Letter from the President

Dear Fellow CNY Tri Club Members!

Happy 2012! I hope your wishes for this year come true.

We are now in the new membership year. If you WERE a 2011 member, please register for 2012 now if you plan on using the WTF. If you aren’t sure of your membership status, you can check the frequently updated list on the club website.

I expect the WTF to be packed now as all of you athletes begin thinking about your upcoming races. They’ll be here before you know it! Green Lakes opens registration today, the Caz Tri will open up soon, and Syracuse 70.3 comes earlier this year.

Our elections will be coming up soon. If you are interested in helping the club make decisions, please let me know you are interested in running for the board.

We’ll keep it short this month. Happy New Year!

Thanks!

Sam

President CNY Triathlon Club

Board Meeting

The January Board of Directors meeting will be held

2012 CNY Triathlon Club Registration Open

Make sure you don’t miss out on the great happenings at the WTF by letting your CNY Tri membership expire! Get the most out of your membership by renewing early and taking advantage of the programs the club has during the winter.

2011 memberships expired on December 31, 2011.
Questions?  Contact membership <at> cnytriathlon.org
Registration for the Cazenovia Triathlon

Registration for the 13th Annual Caz Tri will open January 3, 2012. Race date for 2012 is Sunday, August 12.

We’re looking for several key leaders / volunteers (bike & run course leads among them). Your services will not go unrewarded. Historically Caz leads have been afforded some nice tri related perks. So in addition to having the satisfaction of pulling your weight for the club and the fell good that comes from volunteering, you may get yourself some good tri swag.

Any questions, email jdpaustin <at> juno.com

Ironman Syracuse 70.3

Although it is hard to believe, January is here! Soon it will be time to put away the holiday decorations, think about New Year’s resolutions, and start planning the 2012 race schedule. We will spend hours searching the web, trying to figure out where our travels will take us, looking for accommodations, seeing what the family can do in the short time you are there, etc. This year we suggest you also support an international race, taking place in your own back yard.

With a new date of June 24, 2012, the Ironman 70.3 Syracuse will return for the third straight year. The event consists of a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike and 13.1-mile run, and it’s all held in the beautiful landscape of Central New York that we call home. Over the past two years, this event has seen tremendous support from the CNY Triathlon Club, and we are hoping that in 2012 we can make that presence even more widely known. With a goal of closing the event at 2100 people, don’t miss out on your opportunity to register and support this local event. For more information, visit www.ironmansyracuse.com or join us at Facebook.com/IronmanSyracuse.

Registration for the 2012 LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Green Lakes Triathlon

The 2012 LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Green Lakes Triathlon will be held on Saturday June 9.  Whether you volunteer or compete, you will be joining the fight against cancer.  Proceeds from the event help the YMCA provide free programs and services to cancer survivors, including a 12-week group exercise and support program designed to meet the special needs of those fighting the disease.

Triathlon registration will open up to YMCA of Greater Syracuse members on Monday,January 2, 2012. Registration will open to the general public via Active.com at 1 p.m. EST, Sunday, February 5, 2012. To maintain a quality event, we again are limiting totalregistrations to 450.

There are a few changes for 2012:

  • There will still be three swim waves but they won’t be divided by anticipated swim times. Instead, wave one will be for males, wave two will be for females, and wave three will be for teams and those who may wish to swim in a less hectic wave. The waves will continue to be five minutes apart.
  • We are implementing a finish time cut-off this year. While we regret doing it, it is in the best interest of all of our great volunteers. Specifically, we reserve the right to pull participants after the bike leg if we anticipate they will be unable to finish the entire race in two hours and fifteen minutes.
  • Participant shirts this year will be sized male and female.

For more information about the 2012 LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Green Lakes Race Weekend, please visit our website and check back for updates as the event approaches. We’ll also send you occasional updates by e-mail.

Photos Needed!

We are looking to decorate the WTF with some photos of our members.  If you have any photos that you purchased from races that are good (YES!  They do exist!) and/or photos with you racing in CNY Tri gear, bring it with you next time you visit the WTF.  We want to create a member wall with those photos.

