We’ve been adding miles in the pool, on the bike and in our shoes as we gear up for some triathlon events throughout the summer. The first triathlon several of us will be racing in this year is the HFP Racing Maumee Bay State Park event on June 16. It won’t be long and we’ll be swimming in Lake Erie instead of the pool.
There are several new items to announce:
Firefighter Brian Hackenburg, the muscle behind the Turnout Challenge is trying to win a trip to the Kona Ironman. He is leading the first round of voting, but please be sure to keep voting and especially vote often when he gets into the finals.
Speaking of the Turnout Challenge, this is a fundraiser for the National Firefighters Endowment. FF Hackenburg is going to wear turnout gear for the marathon portion of the Cedar Point Rev3 Ironman on September 8, 2013 if he reaches his fundraising goal. Help him HERE. You can also get involved at the same link.
Tecgen Xtreme Leading The Sponsorship Path
A few weeks ago we were looking to put together jerseys for our little team. We wanted to unite behind Brian’s cause and really build upon the concept of improving firefighter fitness. Todd from Tecgen Xtreme, a non-structural turnout gear company, didn’t bat an eye at sponsoring the jerseys we will be wearing throughout the summer. Be sure to check out the TECGEN XTREME GEAR.
Interested In Sponsoring
We will be adding more to the TRIATHLON TRAINING page on the blog regularly this summer and throwing out a post after races. If anyone wants to get involved or swim, bike, or run with us be sure to send us a message. We will also be looking for a big crowd at the CP Rev3. It is at an amusement park in north central Ohio, so even the kids will have fun.
Pass it on!
