Merry Christmas from Team Triumph!

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thank you to everyone for your continued support of Team Triumph and for helping to grow our fun little club to over 60 active members! We've had a great year sending athletes to Hawaii for Ironman and Ultraman, the World Military Games in Korea and the World Championships in Chicago. It has been so amazing to see the pride on Triumpher's faces as they cross the finish line of their 1st triathlon in Perth, their 1st half Iron in Tremblant or beat a Personal Best time in their A race. I'm also happy to report that one of our team members collected another Tri Rudy award and has inspired other club members to do the same next year.

This past year saw the start of a volunteer driven Friday group ride and Monday morning open water swim allowing us to explore all kinds of fun and exciting new routes and adventures! We look forward to more adventures next Summer!

The Hawaiian holiday party was a hoot and we raised over $500 for Dress for Success Ottawa and received fabulous purses to donate to this charity for women returning to the work force in need of a little help.

Going forward into 2016 Team Triumph has 7 new bikes in our already busy indoor cycling studio making space for new members to join in on the FUN! The Yoga and Strength Training after the cycling has been a hit and we will continue to work on increasing flexibility and power next term. We have loads of space in our 3 swim practices at the Canterbury Pool where we will be ramping up the speed while we continue to tweak swim strokes.

I'm happy to report that the Utah Training Camp is on for April 3-10th and due to popular demand I have booked 2 more double suites to accommodate the overwhelming interest!

A special thank you to my friends and family who continue to be an ever important sounding board, to allow me to bounce ideas off and make Team Triumph even better! Happy Holidays to one and all and here's to a healthy and happy 2016 filled with everything that you wish for. Enjoy the break and recovery time and we'll see you on January 4th, 2016!

Team Triumph Triathlon Club's Hawaiian Holiday Party!

 

 

TEAM TRIUMPH HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY PARTY!

YEOWZAH!!! What a party!! The evening started with a HUGE surprise for Kevin and Cary and the Team Willis crew who just returned from Hawaii after completing the Ironman and Ultraman. When they arrived they were greeted at the door by Gina, a well loved Triumpher who moved to Victoria and flew back to Ottawa just for the party! We were then treated to blue Mai Tai cocktails mixed up by the Goldsmith crew from Hawaii.

Much to our surprise, The Ultraman Parade arrived! Pauline, Susan, Bryan and Julie dressed up as Team Willis with full wetsuits, biking, running and kayak gear on paraded around the house! After more delicious food, the Hawaiian games or should I say the competitions began! We had the best styled surfers, the Hawaiian relay race, hula hooping and the limbo! Thanks to Kevin for organizing the games.

The McInnes family took 1st place overall for the evening with Jan and Team Aimers-Couet coming a close 2nd and 3rd place. The games got everyone warmed up for some dancing so out came the Disco playlist and we were hopping!! We had a total of 45 Triumphers at the party. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined in to make the party a smashing success!

A special thank you to Martin, my partner and best friend, for keeping everyone's whistles wet and Gina for cleaning up after all of us crazy Triumphers!