Bike Box Loaner Program

The CNY Tri Club has two metal bike boxes for shipping your bike to that distant triathlon that you want to compete in.  To use a bike box, you must be a CNY Tri Club member.

In order to reserve a box, simply call ahead.  The boxes will be available for pick up from Syracuse Bicycle on Erie Blvd, Syracuse (446-6816) or Multisport Physical Therapy on First St, Suite B, Liverpool (451-2270).

Member Profile

Name: Debbie Sindone

Tell us about yourself. I am 44 and have been married to my husband Dan for 10 years.  We have a beautiful son Alex who is seven going on 18 and a black Lab/German Shepherd mix Campbell who is eight going on two. I work part time at a non-profit organization and also act as the Volunteer Director of the Empire State Marathon.


Me and Kathrine Switzer at the Empire State Marathon Expo

How long have you been involved in Triathlon and what made you take it up? My first triathlon was the 2010 Iron Girl Syracuse.  In 2011 I did three sprints including Green Lakes, Iron Girl, and the River Rat in Clayton which turned into a duathlon because of Hurricane Irene.  I’m not really sure why I got interested in triathlon.  I think the thing that got me interested was reading an excerpt from a book called Slow Fat Triathlete from Jayne Williams.  I was intrigued after reading it and was on my bucket list ever since.  Finally in 2010 I decided to take the plunge and the rest is history.


In transition before Iron Girl 2011

Who is your Hero? I would have to say my late maternal grandmother (AKA “Nana”) Elaine.  The one thing I always remember about her is her laugh.  The day my grandfather died, my mom and I drove up to Saranac Lake to her house and the entire time I dreaded going into the house and not hearing her laugh.  But the first thing I heard when I walked into the house was her laugh in the distance.  I learned from her that day to always try to keep a bright outlook on things even when things aren’t all that great.

What is your athletic background? I was always one of the last kids picked in gym class in elementary school, but the sport of volleyball changed that.  I played in middle and high school and picked it up again later in life and played on a USA Volleyball club team.  In addition to triathlon, I like to downhill ski with my husband (he is on the National Ski Patrol at Labrador Mountain) and also golf.

What are your Triathlon strengths and weaknesses? I think my strength is my stubborness.  It will take me awhile to convince myself that I can do something, but once I set out to do it, I won’t give up.  I’m also pretty analytical, so I like to look at my training and race data to see how I can improve.

My weaknesses are too numerous to list.  I’m pretty slow at everything, but I figure slow and steady will get me to the finish line…I’m not looking to win any medals out there.

What was your first triathlon and what do you remember most? My first triathlon was the Iron Girl 2010 and the thing I remember the most was crossing the finish line.  Since it was my first, I really didn’t go all out during the race, so I had a lot left in the tank as I was coming to the finish.  I saw my husband and son along the fence and gave them high 5’s as I ran by.  Then I started sprinting and I couldn’t believe how fast my legs were going.  It almost felt light I floated across the finish line…very sureal!


Floating across the Iron Girl finish line

What is your favorite race and why? I’ve only done a few, so I’d have to say Iron Girl is my favorite so far.  It’s the only one I’ve done more than once, so I like that I have data to compare from the two years.

What was your worst race and why? Again, not many under my belt, so I would have to say 2011 Green Lakes.  I was very disappointed in my run.

What are this year’s goals? Hmmm…still trying to figure it out, but here is my tentative plan:

  1. Complete my first half marathon: Lake Effect Half on Feb 25
  2. MAYBE complete my first 70.3: Ironman Syracuse (Coach Kelly is probably saying, “What do you mean MAYBE?!?!”)
  3. Improve on Iron Girl time
  4. Complete the River Rat TRIathlon…hopefully no DUathlon this year!
  5. Overall, just improve my swim technique and speed on the bike and running

Something most people don’t know about you: I love making crafty things especially things with a triathlon or running twist.  I also joined Team Tough Chik this year and am looking forward to representing them at local races.
