Welcome to 2017, it's a prime year! No, literally, 2017 is a prime number. What this means is 2017 is only divisible by 2017 and 1. 2017 is the year. You are the 1. 1 is all it takes to make a triathlete, but add up a bunch of triathletes and you have a triathlon club.
That's what we're about this year, coming together as a club to be greater than 1. Together we push to be greater than just ourselves. Together we hold each other accountable. Together we find the incentive to push hard and catch our friend…or not get caught! Together we find more reasons to keep going, try harder, and bring out the best in each other.
We're gearing up for a prime year full of activities and opportunities. This includes racing AND supporting, especially at our home state Ironman races like Ironman Galveston 70.3 and Ironman Texas. This includes introducing this sport we love to new people and ushering them along to achieve their goals and make a few friends along the way. This includes training, not only on our streets, highways, trails and open water, but in our local establishments that offer cross training and recovery opportunities. And we're going to take the time to give back through works of charity and goodwill too. So ask yourself, how are you going to factor into 2017? Be more than 1, be the Waco Triathlon Club!
