YES – Spring is coming…let’s welcome its return.
I know spring is not officially here until March 20th but how awesome was it this weekend to actually see the sun for more than 15 minutes and be able to get outside without your Carhart’s on (I have a pair of camo ones). More importantly, to look at the 10 day forecast and not see another “Winter Storm” brewing…YES Spring IS coming. It’s funny how quickly we think 39 degrees is sooo warm. My boys were riding their half pipe (which was still surrounding by snow on the ground) on Monday with no shirts on (the above photo is from last summer). I too was getting a little over heated doing my daily errands with my “heavy” sweater on…complaining to my wife at my wardrobe selection for the day. Though I dread winters like everyone else and at times wish I lived elsewhere during our winters, Spring is something that year after year is like a promise from God that there are good things to come. Regardless of how down the winter has you, Spring and what Spring brings to all of us is something we get to enjoy every season. Ecclesiastes 3:1 reads “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.” What a great verse for a triathlete living in the Mideast.
HFP Racing welcomes Deb Battaglia and Chuck Kreger to our multisport family
We are proud to announce that the husband and wife team of Deb Battaglia and Chuck Kreger have joined as partners of HFP Racing. Deb and Chuck have a great HFP story that not only brought them together as husband and wife but now as partners of HFP Racing as we enter our 26th season. Deb is from Salt Lake City, Utah via Pennsylvania and Chuck from Toledo, Ohio with both being avid endurance junkies. So where do ALL hardcore endurance junkies go every May? The American Triple-T of course…and in 2012, with both racing in the solo division, Deb and Chuck found more than their normal fill of endorphins during race weekend…they found each other. At the time Deb was a full-time ER doctor and Chuck a train engineer for Norfolk Southern for 21 years. After retiring from Norfolk Southern and moving to Utah, Chuck and Deb were married. Shortly after both decided to pursue changes in their careers so they could spend more time with each other and spend more time enjoying the multisport lifestyle. After a couple seasons of volunteering at races across the country to get a behind the scenes look at the race management industry, Deb and Chuck decided that HFP Racing was a perfect match for not only their personalities but most importantly their family values. Deb will be focused in the area of customer service and registration (while still continuing her career as an ER doctor on a part-time basis), Chuck will be focused on event services and working with the new timing technology. Additionally, both Deb and Chuck will provide coaching services at our camps including the upcoming Helen, Georgia camp on April 6-12. We feel truly blessed to have attracted such a dynamic couple and look forward to an exciting future with Deb and Chuck as part of the HFP family.
