January 2018 message from President Allison Brown
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great holiday season and are finding ways to keep warm despite the deep freeze we’ve been in over the last few weeks.
Please don’t forget to join us for two events this month. On January 13, Alex Shefflette of ProRehab will be offering a mini-clinic on injury prevention. Now is the time to start building the foundation for a happy and healthy 2018 racing season. Also, please plan to join us for our annual kickoff on January 19 at the Ice House in downtown Louisville! We’ll have food, music, visits from our sponsors, and some fun surprises as well. Tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/l ouisville-landsharks-season-ki ck-off-tickets-41386634538. Please note that while tickets are free, you’ll need to register in advance to ensure we have enough food for everyone. This is always a fun night and a great chance to reconnect with your fellow Sharks.
Finally, as you get started on tackling the new year, don’t be afraid to set big goals. Whether you want to complete your first tri ever, set a PR, or push yourself to a 140.6 for the first time (or the tenth…), go for it! There’s no time like the present. Set your target and make a plan to get there. Not sure what to do? Ask. We’re lucky to have some incredible resources right here in our community. Whether you have a question about training, gear, injury prevention, or just how to get your dang wetsuit on – there’s someone who can help. Don’t hesitate to reach out. And, if you’re a seasoned veteran – please don’t pass up the opportunity to offer a helping hand or friendly advice to someone who’s just starting out. We were all new once!
Here’s to an amazing 2018 – go Sharks!
