Club NEWSletter - March

posted Mar 5, 2010, 7:42 PM by TeamSonic Secretary
Dear all Sonic ladies and gentlemen,

Here we go!

Feburary happening
Feburary was the cold, wet, rain, dark morning....the freezing cold weather keep most of us stay in the warm bed!! Duathlon 2 right after the Chinese New Year was surpriseingly quiet, M35-39 group only about 20 people. We put the Sonic Time Trial with this race, 27 members showed up and we have Dr. Chris Tong, Sebastien Stofffel and Kent Wong leading the Sonic Time Trial ranking for this year. Sebastien kindly produced the result and I will post it shortly.

HK Marathon the week after was another big event in HK, it's for us to share the joy of running with friends and families, it was very warm and humid on the race day, hope you guys happy with your run. Some of us also went to Tokyo for marathon in the same morning, it was 8C degree with rain but the atmosphere should enough to compensate.

March coming up!
Okay! Goodbye to the dark and cold and welcome to the warmer weather, March would be the month for Ironman 70.3 starting up in China or Singapore, some of us training for these should be on the peak mode or tempering....others race yet to come should be still on early season mode or partying like our March birthday boys or girls like Eric, Fanny and Gigi....!?!?
Anyway, everything is starting up again and some of the plan will become solid.
