Spring is roaring in like a lamb (?) and we are taking full advantage of the early warmth!
March saw some great local road races, VTC hade members participate in the Eastern States 20 Miler and Half Marathon, Paul, Tim, and Derek all braved the unrelenting wind and had great races - way to represent!
Last weekend was the first annual Helping Children Hear in NH 5k, in Dover. Again VTC represented! We had Derek, Matt M and Ken in the top 22– nice job guys!
The Gilmanton 5k was also in March on a very chilly morning! Corinne was our sole rep – nice race Corinne!
If I have missed you I apologize! Share your race plans on the forum.
Don’t forget the first swim training session is this Wednesday night – 7pm at Trek, it will be followed by 2 in pool sessions but this first dry land one will give a ton of info about swim form, open water techniques and drills you can try. It will be useful information to have for the in pool sessions on the 14th and 28th. Please sign up on the forum to let me know you are coming.
Also – EPICMAN! April 18th
The Epicman party will be our social gathering for April (they won’t all have free burritos and beer so don’t miss this one!). 7pm at the store – If anyone can make it early to help set up I would appreciate it!!
I am recruiting riders for the Portland to Portsmouth leg – the fundraising bar is set at $207.80 – the number of miles that Seth and Will are completing in their Epic Journey! Hit up your employers, neighbours, mums and dads! All the money raised from the Portland to Portsmouth leg, plus the donations at the party will be donated to Team Trevor!
If you are biking – we will be meeting at RiRa in Portland (at 12:45 for a pint) with an estimated departure time of 2pm. The bike leg will have full vehicle support, with technical, nutritional and ‘hydrational’ help!
Email me to register or let me know if you can help out that night.
