I am pleased to announce that Full Throttle Endurance Racing coach Scott Berlinger will be hosting the first annual Sherman Triathlon on July 23, 2011! Located just 75 miles from NYC, the .5 mile swim, 12.5 mile bike, and 4 mile swim sprint race through the rolling hills of Sherman, Connecticut is sure to be a challenge for both newcomers and veterans.
Scott, a USA Triathlon Level 2 coach and a long-time Elite Level trainer at the Sports Center, has led the Full Throttle Endurance Racing team to the USA Triathlon National Team Victory the past three years and has also led the team to NYC Triathlon wins 3 years in a row ('08, '09 and '10). Berlinger, besides being a nationally acclaimed coach, also has many personal accomplishments including the Lake Placid Ironman, more than 14 first or second place division finishes in various triathlons including the NYC Tri, US Nationals, Mighty Montauk and West Point Triathlons and was named a top five trainer in America by Men’s Journal magazine.

Congratulations to the Masters Swim Team on a number of great swims over the past few weeks! Here is a quick recap of all the great racing:
The 1.2K Liberty Island Swim took place at the end of June and a lot of our swimmers had a great showing. Lance Ogren finished in just over 27 minutes and Ellen Weinberg came in under 30 minutes. Great job to both of you! Full results can be found at http://www.nycswim.org/Event/Event.aspx?event_id=2004&from=results
