Sunday, December 8th marked my last Board meeting as President of the Cleveland Triathlon Club. It has been an honor to serve all of you and it has been a pleasure to work side by side with such a fantastic group of people over the years. While a new CTC president has not been named for 2020, the current board has decided that a leadership committee will lead the Board and CTC through 2020. During our final meeting of 2020 we added some fantastic people to the Board. I will leave the announcement of the new board members to the leadership committee and I’m sure you’ll have a list early next year. Bottom line, I feel comfortable leaving the helm of CTC to the new leadership and I truly believe CTC will continue to positively evolve under their guidance.
What’s next for me? My goal is to refocus my training and build a robust triathlon race schedule. As some of you know, I also enjoy sailing and I am exploring singlehanded solo racing through the Great Lakes Singlehanded Society. I have my eye on the 312 mile Lake Erie Solo Challenge which would require me to non-stop solo sail the length of Lake Erie from the west near Monroe, MI to a turnaround point in the east near Buffalo, NY and finishing in Erie, PA. Last, but most important Judie and I will be tying the knot in May of 2021.
I wish all of you good luck in your races and I hope you all accomplish the goals you set out to tackle. Have a joyous holiday season and happy and healthy New Year.
