The beautiful sunrises and sunsets continue and those of us up early are blessed to see them. If you haven’t been getting up, take the time to see the sunrise one morning this week. I guarantee you will love it. Now onto the news.
Congrats to Fiona M, Dan M, Clinton M and Jane H who raced at Yeppoon on the weekend. It sounds like a hot and windy day out on the course and these four came and conquered. Both girls finished top 10 and Dan qualified for the 70.3 World Champs later this year in Hawaii. Great work everyone.
Congrats also to everyone who competed in Tough Mudder, TLC Fun Run, Lake Manchester trails and the TQ Jets Trials that were held on the weekend. Great racing from everyone and I believe all the Tough Mudder people are still extracting mud from their hair and their ears. Sounds like a fantastic, muddy day on the course.

INFO NIGHTS – the next in our series of info nights will be a Garmin Info Night on Wed 11th Sept, 7pm. Venue tba. Come along and find out all the wonderful things your Garmin can do to tell you how great your training is going! Everyone welcome
IM INFO NIGHT – This year we have over 60 RTC athletes competing in one of the IM races during the season. We will be having 2 information nights for these athletes to help you meet the others, talk over some basic information you need to know, training outlines and ideas, course information, and what RTC has got planned which includes a camp especially for IM competitors on the first weekend in January. The dates for these nights are Wed 25th Sept, with a second IM night on Fri 4th Oct (for those who can’t make a Wed night). We will also hold a night for partners of those doing IM to help meet others in the same boat, explain what the heck is going on, and offer practical options / ideas to survive their training. The meetings should take no longer than 75 mins with time to ask questions at the end. These are designed to give you all you need to know, but rather give you some ideas, concepts and outlines to help you plan your training and hopefully meet up with some others that can become your long course training buddies. Even if you have done IM before this meeting is for you.
