GCTri extends a warm welcome to our newest members: John Callahan, Pam Harinstein, Mark Tsigounis, Rebecca Gauthier, Roberto Scarpati & Sydney Hattan.  We hope to see you out at the group workouts, socials and races soon!

Congratulations to GCTri members who competed at the Jersey Girl Triathlon: Dani Rossi (1:30), Jenny Zarzuela (1:26).  Remember to keep sharing your results with us on the website –  http://www.gctri.org/race-results/submit-results/

Good luck to Nicole Ogrosso, Jamie Brabston, & Gabby Czernik at Age Group Nationals in Milwaukee. Congrats to our other team members who qualified but unfortunately weren’t able to make the trip to compete.  Good luck to those racing the Belmar 1mi OWS, Staten Island Sprint Tri and any other races this weekend.

This weekend we have a couple options for rides: On Saturday RJ will be leading a 60mi ride (~18mph avg) to Nyack that will leave the 14th St. Pier at 7am.  On Sunday John Argueta will be leading a 40 mile (Newbie friendly ~14-16mph avg) ride that will depart from Weehawken Track at 7am.  Please note that we have removed some of the group training sessions due to low attendance (Wed Evening Track, Thurs Evening Tempo Run, Sunday Morning Long Run).  For full details on available training opportunities, check out the club calendar on the webpage – http://www.gctri.org/race-calendar/ Happy Training!
