Randy Hadzor

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Name:  Randy Hadzor

Tell us about yourself.  

I grew up right here in Syracuse, New York, went to college at Monmouth University in New Jersey, moved back to the area and co-founded a design firm called Variety Studios. I do running races,  bicycles races of all sorts,  and multisport races; racing for the Mello Velo cycling contingent and the WoolSports multisport team!

 

How long have you been involved in Triathlon and what made you take it up? 

I’ve been involved with triathlon for about 3 years now. I suppose the whole order of events leading up to it started way back… I ran Division 1 cross country, indoor and outdoor track (distance and steeplechase) at Monmouth University in New Jersey.  At school, we somehow got set up as product testers for the ‘new’ Garmin 305 forerunners.  Towards the end of college I was having issues with Achilles tendonitis, and occasionally I would have to ride the bike to keep fitness up.  It was fascinating to see your course mapped and the exact distance no matter where you chose to run… it was great not having to drive the course to figure out the distance! So, as awesome as that was with running, biking was exponentially more cool, as you could go even further. Especially the summer before graduation, when I would commute from my parents’ house in LaFayette to my internship at Eric Mower & Associates in Syracuse; then as much as possible exploring the roads south, east and west of Syracuse, and all around on Route 20. After school, rather than a suit or some other professional / scholarly mumbo jumbo, my family got me a bicycle as a graduation present. No longer did I have to steal my dad’s Trek, with the ol’ down tube shifters, to zip up and down Route 20. Being able to switch gears with the flick of a finger was pretty much the most amazing invention ever!

After 4 years of running, I was getting a little tired of all the running and I took time off to just have fun, relax, and ended up riding a lot. At this time I was living with my brother in Otisco and commuting to work at Fleet Feet in Syracuse, where I first started professionally mixing art and athletics by doing marketing, graphics, etc.  After a couple months off, I realized I had signed up for the Lake Placid Marathon and realized just how close it was. So I upped the running miles, survived the Marathon, and did trail runs including the Virgil Mountain Madness and Monster Half type trail runs; trail runs were the coolest. Then that summer the real fun started when a friend from college suggested I come down do this ‘sprint tri’ thing down in New Jersey.

 

 

Who is your Hero? 

This is a tough one. There are a lot of people I think of randomly that are super inspiring in all different aspects of life… when thinking about hard work and sports in general I see quick images of athletes like Jaromir Jagr, Ulf Sammuelson, Wayne Gretzky, Tie Domi; even dudes like Lopez Lamong, Anthony Famiglietti, and more recently people like Fabian Cancellara for being so fast people could accuse him of having a motor on the bicycle, Graeme Obree for ripping apart everyday appliances to create faster bicycles, and then artists like Space Invader that turn everyday life into an interesting adventure using art, wit and no doubt some sick climbing skills… But all said and done, my hero is probably my dad. He’s taught me the most about hard work, doing the right thing, working hard and being in control of your own success; he’s even upping the ante this year as we’ll both be competing in age group world championships though he’s in the more cut throat 60+ category…

What is your athletic background?

I started playing hockey and lacrosse when I was about 5. For the first few years, playing hockey for the Valley Eagles then eventually the Syracuse Stars, and playing lacrosse for the Onondaga Athletic Club Warriors (now called the Redhawks). We would play all year round, traveling mostly to Canada for both hockey and box lacrosse. I have fond memories of dressing in cars and racing across Canadian towns changing from lax arm shells to hockey shin guards in the back seat… this is actually the origin of my multisport career no doubt. It was all contact sports until in high school where I stopped playing football and started running cross country, mostly to get faster for lacrosse and stay fit for hockey, and then eventually indoor and outdoor track. Our high school, LaFayette, didn’t have track but I transferred from a different school and the first year at LaFayette played hockey at Corcoran. The next year, I was able to kind of start our own mini team and train with the great folks at Faith Heritage where open hallways and stairs actually made a pretty fun practice ‘track’. Then I went on to run cross country, distance and steeple chase at Monmouth University.

 

What are your Triathlon strengths and weaknesses?

I love hills; both on the bicycle and running. I’m not a very smooth swimmer.

What was your first triathlon and what do you remember most?

