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: http://www.gctri.org/race-calendar/

Congratulations to our team members who raced IRONMAN Miami 70.3 last weekend: Kevin Portmann finished an amazing year qualifying for World Championships after his 4:25 performance & Mike Satz finished in 5:15.  Rich Bean took 2nd AG in the Mountain Man Biathlon (1:22). 

Good luck to all of our GCTri members who are running the ING NYC Marathon this weekend. 

Hincapie gear has arrived!  Stop by our sponsor Fleet Feet of Hoboken during store hours to pick up your gear.  If you missed the order we plan on placing another in early spring 2014 and we will be getting the fit kits so you can check out the sizing. 

Reminder that next Saturday 11/9 there will be a Foam Rolling/Stretching Clinic at Mile Square Physical Therapy and we will also be having the November social at Moran’s.  See the club calendar for full details.

The dessert series continues!  On Saturday Mike Haskell and RJ Boergers are leading a ride to the Runcible Spoon in Nyack departing the 14th st. pier at 9am (it will be at a friendly pace).  On Sunday, it is likely that Kristine Papamichael will be leading a ride to state line – departure time TBD – keep an eye on facebook and club calendar.

Weekly News Update 10/18

Amazing job by Matt Bach (9:59) and Mark Tsigounis (11:21) at IRONMAN World Championships at Kona!  Jenny Zarzuela competed at the Women’s Perfect Ten (1:42); At Steamtown Marathon Nicci Schock PR’d (3:46), Andrew Corcione (3:55); At Rev3 Half-Full Dave Cruz crushed it (2nd OA – 4:23).  Great efforts all!

Goodbye and good luck to our weekday ride leader – Andre Preotesa (he’s moving to the suburbs).  With Andre’s departure we are in desperate need of a weekday ride leader for next year (typically April through September).  At a minimum we plan on offering 1 morning ride but the past couple years we were fortunate to have Tuesday and Thursday morning rides.  Let the BOD know if you’d like to get more involved.

We are having the October Club social tomorrow (Saturday) at 4pm at Moran’s Pub in Hoboken.  Stop by and enjoy the good company of fellow club members without the spandex. 

On Saturday Andrew Corcione and Mike Haskell are leading a ride to State Line departing the 14th st. pier at 8am (it will be at a friendly pace).  On Sunday, John Argueta will be riding to state line – departure time TBD – keep an eye on facebook and club calendar.

May Social

Come hang out with other members of GCTri while not wearing spandex!  We will be getting together at Pier 13 in Hoboken (https://www.facebook.com/Pier13Hoboken) on Thursday May 30th @ 7pm.  Hopefully we will get a chance to see long time GCTri member Eva Kovacs who is in town visiting from England – stop by and say hi!  To add some incentives to continue the Thursday evening tempo run, RJ will buy your first beer if you show up in sweaty athletic gear after doing the run!
