WELCOME and THANKS to our new sponsors!

Welcome to Adam Leavitt and Matt Bacon from Hogan Taylor Disciplined Investments — talented Certified Financial Planners. They are new to TAT and come from athletic backgrounds.  (a sincere editor’s note: my husband and I are benefiting from his advise as we face retirement and financing college for our kids. He is a great help!)

We are happy to have Dr. Chuck Zoellner (chiropractor), and his brother Dr. Robert Zoellner (optometrist) helping the club and helping keep us healthy. Our vision and our physical well-being have no price.

TAT is so lucky to have the ongoing support of Tulsa Runner and Performance Care Clinic. Trani helps in countless small and large ways. Dr. Brian Flournoy served as president of TAT for a couple years and his A.R.T. chiropractic skills keep many of us SBRing comfortably and soundly.

Many of you know TATer Janet Wilson as “Coach-Janet”. She is a mainstay of our tri camp programs. She is a USAT-certified triathlon coach, focusing mostly on swim skills development in new and intermediate level triathletes. Also, as club treasurer she spends many hours a week on keeping our club running smoothly and responsibly.

Look for the logos on the website; on our banners; and on our kits. We truly can not have the depth of options that TAT has without sponsors help. Consider them for your future needs.

Spring Fever : first event in TAT’s ’13 race line-up

Spring Fever? Yes, but with a hefty dose of left-over winter chill.  Air temp was in the low 40′s as the first swimmers hit T1.

Once again, the “Claremore World Championship Triathlon” was contested at the Rec Center there, with some course modifications to accommodate a gun show going on next door in the convention center.  Gun Show and Triathlon used in the same paragraph… that’s Oklahoma!

Highlights:

  • Gobbling up some decadent egg sandwiches at the finish line.
  • Clueless car driver cut into the coned off lane for the bicyclists and t-boned a Tri Tulsa Runner member, who THANKFULLY, was okay!
  • weighing the benefits of staying warm on the bike versus slow T1 times to wiggle into extra bike clothes. I stayed warm on the bike; let’s leave it at that.
  • Some of the volunteers came from the HOW Foundation (I think?) and they did great!  Happy they helped so enthusiastically.
  • Deciding that Sprint Tri’s hurt no matter how much or how little you train, and they are a great starting (or, in my case, restarting) point for the multisport lifestyle.

Keith Kelley battled back from a long-standing Achilles tendon injury to give the race a Thumbs Up. Did you know the thumb bone is connected to the Achilles tendon? For Keith it seems to be! ;-)
