Letter from the President

 First race of the series is this month, come out and race, cheer or volunteer with your team! Let’s have a great crowd to kick off the race season!
Check out the two new sections below, “Coaches tip of the month” from coaches Karen Buxton and Matt Clancy, and our “Recipe of the month” by our very own Chef Keith Gardiner. Both ideas were generated from the survey last month, so thank you for the great ideas!
Check out the google calendar on the TTT website, we will be updating and using it as our live events calendar for the year. Events will still be posted in the newsletter and FB.
Also, TTT kits can be ordered until Friday, Feb. 7th.
Thank you for being a great team and here’s to a great start to the tri love season!
See you out and about,

Athlete of the Month

Jeremy Yoemans
Say "hi" to Jeremy!
When out training with Jeremy, you will see how positive, energetic and supportive he is. He brings a great sense of humor to the team, which helps when we are out there suffering! When asked what his go to meal before a race is, he says, “Usually chicken risotto with butternut squash (made by my amazing wife)”, everybody say awwwww.
His favorite triathlon is the   High Point Sprint Triathlon, where Jeremy and his family present the award to the first time triathlete award in honor of his brother.

If you see Jeremy, be sure to congratulate him on being our AOM!

Develop a Feel for the Water
Developing a solid “feel” for the water can enhance your technique and in turn help you become a faster swimmer. Improving your technique is not possible unless you can feel the subtle changes in water pressure on your body, arms, hands, legs and feet as you move through the water. Piling on the yards, just grinding out the laps, is not necessarily the quickest and most effective way to improve your swimming. However, developing solid technique through improving your feel for the water is a great step you can take to improve your swim time. Developing a better feel for the water takes time, patience and practice. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to include various sculling drills in your swim sessions.
