Open Water Swim Waiver

BCTC Newsletter – October 2014

Welcome to the Off-Season!!

This is when you can take time out of your run to jump in the leaves. You can bike without worrying about cadence. And you don’t have to struggle into your wetsuit.

(Unless, of course, you are John Lomasney and Luke Robbins, who are still swimming in open water, as of late October, as they prepare for their 3.1-mile swim across Tampa Bay on Jan. 11, 2015. The event is the Tampa Bay Frogman Swim and the charity is the Navy Seal Foundation. If you want to donate, here is the link.:

www.imathlete.com/donate/johnlomasney.)

Most of us are now doing road races, and here’s one that should be both a challenge and a good cause: The STOP-DWI Returning Warrior 10 & 5 miler on Nov. 9. Team members can register for a $10 discount, so just click on the link, select “Join a team” and search for Broome County Triathlon Club.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/stop-dwi-returning-warrior-10-5-miler-registration-11189162085

Sign up, wear your yellow and green, run for a good cause and see you all there!

Membership meetings will now run through May; most are the first Monday of the month but sometimes we have to adjust, as is the case with November’s meeting. It will be Nov. 10 (the second Monday) at McGirk’s in Chenango Bridge. McGirk’s lets us use the back room with no fee – but please consider buying food or drink to make it worthwhile for them to open up the space to us.

We will be voting on board members and officers on Nov. 10; the ballots will be announced soon. Please send any nominations for President, VicePresident, Secretary or Board member to BCTriathlonClub@yahoo.com before the meeting.

Why attend membership meetings? To hear great speakers, catch up with friends, and find running buddies who won’t leave you behind in a snow bank. And, of course, to start planning next year’s race schedule! If you’re looking to move up – to an Olympic, half or full Ironman – there are BCTC members who can answer any question.

Registrations for some of the best races will open soon – Seneca 7 and Musselman.

Don’t forget our group run at 5:45 p.m. Wednesdays at the foot bridge to the BU campus on Murray Hill Road. We always swing back at 6 in case you’re late. Distance is about 5 or 6 miles. There is often a trail run at 8 p.m. in the nature preserve, too.

BU Masters Swimming - BU West Gym:

MWF: 6- 7:15am (will need to inquire about space availability)
7:15-8:30am (multiple spaces open)
Sat: 6:30 – 7:45am and 7:45 – 9:00am (space is open)

Cost is $40 per month, but is negotiable if ppl can only go 1-2d/week and or are need of financial assistance.

Downtown YMCA:
Mon, Tues, Thurs: 6 – 7:30pm (space available)
Sat: 9:30 – 11am

Y membership is needed…there may be an additional $5 charge, but many team members state that the Y has not been doing so the last few months.

In addition to coaching/instruction, very beneficial when traveling as can go to many Y affiliates…Masters membership allows you to swim with team affiliates throughout the country.

Hope this helps! If people have additional questions, have them fire off an email to: df.werner@gmail.com

BCTC May Newsletter

Racing season is poised at the starting line — with the Bridge Run on May 4, Fly-by-Night and the Binghamton University Sprint Triathlon both on May 10, and the Rat Snake Duathlon on May 17.

To kick off racing season, we’ll have our annual potluck dinner at 6 p.m. May 12 at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, 701 W. Main St., Endicott. Please bring a dish or beverage; we’ll supply the paper goods. This is our last monthly membership meeting until October, and note that it’s NOT the first Monday of the month this time!

Our guest speaker is Jennifer Laurita, the 2014 League of American Bicyclists Educator of the Year.  She is a league cycling instructor and national-level training mentor and coach, working with organizations across the United States to teaching bicycling and train-the-trainer seminars.  Jennifer is an avid road cyclist and terrible first-time triathlete, specializing in being terrible across multiple disciplines. Jennifer is the author of the book, The Anatomy of Cycling.

By the way, Linda Harding has been responsible for bringing in all the great speakers we’ve had this year. Thanks for all the hard work, Linda!  If you have suggestions for fall, send them her way.

In other news:

The Broome County Triathlon has an important change: The turnaround at the bottom of the hill has been eliminated! The turnaround will now be at the top of the hill. The course will be shorter by a half mile — it will be  11.5 miles — but it will be much safer for cyclists and drivers.

