Member Spotlight – Meghan F.

February's New England Tri Fit Member Profile spotlight is on Meghan F.  Meghan was a competitive swimmer in high school and a champion tobogganer as a kid, so she had the advantage of speed on water and land when she entered the world of triathlon. It was no surprise, then, that in her very first Olympic distance race she finished second in her age group.  When she's not staying in shape by training and running after her two boys, she's putting in miles as a buyer for TJMaxx and Marshalls. Now ...

Member Profile – Meghan D-M

August's New England Tri Fit Member Profile spotlight is on Meghan D-M.  Meghan is proof that you don't have to come from an athletic background to be a triathlete. You just have to love the sport, train regardless of your speed, and have fun with it. Meghan has had so much fun doing it these last few years that she and her training partner became besties and she even raced in a relay while she was pregnant.      What is your Athletic Background? I honestly don’t have much...

Member Profile – Roy C.

June's New England Tri Fit Member Profile spotlight is on Roy C.  Roy is probably best known as "the bike guy", because that's exactly what he is to most of us. Not only is he one of our top sponsors, he's the one we take our babies to for tune-ups and fittings, builds brand new ones from scratch, answers all of our burning bike questions, trains with us, makes last minute tweaks on race morning, rescues us on the course, and, if you're really, really lucky, cooks for us.   What...

Member Profile – Justin L

May's New England Tri Fit Member Profile spotlight is on Justin L. If you don't already know who he is, you must be new to the club. He's our co-chair, membership director, and frequent ride leader. He also teaches spin and fitness classes at the Y and NRG Lab, helping us to become and stay strong for our endurance endeavors. Although he's taken a couple of years off of  racing triathlons, he's been filling that time with obstacle course training (himself and others) and racing. When he's not pu...

Member Profile – Jill M.

March's New England Tri Fit Member Profile spotlight is on Jill M; This is Jill’s second year with New England Tri Fit, but she’s certainly not new to endurance sports or triathlons. She’s one of our club members who swims at Ashland once the weather warms up, and swam there a lot last year in training for her first half Ironman (Atlantic City). This year she’s taking on the inaugural S.O.S. Cape Cod challenge, so we expect to see her doing some octect bricks (riding/running/swimming/running/swi...

Member Profile – Dawn

February's New England Tri Fit Member Profile spotlight is on Dawn. Dawn is one of our long-standing members. She's been a runner since she was two years old and can often be found doing it day or night, fair weather or foul, with her dad and/or a few running buddies. She represents the club well while racing in one of the several kits she owns, but she's also been known to race in a costume. If you couldn't tell already by that happy glow she's been wearing, she found the time between all that ...

Member Profile – Andrea

It's only fitting that our renewal of the monthly member profiles begins with Andrea. Andrea is one of New England Tri Fit's Founding Members, and before that held a leadership role in the club when it was affiliated with the Hockomock Y. Andrea is one of those people who always has a welcoming smile on her face and encouraging words on her lips, and its fun to learn a little more about her through January's Member Spotlight. What is your Athletic Background? I didn't play any sports in high ...
