While only a handful of races remain on our calendar for 2015, that still leaves LOTS of opportunity to get involved in our wonderful sport. This first few months with Triathlon New Brunswick has been a whirlwind for me and I’ve been overwhelmed by the welcoming and committed athletes and organizers I’ve had the pleasure of meeting all across our province.
Seeing athletes of all experience and abilities push themselves to their limits and cross the finish line with (usually) a smile on their face is inspirational to say the least. It goes beyond the athletes though – behind each of them are friends, family, coaches and others who help them to achieve their goals. The community that our sport encompasses is one that you can only appreciate when you see it first hand.
If you haven’t taken the opportunity yet this season, come out to the Sackville Triathlon, the Rockwood Relays or the Xterra Woolsatock – each an exciting and unique event. You can also check out the future triathlon stars of the future at the Rockwood Kids of Steel.
Finally, the end of our season will bring about the crowning of our Subaru East Coast Triathlon Series champions and our year end AGM and banquet, hosted by the South East Storm triathlon club in Moncton (details will be forthcoming).
Hoping to see you on course or cheering on our amazing athletes!
Yours in triathlon,
Triathlon New Brunswick
