Triathlon Season is here! If you haven't seen the promo video from Trivium Racing, I highly suggest you check it out. Just a little triathlon humor featuring 3 Triad Triathlon Team members...
Triathlon Season is Coming...
In fact the Triathlon Season kicks off on April 11th with the Belews Lake International Triathlon. This triathlon is perfect for athletes of all abilities. The swim is likely the best lake swim a novice swimmer can have with a Time Trail, stagerred swim start in the warm (warmer than anything else around) waters of Belews Lake. The Bike course is as close as you can get to flat for the region, and the out and back run ends with a PR producing 0.5 mile downhill! The TTT will be out there in full force with our team tent. Sign up for the race and come say hi! This race is also the first in the TTT Race series. Participants, (racing or volunteering) will earn points towards the TTT Athlete of the year! This distinction will make you the envy of everyone within 100 miles AND you'll get a as of yet unspecified gift. :-)
ATHLETE OF THE MONTH!
The TTT Athlete of the month is Cari Ossenfort! Cari recently moved to the Triad and has already made an impact on the team through her willingness to participate and cheer on fellow team members. When she's not traveling the world, she can be found swimming, biking, or running. A multiple time Iron and half Iron finisher, Cari is highly motivated and inspirational.

APRIL TEAM MEETING
Once again, our monthly team meeting will be merged with an other awesome team event! The TTT Open Water Swim Clinic and Family Day will take place at the Ebenezer Recreation Area (Shelter #1) at Jordan Lake on Sunday April 12th. The venue is great for the open water clinic and also has a beach perfect for families. Come any time from 1pm - 5pm. The clinic will be from 2pm-3pm.