Ok, so my friend Beard suggested we do this sprint tri that started on the beach in Longbranch, NJ, where you swam in the ocean, then biked and ran basically in the same neighborhood that we practiced everyday all year round for MUXC &TF.  So, Sarah and I went down to visit and give it a try. It was a blast! I swallowed a lot of salt water and had a lot of fun catching all the people in funny hats (aero helmets), on shiny bicycles, and with whirring fancy wheels… it was a relatively short ride and I took each corner faster and faster — until the last turn, before the final straight away back to transition.. this turn happened to be a particularly wet and sandy turn — I ended up sliding across the sandy pavement on my chest nearly losing my nipple, dropping my chain, and even worse, scuffing up my bar tape! Luckily, no one else was involved. I slid the entire width of the road, the crash just heaped on more adrenaline. I righted the bicycle and was about to go, but of course, the chain was no longer on the gears, so I lost a bunch of places — I managed to get the chain on with shaking, no grease covered fingers, and took off hammering… back into transition and then a pretty quick transition; jamming sandy, sockless feet into shoes, then off on the run. I caught a couple of the folks that had passed me and finished up 4th.  That evening we went to an Italian restaurant we used to frequent in school, relaxing, joking, having a beer, etc. reflecting on the new adventure that Beard, Sarah, and I had just endured… despite how much water I drank, it seems Beard had beaten me in that department, resulting in a very uncomfortable stomach and maybe even a DNF… Halfway through dinner I got a call from my dad asking if I was ready for the race tomorrow. I asked “What are you talking about?” He said “Yea, I see here online that registration is at 5:30am in Asbury for the Born to Tri Sprint Triathlon”.  So needless to say, we put the beers down, finish up dinner and headed to sleep. We woke up dark and early. Sarah and I registered for our second ever triathlon under the parking lot lights of the famous Asbury Casino. At first the salt water stung on my chest, but we had a while to float around and get used to the water before the gun went off. The race was a blast! After, we had bagels and chocolate milk and as we were peeking in some of the windows of the shops and galleries of the Asbury Parlor Gallery on Cookman Street, a yoga class was about to start, so they invited us in for a free sample. I didn’t know much about yoga at the time, but it certainly felt good to stretch a bit while being able to look at the cool art on the walls.  All the yogis thought we were a little nuts (with giant sharpie numbers scribbled all over our limbs)  to have done the event that shut down all the streets on this odd summer weekend morning… I’ve been hooked on multisport since.

What is your favorite race and why? 

I’ve been focusing on duathlons (run, bike, run) last year and this coming year; the coolest so far was probably the American Zofingen which is in the Catskills,  it consists of a 5 mile trail run followed by an 84 mile hilly bike and finishes with a 15 mile trail run.

It’s hard to really pick a favorite race, there are so many ridiculously fun races, and it’s a tough call between any of the Cyclocross races across the state.  I’m a big fan of the Caz Tri, Delta Lake, and the two original races we did in ‘Jersey,  the Black Fly, Tour de Syracuse, Tour of the Catskills (stage races are wicked fun)… basically, anything that’s hilly, long.

What was your worst race and why?   

My worst race was probably the NEC conference championship steeple chase race my last year of school. I had been battling achilles injuries on and off for a while and despite all effort it really sucks to have the field pull away ever so slowly and not being able to respond to it.

 

What are this year’s goals?  

This year my main goals are two World Championship Duathlons. The first is Powerman World Championships on September 2nd in Zofingen, Switzerland.  The second is the ITU Standard Course Duathlon World Championships, September 20th in Nancy France, where I’ll be racing for Team USA.  (**SEE BELOW TO HELP RANDY RAISE SOME MONEY!**)

In five years you hope to … 

be racing at an elite international level in endurance athletics, be it cycling, tri, or du and/or to continue doing fun and interesting art / design work while continuing to grow Variety Studios.

Something most people don’t know about you:  

During high school when the politics of team sports started to get tiresome, and before I started running all three seasons, I got into training for boxing… nothing beats after having doubles for cross country, hockey practice, and going to boxing for an hour and a half or so, then upon first effort not being able to lift your arms to get a shirt off the top shelf of your closet.

We start the Wednesday Night Duathlon series on May 9th  at Gillie Lake, Jamesville Beach and Oneida Shores.  If you are new to the club the duathlon is a run, bike, run.  However, it is your training and you chose what you want to do!  Be sure to tell the site directors, Jim, Mike, Andy, Kristin and Eric thank you when you see them.  They are giving up their Wednesday evenings to make sure members have a great training season.

