Congrats to our competitors last weekend. At Empire State Marathon – Mike Menter (3:08); At Runners World Half Marathon – Lauren Kruk (1:41). Good luck to Gabe Rasure at IRONMAN Miami 70.3 this weekend and anyone else who might be racing.

If you would like to purchase a team uniform (race kit or cycling gear) the time is NOW. We are only planning on doing this once for the year. The fit kit should be arriving from Hincapie today or tomorrow (we will notify you as soon as it is here). We will have it for approximately 1 week and it will be located over at our sponsor Fleet Feet of Hoboken. Stop in during store hours, try on items you wish to purchase and record the sizes that fit best. Jen will then coordinate through Hincapie to open the ordering portal. We should have uniforms sometime in February or March by ordering so early.

Weekend rides (all depart from 14th st ferry pier). Saturday: Maria is leading an A ride to state line (~40mi) departing at 7am. Nicole is leading a B ride to state line or Piermont departing at 8am. If you are new to the group and have been standing on the sidelines because you were worried you couldn’t keep up – now is the time to join the rides as they are much more social in nature.

It’s Kona weekend…and we’ve got some folks for you to follow! On Saturday, have fun tracking Carsten Hansen and GCTri alumni Missy Manning and Jared Tootel at the IRONMAN World Championships.

Congrats to Lauren Karstens (1:41, 2nd AG, new PR) for a great race last weekend at Jersey Shore Half Marathon. Good luck to those racing Steamtown Marathon and Staten Island Half Marathon.

Great news! We’ve re-scheduled the Tour de Defiant Brewery for Saturday 10/18. The trip will depart the 14th St. ferry pier at 10am. Lets hope we get nice weather so we can go and enjoy it!

Are you interested in ordering awesome GCTri race kits and cycling gear? Jen has ordered the Hincapie fit kit so that you can find out your appropriate sizes. Stay tuned for information pertaining to the arrival of the fit kit. We typically get it for a 1 week period and our sponsor Fleet Feet is kind enough to hold it at their Hoboken store. Simply stop in during their business hours, try stuff on and mark down your sizes. Jen will open the Hincapie ordering portal shortly thereafter. We do need to meet certain minimums so please order if you are interested.

Weekend rides: On Saturday, Raphael is leading an A+ ride leaving the 14th st. ferry pier at 7am. Nicole is leading a B ride to state line (~40mi) that departs the 14th st. ferry pier at 8:30am. Saturday looks like rain, so perhaps these will get switched to Sunday. Monday is Columbus Day and some folks may have off so please organize other rides on FB and the club calendar.

Congratulations to the newly elected GCTri BOD: President – RJ Boergers, Secretary – Mike Satz, CFO- Chuck Dender, Members at large – Nicci Schock & Jen Sheppard.  We also welcome Mark Smith as the weekday ride coordinator (one of our most important committees).  Special thanks to Mike Haskell, Kristine Papamichael and Andre Preotesa for all of their hard work last year.  If you’d like to volunteer for a committee please contact RJ; we can always use more help!

The Hincapie fit kits have arrived!  They will be available for you to try on triathlon & cycling gear at our sponsor – Fleet Feet of Hoboken (604 Washington St.) from Saturday 1/4 to Wednesday 1/15.  Please pay close attention to future ordering instructions from Jen Sheppard.  If we have the orders placed by 1/31 we hope we will have our gear by April.

The Facebook group will only be available to paying members, our sponsors, and husbands/wives (our support team is critical) as of 1/31/14 – all others will be dropped.  This policy was created when we noticed an imbalance between our RaceReach roster and our Facebook roster.  Why should unpaid members have some of the same benefits as the paying members?
