Start-Tri Updates

by The Coaches on April 9, 2014

Congratulations to Start-tri athlete Deirdre O’Mara on completing the Love Run 1/2 marathon in Philadelphia last weekend.

The weekend before, many Start-tri athletes and friends braved the roads of Hunterdon County for L’Enfer d’Hunterdon. A great tune-up for the season and Battenkill.

This past weekend former Start-tri athlete Raphael Zagury ripped it up at 1/2 IM Texas in a PR of 4:37. Congratulations!!!

Good luck in the coming weeks.

Train smart, Race hard and Have fun…

First Results!!!

by The Coaches on March 16, 2014

Congratulations to Jodi Huckabee for finishing the Los Angeles Marathon! Also, congratulations to Mike Cacicedo for recently finishing the E. Todd Murray 1/2 marathon.

March is here and our athletes in the NorthEast had a little taste of spring out there:) Keep spirits up because spring will “really” be here on the calendar this week!!!

We hope to see you in the pool, on the roads and eventually at the races…be careful out there as cars are not happy to see us out there getting in their way!
