Action is heating up (and so is the weather) for Start-tri athletes this weekend…Tom Whelan will be hitting the Atlantic as he takes on the Asbury Park ice breaker swim.
Traveling to Staten Island to race the classic Flat as a Pancake Triathlon will be Steve Grimes, Mike Grussgott, Coach Mickey Cassu, Coach Kristin Cacicedo ???, Scott Johnson and long-time queen-bee Patty Willetts MacNaught from Paramount.
Further down the coast Morgan Miller will be racing the Manahawkin Triathlon.
In northern NJ, Steve Schepps will be tackling the hilly Wyckoff Triathlon.
Turn to Father’s Day and Asbury Park will be host to the annual Jersey Shore Triathlon. First timer Max Marell, Susan Levy and coach Mickey Cassu will be trying their luck in the Atlantic.
Not content with short races, recent Start-tri campers Hallie Halsey and Justin Berutich will be tackling the always difficult Syracuse half-Ironman.
Next weekend brings some more half-iron races. Leon Herszon will be looking to PR at the classic Tupper Lake Tinman in the hilly Adirondacks.
Iron-couple Matt Lefkowitz and Amy Campbell as well as Dave Swezey will be traveling north of the border to take on the challenging Mt. Tremblant 70.3.
Good luck to all racers!
See you at the races…