Another change is that high school teams will have their own relay category. The idea came from the Sidney high school students and coach who spoke to our club last month; Bob Beavan passed it on to the county and it was added to the registration form. Teams can be three students or two students and one adult. Students must be entering 7th grade or up to be on a high school relay team. Help spread the word!

The Broome County Youth Triathlon needs volunteers! It takes place right after the adult triathlon on June 28 and takes about an hour. The Chris Thater Youth Duathlon on Aug. 23 also needs volunteers. USAT requires volunteers to sign waivers for both events. E-mail Diana at dbean0120@gmail.com if you can help at either or both events.

Run-bike-run: Is held at 6 p.m. every Wednesday at the Chenango Forks bus garage on Kattelville Road. Please consider volunteering to be a timekeeper at least once this summer!

Open-water swim will start at 6 p.m. on Memorial Day, May 25, at Dorchester Park on the Whitney Point Reservoir. We meet at the north end of the park. The cost to swim is $30 (make check payable to the Whitney Point Swim Club), plus you must be a member of BCTC or the Whitney Point Swim Club. You must fill out a waiver and medical form before you enter the water. There will be forms at the next meeting if you want to fill them out and pay. If you are going to fill them out at OWS, please arrive before 5:30 because the paperwork gets a bit chaotic and we want to get in the water on time.

Post your ride! Club members are encouraged to post a planned run or ride on the BCTC Facebook page; it’s helpful for new members to be able to jump in and find training partners.

 

BCTC Newsletter – April 2014

Broome County Triathlon Club Newsletter – April 2014

Any minute now, we’ll be biking. Outdoors. In shorts. Right?
In the meantime, here’s what’s going on with your triathlon club:
The Champs apparel order will be open until April 14. This is the LAST opportunity to order race apparel this season. Go to broomecountytriathlonclub.com and click on Club Apparel. If you already have a Champs account, sign in with that (not with the bctc2014 user name). Returning customers log in on the right-hand square (CS direct member login). Any problems contact Bob Stocks @ rstocks3@stny.rr.com
Run-Bike-Run: Weather permitting, it will start at 6 p.m. April 2 at the Chenango Forks bus garage on Kattelville Road (watch FaceBook for last minute cancellations). We’ll only do RBR at this site for now; but we are looking for a new site in Endicott or Apalachin. If you’re new to RBR, we run a mile, bike 7.5 or 15mi, then run a mile. We try to have a scorekeeper each week; please consider volunteering to be that person at least once this summer. YOU MUST BE A CLUB MEMBER to participate in RBR. You can join at the event; please download membership forms and have them filled out so we can start on time.
Wednesday evening runs will move to Friday evenings when RBR starts (first run is April 4th). They will still start at 5:45 at the Binghamton University footbridge on Murray Hill Road. We’ll do the runs through April, then assess demand and participation.This is an unofficial club event; all runners are welcome and we will continue to promote it on FB.
Our next meeting is at 6 p.m. April 7 at McGirk’s. Our speaker will be a coach from Sidney High School who worked with students who were runners and swimmers to put together relay teams for last year’s Broome County Triathlon. Getting teens involved in multisport isn’t easy; how did he do it?
Speaking of kids and multisport …
Expect to be asked to volunteer for the Broome County Youth Triathlon, which takes place immediately following the Broome County Triathlon on June 28.
And on Aug. 23, the club will team up with STOP-DWI to stage the Chris Thater Memorial Youth Duathlon. Kids will run-bike-run around the Thater cycling course in downtown Binghamton. Yes, we will need volunteers!
We continue to do hot yoga every few weeks, so stay tuned to FB for announcements. Thank you to Linda Harding for arranging it with Yoga Body Shop!

Newsletter – March 2014

Spring training isn’t just for baseball!

March is when a lot of us are increasing volume and intensity of training, especially for those early season races. And Broome County Triathlon Club is here to help:

At our monthly meeting on March 3, John Koniuto and the staff from Oakdale PT will talk about keeping your body race-ready. Join us at 6 p.m. in the back room at McGirk’s Irish Pub.

