Congratulations to our team members who competed at NYC Half Marathon: Lauren Kruk (1:45), Heather Cameron (1:58), Brian Perry (1:29), Lisa Mangino (2:07), Steve Rosselli (1:36), & Carlos Buenano. Remember, please post your results on the website after you race –  http://www.gctri.org/race-results/submit-results/

Today is the last day to take advantage of our team discount code from RoadID.  We strongly encourage you to purchase one for a little added safety while you train.  The discount code can be found in the members only section of the website – http://www.gctri.org/members-2/club-discounts/

Tomorrow (Saturday 3/22) we have some great club events planned.  At 4pm at Symposia Community Bookstore, the Athlete Education Committee will be hosting a Gear Clinic.  Stop by to know what you need to have for the upcoming race season.  Around 5 or 5:30pm (after the gear clinic), we will be heading over to Moran’s for the March Social.  Come by and meet some of our tri members when they aren’t in spandex.

There are no official club rides planned for this weekend.  Please feel free to use the Facebook group to get some people together if you want to get outside and ride.  Keep a close watch on the club calendar because the Track Workouts are scheduled to start next Tuesday.  We hope you can join us for some training sessions.

Gear Clinic

A Gear Clinic is scheduled for next Saturday March 22nd. PLEASE use the club calendar to RSVP. We will move the social (at Moran’s) back about an hour. Newbies and folks looking to make upgrades should attend this clinic. Jared Lando and others will provide a wealth of information in an informal panel format.   Special thanks to the Athlete Education Committee for organizing this event.  We hope you can attend.

Are you itching to get outside and ride?  This weekend Mike Haskell is planning a muffin ride to the Runcible Spoon on Sunday which will depart the 14th St. Pier at 9am.  Keep your eyes on the facebook site because it may change to Saturday depending on the weather forecast.

We’ve got some great things coming up that you’ll want to get on your calendar!  On Saturday 3/22 we will be having a “Gear Clinic” at Symposia Bookstore in Hoboken.  If you are unsure of what you need for a first race or you’ve been considering going high tech, you won’t want to miss this panel discussion led by some of our gear heads.  Immediately following the clinic, we will be having the social over at Moran’s.  Our hard working Athlete Education Committee is also planning a bike handling/tire changing clinic for early April so that you’ll be ready to hit the roads as the spring weather approaches.

The first annual Fun Race has been scheduled for the weekend of April 12th thanks to our Social Committee with the help of Kelly Calabrese.  GCTri members will be broken into teams and will be running, drinking and doing other physically and mentally challenging activities.  Think of the Amazing Race but with some GCTri style and triathlete flair.  It’s going to be awesome.

Reminder that you have 1 more week to use our club coupon code for the purchase of a RoadID.  All members are encouraged to have one for riding. Visit the members only page on the website for the discount code.

Good luck to Heather Cameron, Lisa Mangino and Juan Buenano and any other team members racing the NYC Half Marathon this weekend.  If you have upcoming races, please get them on the calendar so we know you’re racing!
