New member here all the way from the Morgantown, WV area. My wife works in DC with one your DC Tri Club Elites and she recommended I join – so here I am! From what I can tell, you have an impressive website of resources and a great club community! I’m new to triathlons, my first few just this last autumn completing Olympic distances at Kinetic’s Savageman and Pleasants Landing. I come from a cross country mountain bike racing background and even competed at USA Cycling’s CX MTB Nationals at Snowshoe a few years ago. Army veteran from Airborne country so I guess I have a bit of a running background too!
For 2020, I’m doing a local half marathon in a few weeks, plan to do Kinetic at Lake Anna in May, I’m registered for IM70.3 Eagleman, and want to tackle the half distance Savageman too! I’m also in a lottery to attend the NYC Triathlon so wish me luck!
Anyways, it would be great to meet and hang out with some of you at these events. I doubt I will ever meet you during the week for training or happy hour because I just live too far away (it’s 4+ hours for me to get to the DC area). I look forward to getting involved with the club and learning from you!
Thanks Mosered. Any idea if the admins are monitoring help requests during the off season? I sent a message asking about new member swag delivery (you know, the club sending me the sticker, water bottle, and T-shirt) as well as inquiring about remote attendance options for the season planning seminar that is occurring in Jan.
