August message from President Todd Swartz
Wow! This season is moving by quickly! The weather is tough to predict and has put a damper on some of our training events, but we still found a way to have fun. We had a couple of fun July events in the Thirsty Peddler as well as great turnout at the Social at Jeffersonville’s “The Parlour” Pizzeria. These types of events allow us to meet other members we might have missed in our hectic training schedules. I hope we continue to get great turnout and comradery.
As far as racing goes, we had a great showing at both the July 70.3 distance races! Even with a smaller crew than years past, we won first in our division at Muncie. We also took second in IM Ohio, but only by a small margin. We had a crew of over 30 racing Ohio and everyone had a blast! Let’s turn our sights onto the Tri-Fecta and Landshark Tri races in the coming month and support them all we can…
With all the great things going on in the club, I do have one very sad piece of news. One of our fellow Landsharks, Dave Miller, was in a very serious bike accident and will have a long road to recovery. For those that may not know Dave, the old saying it so true…. “It could not have happened to a nicer guy!” I first met Dave at 2016 IM Muncie and he is an incredibly kind and generous person. I still recall when he finished the race that he had a bunch of Sharks cheering him across the finish and he was blown away by the support and thrilled with his own accomplishment. Let’s continue to keep Dave and his family in our thoughts and prayers. There will be more to come on that….
As always, lets continue to train hard and train wisely.
I hope to see you out there.
