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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org
See you March 8 at the St. Pat’s 4-miler and March 30 at the Forks XV!.
