HI! I am Carol Novak and let me start by saying that not only was I surprised but also incredibly honored to be nominated to run for the BTC Board. This is such an amazing club! I started running approximately 10 yrs ago as a way to get in shape and lose a few pounds. However, that was just the beginning! After struggling through a few 5k’s I progressed to 8K’s, 10k’s, half marathons and have completed a hand full of full marathons. After a few years of running, I started looking for a new challenge. Boy did I find it! After completing my first Sprint distance tri, I was hooked! I’ve competed in sprint and olympic distances as well as Muskoka Half Ironman. (I haven’t done a full IM ……yet!)
At first, I was little intimidated to join the club because everyone seemed so experienced and so awesome! It didn’t take long to find out that this is the most supportive and incredible group of human beings. At every workout, gathering or race you can always find someone with a wealth of swim/bike/run training knowledge they just can’t wait to share. If someone has a goal, this club will help you get to that starting line, cheering you on and meet you at the finish! I would be honored to serve on the board and to give back to the club that has given me so much support. BTC strong!It doesn’t matter the distance or how fast you go, as long as you just keep moving!