This month members will be receiving the “Club Rules.”  Please take a moment to go over them.  We want to make sure all of our members train safely.   We will also have the rules listed on our website.  Speaking of the website!
New and improved website!  The website has gone through a complete OVERHAUL! It has a brand new look and we will be working on the content in the coming weeks.  As with everything, good things come in time, so be patient with us as we work on the inside of the website.  BUT, take a look and let us know what you think!  Thank you to Randy Hadzor for working so hard on this project!
The Membership Orientations were a huge success!  Each session had a large crowd and it was great to meet so many club members.  We want to thank everyone that participated, especially, Ben Rabin who came out to talk about the rights cyclist have out on the road! Thank you, Ben! As I mentioned in the orientations, this is your club and with it being your club comes some responsibility.  Which is…yes…I am going to say it…volunteering.  We have a great club with many offerings, but we need volunteers to run them successfully.  We have outlined below the cancellation policy for if there are not enough volunteers.  To volunteer go to our website and find the training site.  On the training sites web page there will be a spreadsheet for you sign up for volunteer spots.  Any questions email volunteers@cnytriathlon.org
Want to wish all the members running the Mountain Goat GOOD LUCK! 
See you out there! Email me with any questions, concerns or suggestions!

Cancellation Policy for Wednesday Night Training

 

If we do not have enough volunteers for any one of the training sites all THREE sites will be cancelled.  We understand that Wednesday Night is your training, but if there are no volunteers to run the events, then there is no training for anyone.  We cannot close one site because we cannot overload the other two.  The Volunteer Director will send an email on Sunday to the CNY Tri listserv and Facebook page with volunteer needs.  If by Tuesday at NOON we do not have enough volunteers we will cancel the Wednesday Night training for all locations.  The reason for cancelling on Tuesday is so we have enough time to notify the parks and lifeguards. 

We will also use the Facebook page, CNY Tri Listserv and website to notify cancellations due to weather or bad conditions.

 

Trashman 2012 Report

Trashman 

 

CNY TRI was out in force in on Apulia Road April 28th to pick up trash on our adopted roadway.  Forty six club members  braved temperatures in the mid 30′s to do our annual spring clean up and a half dozen or so intrepid souls followed that up with a bike ride, and several others chose to run. We had so many volunteers we were able to extend our clean up beyond our designated one mile zone.  Bob Burton got the award for finding the largest and most unique piece of junk- a fender.  Volunteers earned volunteer incentive points and a priority slot in a club open water swim of their choice.  

 

Thank you Trashmen! We will do this again later in the year.

KIDS TRI PROGRAM – CAP AT 70 and REGISTRATION INFO

CNY Tri club is proud to bring back the Kids Tri Club again this year. Last year was our first year having a program for the kids and we had a huge turnout – 55 kids.  This year we are capping the number of kids to  70! 

 

The Kids Tri Club will meet on Tuesdays at 6:15pm at Jamesville Beach (dates on the club website) with coaches Mary Jo Galletta and Kristen Roe. The Kids Tri Club is geared for children ages 7 to 13 and are comfortable swimming in open water, biking and running.   Kids are divided into three different categories depending on what they are most comfortable with; Mini, Sprint & Olympic distances. Kids will learn how to set up a transition area to make for smooth transitions, fuel the body before and after racing, along with other tips.  But the best part is that they will have fun while doing all of it.

 

Children and parent(s) MUST be current members in order for the child or children to participate in the Kids Tri Club program.  You can register under the family membership – see membership page to register.  Parents are asked to be volunteers for this event and MUST be present on site the entire time.  

 

Children need to bring their own swim cap, goggles, bike, helmet, running gear, transition towel and a water bottle for the training sessions.

 

Parents must register their kids by JUNE 1st!   To register email: Parent’s name, child or children names, age(s), t-shirt size(s) for the child or children and a contact email to Mary Jo Galletta at: mgalletta <at> twcny.rr.com

Free Transition Clinic

A triathlon has a start line and a finish line – everything in between is a triathlon.  That is swim, bike, run, and transitions.  People underestimate the time savings that exists in transitions; I’ve seen folks train all year to shave off 10-20 seconds per mile on the run, only to throw all that hard work away in T1.

Join NWT coach and local triathlete Mike Corona for a FREE transition clinic at 5:30 PM on May 3rd at Green Lakes State Park.  Mike will share the tips and tactics he uses to be the first one out of transition – clearly he backs up what he preaches with results:

  • 2010 1st overall in T1 & T2, 2nd overall finisher, Du The Lakes Duathlon
  • 2010 1st overall in T1 & T2, 2nd overall finisher, Green Lakes Triathlon
  • 2011 1st overall in T1 & T2, 1st overall finisher, Du the Lakes Duathlon
  • 2011 1st overall in T1 & T2, 1st overall finisher, Green Lakes Triathlon
  • 2011 1st overall in T1 & T2, 4th overall finisher, Cazenovia Triathlon
What do you bring?

Everything you bring for a race:

  • Wetsuit
  • Bike
  • Cycling shoes
  • Helmet
  • Running shoes
  • Race belt
Speedy transition is not an athletic skill base that requires an adaptation like swimming, biking and running; therefore, anyone can become faster over a period of days!  Triathlon is ONE sport that people often confuse as three separate sports.  Every second counts!

