Happy New Year

ok so it seems ironic that the last time there was a post on the blog was on the second day of a new month and this time it is the second day of the second month in the new year. And with the new year comes a new season that everyone at fun2tri is excited about. Some of the things we can look forward to this season are:

- Ontario Summer Games

- Teck Junior Series

- Ontario Provincials

- 2013 Canada Games Test Race in Magog

So thats a lot of stuff that is going to take some hard work. Starting with Ontario Summer Games fun2tri is hoping to get as many athletes as possible on the start line this august. Since we have the reining female champion and male finalist we should be able to have some strong performances.

This season also marks the beginning of the junior careers for some more of our athletes and hopefully we will see them racing in some of the national junior series races over the course of the summer to get some great experience against some strong fields.

And once again Triathlon Ontario is hosting provincials in Ottawa. fun2tri saw some great racing in the U15 category so hopefully that will repeated as well. And only a week after that the junior series is stopping in Magog, QC and that course will most likely be used for the Canada Summer Games next year, and fun2tri is hoping to get some of our athletes on that team in 2013.

But of course this won't come without some hard work. Thanks to the Staples family for providing us with some space for our weekly trainer rides which are up and rolling about twice a week now. Most of the team is also spending some solid time in the pool, so hopefully we can bust out the running shoes soon and by race time we will be all set to have some great performances and pink the podium in the process.
