|PHOTO OF THE MONTH|
|Like father, like son: David Javaheri shows off the style that made him a member of the 2002 All Speedo Team and is starting the training early for his new son Aaron. This size 2 blue speedo might not be as crazy as his father's, but for his first speedo, it's not a bad start!|
Dunkin' Donuts will again be financially supporting the BTT for the 2003 season. For the third year in a row, DD will be doubling their commitment, and we are excited to be working together with them for next season!
|In 2002, BTT members raced for almost 19,000 miles. That's about 3/4 around the entire globe!|
|Martin Paier got engaged, Terry Reagan ran another 50k (go figure), Jeff Aronis shaved his beard, Rob Sczupak discovered a new wardrobe, Adam Osekoski bought a Computrainer and Gregg Tucci was seen at the team social for the first time...|

Welcome New Members
We are very excited to welcome the new members of the Boston Triathlon Team as we embark on a new year of training, racing and fun. This new group includes athletes whose experience ranges from absolute "newbie" to Ironman veterans. In the new year, we will be organizing a few special events to get you started in meeting other new members as well as current members. We hope that you will enjoy all the benefits of being a team member and will contribute to BTT to make it a better experience for everyone!
Once again, Boston Triathlon Team is a registered team with USA Triathlon - the governing body for triathlon. Please make sure that you register with USAT for the 2003 season by January 31, 2003. By mentioning that you are a BTT member, you will receive a discount of $3 off the yearly membership. You will also receive a discount at most races in New England as well as nationally for being a USAT member.

Once it gets cold enough outside and there is actually snow on the ground, it's time for cross-country skiing! Go online to check out the links to all the major parks and XC ski trails around the area. Talks are also in the works to get a "Winter Training Day" together that would include running, xc skiing, snow hiking and more - stay tuned...

Team Pictures Online
One of the great things that BTT members enjoy about our team website is the "Team Photos" section. In the past, we've compiled pictures from members, resized them and posted them online. What we'd like to try for the upcoming season is to get members who take pictures to set up "photo sites" online. This can easily be done at numerous websites, popular options being Shutterfly.com and the Kodak Picture Center. In this manner, we can still have all team members contribute photos for viewing, but they can be posted much quicker (plus it will free up much-needed resources on the team website). We will gladly link any team members' photo website to the "Team Photos" page on the BTT website at their request. We will also post other pictures that are not uploaded to these sites, but all links will still be in the same place on the "Team Photos" page.

2002 Banquet Award Winners
The 2002 Team Banquet was another great success with tons of help from so many team members who worked hard on getting things together and making the "program" fun for all - a big "thank you" goes out from all of us! Many members had also been asking to find out more about the award winners and their accomplishments of the year to learn more about these members. Posted on the team website is a brief listing of each winner's race accomplishments, plus some added words from admiring fans!