Space is limited, so please register for this free event by emailing: jen_corona <at> yahoo.com

Member Profile

Name:  Randy Hadzor

Tell us about yourself.  

I grew up right here in Syracuse, New York, went to college at Monmouth University in New Jersey, moved back to the area and co-founded a design firm called Variety Studios. I do running races,  bicycles races of all sorts,  and multisport races; racing for the Mello Velo cycling contingent and the WoolSports multisport team!

 

  

How long have you been involved in Triathlon and what made you take it up?  

I’ve been involved with triathlon for about 3 years now. I suppose the whole order of events leading up to it started way back… I ran Division 1 cross country, indoor and outdoor track (distance and steeplechase) at Monmouth University in New Jersey.  At school, we somehow got set up as product testers for the ‘new’ Garmin 305 forerunners.  Towards the end of college I was having issues with Achilles tendonitis, and occasionally I would have to ride the bike to keep fitness up.  It was fascinating to see your course mapped and the exact distance no matter where you chose to run… it was great not having to drive the course to figure out the distance! So, as awesome as that was with running, biking was exponentially more cool, as you could go even further. Especially the summer before graduation, when I would commute from my parents’ house in LaFayette to my internship at Eric Mower & Associates in Syracuse; then as much as possible exploring the roads south, east and west of Syracuse, and all around on Route 20. After school, rather than a suit or some other professional / scholarly mumbo jumbo, my family got me a bicycle as a graduation present. No longer did I have to steal my dad’s Trek, with the ol’ down tube shifters, to zip up and down Route 20. Being able to switch gears with the flick of a finger was pretty much the most amazing invention ever! 

After 4 years of running, I was getting a little tired of all the running and I took time off to just have fun, relax, and ended up riding a lot. At this time I was living with my brother in Otisco and commuting to work at Fleet Feet in Syracuse, where I first started professionally mixing art and athletics by doing marketing, graphics, etc.  After a couple months off, I realized I had signed up for the Lake Placid Marathon and realized just how close it was. So I upped the running miles, survived the Marathon, and did trail runs including the Virgil Mountain Madness and Monster Half type trail runs; trail runs were the coolest. Then that summer the real fun started when a friend from college suggested I come down do this ‘sprint tri’ thing down in New Jersey.

 

 

Who is your Hero? 

This is a tough one. There are a lot of people I think of randomly that are super inspiring in all different aspects of life… when thinking about hard work and sports in general I see quick images of athletes like Jaromir Jagr, Ulf Sammuelson, Wayne Gretzky, Tie Domi; even dudes like Lopez Lamong, Anthony Famiglietti, and more recently people like Fabian Cancellara for being so fast people could accuse him of having a motor on the bicycle, Graeme Obree for ripping apart everyday appliances to create faster bicycles, and then artists like Space Invader that turn everyday life into an interesting adventure using art, wit and no doubt some sick climbing skills… But all said and done, my hero is probably my dad. He’s taught me the most about hard work, doing the right thing, working hard and being in control of your own success; he’s even upping the ante this year as we’ll both be competing in age group world championships though he’s in the more cut throat 60+ category…

What is your athletic background?

I started playing hockey and lacrosse when I was about 5. For the first few years, playing hockey for the Valley Eagles then eventually the Syracuse Stars, and playing lacrosse for the Onondaga Athletic Club Warriors (now called the Redhawks). We would play all year round, traveling mostly to Canada for both hockey and box lacrosse. I have fond memories of dressing in cars and racing across Canadian towns changing from lax arm shells to hockey shin guards in the back seat… this is actually the origin of my multisport career no doubt. It was all contact sports until in high school where I stopped playing football and started running cross country, mostly to get faster for lacrosse and stay fit for hockey, and then eventually indoor and outdoor track. Our high school, LaFayette, didn’t have track but I transferred from a different school and the first year at LaFayette played hockey at Corcoran. The next year, I was able to kind of start our own mini team and train with the great folks at Faith Heritage where open hallways and stairs actually made a pretty fun practice ‘track’. Then I went on to run cross country, distance and steeple chase at Monmouth University.

 

What are your Triathlon strengths and weaknesses?

I love hills; both on the bicycle and running. I’m not a very smooth swimmer.

What was your first triathlon and what do you remember most?

