We have reached the traditional end of summer mark with Labor Day Weekend, which traditionally means winding down the triathlon season and shifting to some other activities…Well, we at Start-tri.com would like to propose a few more events before we close the door on summer.
We would like to invite you to come participate in the BuckMan Sprint Triathlon in beautiful Round Valley Park on September 15th. We have been authorized to give a nice discount if interested in this race. Email me directly at email@example.com for code. I will be leading a preview ride on thurs, Sept 5th at 5:30 PM along with local triathlete Nikki Ragonese. Please bring a helmet and come check out this beautiful course!!!
Also on tap will be our annual Oktoberfest Beer Ride scheduled to be held on Saturday October 5th. We will ride west into beautiful Hunterdon County and end back at the Stirling Hotel for some great seasonal brews. Ride time and distance TBD…
Well, Start-tri.com was blessed with wonderfully dedicated athletes this year who stacked up many finishes and some impressive results…
Coach Kristin Cacicedo racked up some hardware at the Lake Lenape Tri, the Belmar Tri and the Born to Tri.
Paul Daly, Ed Riley and Matt Lefkowitz finished their first Ironman in Lake Placid. While Raphael Zagury finished his second with his first sub 11 hour effort.
Lori Freeland Morris had a great summer with more hardware at the NJ State Sprint, the Belmar Tri, the Lake Placid mini-tri and the 2-mile USMS Cable Swim championships. Soon she will be flying over the pond to represent the USA in the Sprint World Championships held in London!
Barbara Reuven had a great race at the Steelman tri.
Amy Campbell-Lefkowitz and Sue Lawson tackled the Timberman 70.3 tri. Amy finally cracked that elusive 6 hour barrier and PR’d with a 5:40. Congrats to both.
Leon Herszon finished his first Olympic Tri at NJ State and had a high finish at the Denville Tri.
Pete Kavalus Pr’d by over an hour at Ironman Louisville (and was interviewed on television). Way to go Pete!
Former Start-tri athletes Lawrence Writer, Tucker McKeever and JT Thompson joined me in Louisville to take on the Ironman one more time. I am pleased to say that all finished on a brutally hot day. We were able to raise almost 30 thousand dollars for Wounded Warrior Project with our finish. Thanks to all who donated!!!
See you all at the races:)
