Last night in NYC we kicked off the first Racetwitch Meetup. Many friends around the country have asked me, are you having one near my home. Well the answer is yes and we are currently selecting the best locations with passionate endurance athletes.
In addition to meeting new endurance friends and learning about their backgrounds we listened to Jennifer Steinman discuss her adventures of filming the Racing The Planet 4 Desert Running Series. It sounded like plenty of life changing experiences for Jennifer and the athletes. These races sound brutal but of course sparked an interest from some of us attending last night, yes that would be me of course!
Carrying all supplies including water, etc. each day through the hot desserts sounds extremely difficult for sure.
We learned about Alejandra Reagan's CityTri racing series in NJ and NY areas. Definitely check out the series of triathlons/duathlons at www.citytri.com and their fall Duathlon is coming up November 7th.
Also, great info on training camps in the Hudson Valley from Ed at Open Sky Training, www.openskytraining.com
It was great to get things moving with the RaceTwitch Meetup and looking forward to growth in NYC and other cities year you.
Personally a big thanks to RaceTwitch Pro Team Member, Laura Demeo for all the help in coordinating everything and of course our guest speaker Jennifer Steinman. I can't wait to see the final product (movie or DVD) from Jennifer and we will get the word out to all of the RaceTwitch tribe, stay tuned.