Ok, so my friend Beard suggested we do this sprint tri that started on the beach in Longbranch, NJ, where you swam in the ocean, then biked and ran basically in the same neighborhood that we practiced everyday all year round for MUXC &TF.  So, Sarah and I went down to visit and give it a try. It was a blast! I swallowed a lot of salt water and had a lot of fun catching all the people in funny hats (aero helmets), on shiny bicycles, and with whirring fancy wheels… it was a relatively short ride and I took each corner faster and faster — until the last turn, before the final straight away back to transition.. this turn happened to be a particularly wet and sandy turn — I ended up sliding across the sandy pavement on my chest nearly losing my nipple, dropping my chain, and even worse, scuffing up my bar tape! Luckily, no one else was involved. I slid the entire width of the road, the crash just heaped on more adrenaline. I righted the bicycle and was about to go, but of course, the chain was no longer on the gears, so I lost a bunch of places — I managed to get the chain on with shaking, no grease covered fingers, and took off hammering… back into transition and then a pretty quick transition; jamming sandy, sockless feet into shoes, then off on the run. I caught a couple of the folks that had passed me and finished up 4th.  That evening we went to an Italian restaurant we used to frequent in school, relaxing, joking, having a beer, etc. reflecting on the new adventure that Beard, Sarah, and I had just endured… despite how much water I drank, it seems Beard had beaten me in that department, resulting in a very uncomfortable stomach and maybe even a DNF… Halfway through dinner I got a call from my dad asking if I was ready for the race tomorrow. I asked “What are you talking about?” He said “Yea, I see here online that registration is at 5:30am in Asbury for the Born to Tri Sprint Triathlon”.  So needless to say, we put the beers down, finish up dinner and headed to sleep. We woke up dark and early. Sarah and I registered for our second ever triathlon under the parking lot lights of the famous Asbury Casino. At first the salt water stung on my chest, but we had a while to float around and get used to the water before the gun went off. The race was a blast! After, we had bagels and chocolate milk and as we were peeking in some of the windows of the shops and galleries of the Asbury Parlor Gallery on Cookman Street, a yoga class was about to start, so they invited us in for a free sample. I didn’t know much about yoga at the time, but it certainly felt good to stretch a bit while being able to look at the cool art on the walls.  All the yogis thought we were a little nuts (with giant sharpie numbers scribbled all over our limbs)  to have done the event that shut down all the streets on this odd summer weekend morning… I’ve been hooked on multisport since.

  

What is your favorite race and why? 

I’ve been focusing on duathlons (run, bike, run) last year and this coming year; the coolest so far was probably the American Zofingen which is in the Catskills,  it consists of a 5 mile trail run followed by an 84 mile hilly bike and finishes with a 15 mile trail run.

It’s hard to really pick a favorite race, there are so many ridiculously fun races, and it’s a tough call between any of the Cyclocross races across the state.  I’m a big fan of the Caz Tri, Delta Lake, and the two original races we did in ‘Jersey,  the Black Fly, Tour de Syracuse, Tour of the Catskills (stage races are wicked fun)… basically, anything that’s hilly, long.

What was your worst race and why?   

My worst race was probably the NEC conference championship steeple chase race my last year of school. I had been battling achilles injuries on and off for a while and despite all effort it really sucks to have the field pull away ever so slowly and not being able to respond to it.

What are this year’s goals?  

This year my main goals are two World Championship Duathlons. The first is Powerman World Championships on September 2nd in Zofingen, Switzerland.  The second is the ITU Standard Course Duathlon World Championships, September 20th in Nancy France, where I’ll be racing for Team USA.  (**SEE BELOW TO HELP RANDY RAISE SOME MONEY!**)

 

In five years you hope to … 

be racing at an elite international level in endurance athletics, be it cycling, tri, or du and/or to continue doing fun and interesting art / design work while continuing to grow Variety Studios.

Something most people don’t know about you:  

During high school when the politics of team sports started to get tiresome, and before I started running all three seasons, I got into training for boxing… nothing beats after having doubles for cross country, hockey practice, and going to boxing for an hour and a half or so, then upon first effort not being able to lift your arms to get a shirt off the top shelf of your closet.

CNY Tri’s Own Randy Hadzor on Team USA!

Last year’s results earned our very own Randy Hadzor All American status and a spot on Team USA for the ITU Standard Course Duathlon World Championships.  This event will take place September 22-23, 2012, in Nancy, France. 

Randy has posted the scoop on www.btbathletics.com. There is also a link to a Pay Pal donation page where the new motto is “Help turn pocket lint into plane tickets!” The Pay Pal page is: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=6E47BFLNB8QMU

Randy also intends to compete in the Powerman World Championships in Zofingen, Switzerland September 2nd – which he qualified for as an individual at Powerman Muncie last year.

Any help you can send Randy’s way is appreciated!! Let’s show the world what Central NY multisport athletes are made of!!
