Polar Bear
For the second year in a row, Nic Scibelli made his way to South Boston for the annual L Street Brownies New Year's Day Swim. With water temps at 37 degrees, you can bet that he was only in for a few seconds!


We are pleased to announce that Boston Bodyworker has joined BTT as a Team Supporter for the 2004 season. Helping members work out those kinks, aches, and pains, their therapists will surely assist us in recovering from long training sessions. Centrally located in downtown Boston, BBW will provide members with a significant discount and will attend team events. For more information contact Drew Freedman at 617-778-7344 or Steve Upson at

Even though it's early in the season, BTT'ers have raced for 261 miles already!

Sarah Keller finished 3rd in the Craftsbury XC Marathon, Austin Whitman swam more than Sean Luitjens in the One Hour Swim and we finally have a picture of Carol Hall for the team directory!

  • Training Weekend (May)

  • Volunteers Needed
    We need for 12 to 15 volunteers for the Hyannis Marathon / Half Marathon on February 29, 2004.  BTT has committed to help support the race director of BA Events and will need volunteers willing to commit about 6 hours on race day.  Please contact Evan Israelson for logistics, directions, etc.  Also, anybody wishing to run the race can contact Evan about free entries to any distance of the race.  BA Events puts the BTT logo on their race shirts and helps increase our exposure in return for us helping at their events.  In addition, save the date for the Ras nah Eireann on March 14, 2004, when we will need about another 12 to 15 volunteers to work the finish line.
