Hi all, here is an email from the TCOB if any of you are looking for a training group, I know several LOSTies already train with them (and I have too)… and they are a good bunch… (you can find their link on our “Links” tab too…

Hello Triathletes,

For some of you that live in the Burlington area, you may be interested in joining the Triathlon Club of Burlington (TCOB). The memberhship of $80 includes your OAT membership and access to TCOB training and events. All of the scheduled training is oriented around getting ready for whatever races you are doing. There is a group ride Monday night, brick workout Tuesday, swim Wednesday and track workout Thursday. The members of the club are at all different levels so you will have no problem finding people with the same objectives to train with.

Have a look at our website www.triburlington.ca for more information on training schedules and the club. Contact Jackie Smalec at jackiesmalec@jsmalecconsulting.com if you are interested in joining us.

I founded LOST Swimming because I like open water swimming and would like to see it grow and thrive in Lake Ontario. I started as a competitive swimmer as a kid and ended up getting as far as a silver medal at Nationals and going to the Olympic Trials in 1988. But I retired after that, I was sick of swimming. So I got into running marathons and have run over 35 to date, as well as a few ultra marathons, including the Marathon des Sables (7 day, ultra across the Sahara Desert). I also kind of fell into triathlons and have done a handful of Ironman tri's too. This gradually got me back in the water and in 2006 I took the plunge and attempted swimming the English Channel. I didn't quite make it across, but the circle was now complete and after 17 years I was a swimmer again! Although I still do plenty of pool swimming, I now much prefer open water swimming and like to say that open water swimming is to pool swimming, what trail running is to treadmill running! As a result I hope to encourage more people to join me for a dip in Lake Ontario as often as we can!
