Weekly Update 4/25/14

Congratulations to Mike Guglielmo with the awesome time of 2:47 at Boston Marathon!  Good luck to our GCTri members racing the Long Branch Half Marathon: Lisa Mangino, Deb Noble, Nicole Ogrosso and Todd Olsen; and RJ Boergers racing NJ Marathon.

It’s time to get social again.  Come out and hang with the team in a spandex free environment on Saturday 4/26 at Moran’s at 4pm.  This will be the last weekend social.  As the weather gets nicer, we will rotate the locations and will be meeting for happy hours during the week.

If you are racing Timberman 70.3 and you are looking for housing, the team has secured a nice house for the weekend.  Contact Nicole Ogrosso: if interested.  Limited spaces are available.

There are some great weekend rides planned (all rides meet up at 14th St. ferry pier).  On Saturday, Nicci will be leading a no drop “B” ride up to state line that will depart at 9am.  On Sunday, Laura Muzzatti will be leading a “B” ride up to state line that depart at 9am.  At 9:30am, Nicci will lead a no drop “C” ride (distance to be determined by group).  For up to date changes/additions/cancellations, please visit the club calendar for details:

Best wishes to Matt Bach and Mark Tsigounis competing at IRONMAN World Championships in Kona!  All of us at GCTri are so proud of you.  These guys will be starting the swim at 7am Hawaii time which is 1pm EST for those of you that are as excited as me for following them on IRONMAN tracker. 

Do you struggle when it comes to changing a tire on your bike?  Do you know how to perform routine bike maintenance?    If not, stop by the bike clinic on Saturday.  We are taking an easy ride to state line which will leave the 14th st. pier at 8:30am and then we will be meeting up at Haskell’s garage for the clinic which will start at 11:30am.  Come by and learn a thing or two from our resident bike geek Mike Haskell.

Keep an eye on the club calendar and Facebook group to see if a ride gets added for Sunday.  Also, it looks like Pete Cancila is looking for company on a long ride to Bear Mountain on Saturday at 6am – join him for part of the ride or the whole thing.
