for the race. Right now CJTC is in Second Place, as there were a few very high finishes from another club.  However all hope isn’t lost as we expect another amazing day of racing tomorrow with even more great finishes from CJTC.

Let’s get all fired up about the Olympic distance tomorrow and take home the remaining points.

Good luck racers!! See you at the finishing line!