Want to race for free? The club has been given two race entries from CGI Racing: one for Black Bear Triathlon on June 1 in Lehighton, Pa. (tough course!), the other is the New Jersey State Triathlon in West Windsor, N.J., on July 19/20. Choose sprint or olympic distances. All you have to do to win is be a club member, be committed to doing the race if you win (don’t want to waste the comps!) and send your name and race preference to BCTriathlonClub@yahoo.com. We’ll choose the winners at random at the March 3 meeting.

Hot yoga! BCTC likes to sweat, and we’ll be doing 90 minutes of hot yoga on Feb. 28 at Yoga Body Shop, 765 Harry L Drive, Johnson City. Arrive by 7:15; if you are new to the studio, visit  http://yogabodyshop.com/ and click on classes, then download the waiver. Print it, sign it and bring it with you. Also bring a mat (there are a few to borrow), beach towel, face towel and lots of water. Dress for heat! Family and friends welcome. Cost is about $12, depending on number of participants. RSVP to Linda Harding at lkm.harding.07@gmail.com.

There will be a swim clinic on March 22. It will be from 9 a.m. to noon at the Whitney Point High School pool. The clinic is free to BCTC members!

Run-bike-run: Someday soon it will be kinda warm and kinda dry. Look for RBR to start up sometime in April. The Wednesday night BU run will end when RBR starts. Anyone who wants to organize a weekly run, just talk to Ed!

Chris Thater Youth Duathlon: BCTC wants to give kids a chance to “do a du” on Thater weekend. It’s still in the planning stages, but we’ll need lots of volunteers for what is always a great time — getting kids interested in multisport! Mark your calendars; it’s Saturday, Aug. 23.

The points matter! Have you been earning points for our Year-End Awards Program? You can earn points for participating in a group event, doing a race, volunteering. There will be awards in October! Report your participation to Joel at joel.t.peters@gmail.com

See you March 8 at the St. Pat’s 4-miler and March 30 at the Forks XV!.

A Message from Bob Matson

At the meeting last week our members signed a card for our friend, Bob Matson. Here is a message that we received back from Bob;

BCTC…THANK YOU for the card, phone calls and best wishes.
You are a great group and I am personally better for knowing and training with you.
I am doing well and am on the “right side of the grass” :-)
Looking forward to recovering some level of fitness starting in June.
Keep up the training, early season competitions and achieving your personal goals.
I’ll do my best to catch up with you the second half of 2014!
Bob Matson

Year-End Awards Program

What’s a year of racing without an award at the end?? Well this year BCTC is announcing the Year-End Awards Program which awards club participation points throughout the season and culminates with the presentation of awards at our banquet in October.

Read all about it!!!    Year-End Awards Program

The Fun Starts Today!!!

The cold weather months are here but your first race of 2014 is likely only a few months away. Starting your training now will help you achieve better performance when the warm weather returns.

BCTC has registered to be a participant of the USAT National Challenge Competition. This is a 3-month ‘event’ starting December 1st and ending on February 28th between USAT clubs around the country that will track our training mileage. We accumulate the swim, bike or run mileage done by our members for the next 90 days towards the overall Challenge benchmarks. Our club goal is 50 miles of swimming, 7500 miles of biking and 833 miles of running.

You can do any or all of the three disciplines and have your training time count for our club. You do NOT have to do all three sports to participate. If you want to only submit ‘run’ or ‘swim’ mileage that is ok. The important thing is that you keep track of the dates and distances that are a part of your normal workout routine. You can submit as short or long of a workout that you complete.

What do you have to do to join in?
1. You must be a BCTC member and you must be a USAT member to participate. Not a USAT member? Register here. USAT membership offers many benefits.     www.usatriathlon.org

2. Send your name and USAT # to BCTriathlonClub@yahoo.com – we will register you onto our team. You will receive a message confirming your inclusion.

3. Start Swimming, biking and running! Keep track of the distances that you complete. You will receive info on how to record your data so it contributes to our overall goal.

How do I calculate my distances travelled?
Swim – 11 laps (up and back on a 25 yd pool) = 1/4 mile
Bike – 60 mins on spin or trainer = 15 miles
Run – Treadmill distance or google-maps distances
