Club NEWSletter - June 2010

posted Aug 8, 2010, 7:33 AM by TeamSonic Secretary
Hi all Sonic ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the June, but the heat is yet to come?!

A quick recap for the action in May we supposed to have another highlight of the year at Pattaya Training Camp however we need to further postpone it due to the political downturn and the curfew impose on the evening before we took off. We can only postpone it until further arrangement.

30 May: South Bay Aquathon
South Bay Aquathon happened in the end of May, the rain cloud seemed to fear many of us off, eventually only countable number of us racing in the rain for that 4k run/500m swim and 4k run on the rolling terrain of South Bay Road. Somehow it's still the good training race and EXPERIENCE!

12 June: Sonic Boat Trip
After all, Kenneth's calling for the boat trip on coming Saturday 12 June as Sonic mid-year social event, more than 20 of us are going, let Kenneth know if you are joining!!

Happening Elsewhere
K-Swiss is kicking off the major marketing campaign that involve a road running training course on Tue and Fri at happy valley with the exceptionally cheap fee, and also becoming the title sponsour of our HK ITU Triathlon 2010!!! Our champion from Ironman China, Michal Bucek is one of the front man in "Team K-Swiss".

Ironman 70.3 Taiwan start accepting entry now, it will be the first official 70.3 Ironman by WTC in Taiwan, the race will be set at the southern end of Taiwan, Kenting, on 30 October, it is the famous tourist spot for the beautiful scene, national park and surf break. Good number of Sonic already register online or via Trisports, to deal with the challenge from the heat, the wind and the sun burn!

Another champion, William Lee, Kin Leung from Sonic, represent HK Life-Saving team to race the "All China Game" won gold medal in the event of Surf-Life-Saving rescue race. (I attached a paper cutting) Good Work! HK Life-Saving team also do training in Shek O on Sunday, just with their surf-resuce board.

Rest of the year we will be pretty filled by racesss, plan your training and racing, set yourself a main goal, and achieve the small goals that make up the main goal.

Quote of the month: when the going get tough, the tough get going.
