>”I’ve got an opportunity for you to get in on the ground floor of something that’s going to be BIG!”
That sounds like some sketchy, used-car salesman sthick or something, right? In reality – or at least in this case – that’s not true. I’m getting involved in something brand new – that I (and my compatriots) think could be huge. No, it’s not buying and selling pristine swampland near Miami. Nor is it a new business venture.
We’re starting a new triathlon club!
You see, Jacksonville is a pretty large city – over a million people, and spread out in a geographic area larger than any other city in America – but when it comes to triathlon clubs, right now, it’s a one-horse town. Don’t get me wrong – the existing club (Hammerhead Triathlon) is a great club, and they host two of the best multisport events in town (the Hammerhead Ocean Marathon and the Hammerhead Olympic Triathlon). That said – there’s always room for a little competition. A Pepsi to a Coke. An Avia to a Saucony. A Kestrel to a Quintina Roo.
And so, an alternative is about to be born. The Julington Creek Tri Club.
So…if you live in Jacksonville (or the surrounding area) and you’re looking for a new tri club to call home, look no further! (and if you need more information, please click on the “Contact Me” link above and drop me a note).
If you don’t live in Jacksonville – wish us luck! (and if you have ideas about what makes a tri club great, please click on the “Contact Me” link above and drop me a note — or just leave a comment here!)
