-Save your space for the kickoff dinner for some socializing and bonding while NOT sweating.
-Take John Mercer-Club Prez, words to heart while evaluating your 2018 year.
-Go over the LVTC race calendar with family and/or those moderating your athletic accountability so it's both poand REALISTIC.

Prez Corner:

Thoughtful notes from a fearless LVTC leader.


On the last day of class, I always play ‘Celebration’ by Kool and the Gang. Students are usually pretty amused – but then also join in the celebration realizing that they have completed one more step towards earning their degree. In many cases, my class is the last class that students are taking and it is fun to celebrate with them reaching the academic finish line.

Have you taken the time to celebrate your achievements in 2018? Whether that was a personal record, finishing a race, or getting to the start line … it is so important to celebrate achievements.
Far too often, as athletes, we don’t take the time to look at our accomplishments. We are often too busy planning for the future. How do I squeeze more training time in my schedule? How to I add new training sessions? How do I cut 1-minute from my run time? We are programmed to shoot for higher goals then what we already achieved.

But it is so important to stop and look back at what has been accomplished – no matter how big or small those accomplishments are. I always try to remember to be thankful to reach the start line and to celebrate at the finish line. Yes … I always want to try to go faster or go longer … that’s a given. But it is so important to enjoy the journey – and that enjoyment of accomplishments makes us better triathletes.

Take the time to celebrate – come and join the Las Vegas Triathlon Club at our ‘Kickoff Dinner’ during which we will celebrate the 2018 season! Just like completing a class towards earning a degree, your season has many accomplishments that are worthy of celebrating.
