Well, I attended the 2010 Year End Party for LA Tri Club and I was nominated for one of the membership awards. Newbie of the Year is pretty self explanatory. Some one new to triathlon who had an exceptional year. I was up against 4 other worthy nominees. Two of whom finished an Ironman in their first year. After all the votes were in, I came out on top…lol…I actually have no idea who votes on this stuff. I do know I was nominated by my good friend Lizzie Brenkus, and for that I thank her.
I must say it was a pretty big deal. They only had a few membership awards and they made quit the production out of each one. I was very thankful and humbled by the experience. I’m really glad I finally pulled the trigger on joining a club and also really glad I chose LA Tri Club. Tons of resources and such a great social aspect to the club. I hope I make them very proud next year!
