Resolution Classic 5K
We are up to 92 entries as of Monday morning. This race benefits us but if I don't get 200 runners we lose money. I either need your participation and/or I need you to help get the word out. If you are on Facebook, please post the link. If you belong to another club or fitness center ask them to help promote the race.  We have over 300 members in the club and you all benefit one way or another by being on the club so PLEASE help spread the word.

The date will be Wednesday January 1, 2014 at 10:00 AM. 

We will do some tailgating in the gym after the race. Here is a link to sign up to bring something.

I need volunteers for out on the course. Contact Tricia Reilly at if you can help.

Click here to register for the race by December 27.  Race day registration starts at 9:00 AM.

I will run a swim practice that morning 7:00-8:15 and there may be a spinning class 8:30-9:30 so you can start the new year with a sprint tri.

Clipless Pedals
So maybe you got your first set of clipless pedals and shoes for Christmas. Here are some tips to avoid the embarrassment we have all had.

Devilman and Club Challenge
Please be sure to put this race on your calendar for 2014. See information below from Neil Semmel, the race director.

I believe we’ll be good to add the DU for NJD for both distances.  In both of these due to logistics and layout of the land, they will start with a 2 mile run followed by remaining distances being the same. 
New Jersey Devilman Half Lite 50 DUATHLON = 2 mile run, 40.3 mile bike, 8.8 mile run.
New Jersey Devilman Sprint (technically is considered international distance) = 2 mile run, 20.5 mile bike, 4 mile run. 
I’m considering offering $1,000 cash as kick off to the Club Challenge at NJD to top 3 clubs broken down as follows:  $500 for first, $300 for second, $200 for third. 

In the meantime, we could use some sponsors if anyone can recommend anyone for this “kick off concept” as we’ll be paying out more cash and will probably create some trophies and/or banners that shows “winner, etc.”.  Please feel  free to recommend someone or put me in touch – if you don’t mind.

Merry Christmas!
