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!!!
