Fall Updates

by The Coaches on October 12, 2014

Welcome Fall in the Northeast…

Fall in our area means recharging the battery and getting away from very “tri-specific” training. Toward that end, go find some new activities to re-charge your battery. Fall brings thoughts or mountain biking or cyclocross to sharpen your biking skills. Trail running or hiking at this time of year can bring out a renewed interest to be off your regular routes…

Planning for 2015???

Start-tri.com has updated our pricing for 2015. Also Coach Mickey will not be taking any new clients at the Tier III level for 2015. His athlete load is filled up:(

Also new for 2015 will be new clothing for Start-tri athletes (new and old). Kits will be ordered through Pearl Izumi. More details to come on pricing, style and design.

Finally, good luck to Pete Beskal, Deirdre O’Mara, Tricia and Sean Kelly, Coach Mickey, Tucker McKeever, Coach Kristin, Judith Gorog Petit, Jodi Huckabee, Kristen Dvorscak, Patty Branthover, Lindy Grimes, Amy Campbell, Joelle Cutrona-Buzzard, Leaon Herszon and Heather Maguire running in the Marine Corps, Hershey and Philly Marathons/1/2 marathons.

Train smart and have fun…

The coaches
