Get Start to 2015 for H-CTC

The Hornets started 2015 off great!

Scott Glover and Jason Dodd had great performances at Charleston 70.3.  Congratulations to Chip’s first 70.3.  Michael Sullivan had a great sprint, too.  Several Jr. Hornets were down in Charleston doing the sprint relay – great performance there, too!

Huntersville Sprint had several individual performances and two relay teams.  The relay teams came in 1st (H-CTC) and 4th place(H-CTC Girls) .  Kevin parks placed 2nd overall!  And Lucas Johnson came in 1st in his age group.  Placing 3rd in their Age Group was Ryan McAnelley, Madeline Sullivan and Mike Sullivan.  Great performance by Tolga and Jeff Shafer.  Junior Hornet, Braden Sullivan participated in Sunday Sprint, too.  Big congratulations goes out to Melissa Hall for completing her first Sprint Triathlon.

H-CTC had eight kids at the HFFA Kids Tri on Saturday, April 25th. Tolga’s daughters plus his niece were there. Chip’s daughter, Ava and Jeff’s daughter was Jenna was there, too. The Sullivan’s had all three kids plus Madeline and Braden did the Huntersville Sprint tri on Sunday.

This last weekend at University City Duathlon Chris Lamperski won. Scott and Erin Warchol participated in duathlon, too.

A couple other races: Steve Swiatek was down in Florida earlier doing the Tri Cocoa Beach Sprint.  In February Tolga and Jim Coleman completed Myrtle Beach Marathon.  Jim has been busy with Mud Run and Spartan race, too!  Holly, Chip and Dusty did Corporate Cup half marathon.

Hope to see everyone out at races this season.  Don’t forget our weekly, swim, bike and run workouts — check the race reach schedule!  Also, if you want to put together a workout, post it on facebook and race reach for everyone to see!

Welcome to 2015 Hornets!

 

H-CTC Members,

Happy New Year!  I trust that all of you had a relaxing and joyful holiday season.  If you are like me, you probably over-indulged on the sweets this past month and maybe slacked on some exercise time, and now it’s time to get back to it!

There have been some changes with our club.  First, Alli Main, our long-time secretary, has decided to step aside from this office.  We can’t thank her enough for her contributions to the team in this capacity (we aren’t letting you off the hook for working out with us though, Alli!).  That being said, Peter has been voted in to replace Alli and we are looking forward to his contributions.  As for the entire leadership team for 2015, they are:

Pres Scott Glover          VP Holly Townsend                                               Secretary Peter Grieshop          Treasurer Jeff Shafer

We are excited to have a great 2015.  You will notice a few changes throughout the year.  Sullivan Family Chiropractic and Massage Therapy is now our title sponsor for this year.  Thank you Doc!  We know quite a few members already see Doc on a regular basis.  In addition, we have linked up with local retailers to expand our menu of sponsors.  As in the past, Sun & Ski Sports will be supporting us with their bike shop and retail store.  Also, we still get a nice discount from NOMAD.  New this year is our relationship with the Charlotte Running Company and Trek Bicycle Store, both at Northlake.  Please visit these folks, tell them you are a member, and use your phone app for www.racereach.com to get your discounts.

We are going to continue to set up group activities that encompass the each of the sports, and will support the local triathlon community.  We encourage all of you to join and post workouts on our local calendar (www.racereach.com).  We envision our group helping each other work harder, work smarter and get better, no matter if any of our starting lines are different.  Be on the lookout for our rewards program to return in 2015 for attending workouts, club functions and races!!!

Like last year, with assistance from everyone in our club and with our sponsors, we will continue to be visible to the local racing community; we will volunteer, participate and enter relay teams, such as the Try Charleston, Huntersville Sprint, Latta Tri, Stumpy Creek kid’s Tri series at HFFA and others.  Once again this year, we will be sponsoring relay teams at the Huntersville Sprint!!!!  Start talking to other members about setting up a team and be on the lookout for sign-up instructions.

Soon, you will be getting some notifications on team events for your participation and workouts.  We don’t want to over-do it in one email.  For the time being, please log on to Race Reach and renew your memberships for 2015, be on the lookout for workouts to join and get yourself back in gear for a great 2015!!!

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, at www.h-ctc.com and www.racereach.com

Scott, Holly, Peter and Jeff
