“Hi Doug,

Wanted to say thank you again for your Syracuse 70.3 training camp.  Not only did I gain valuable training experience on the course, your coaches and staff provided invaluable information that really helped on race day.

You provided me with the knowledge that helped me get through some rough sections during my half Ironman.  Look forward to attending more of your camps.

Thank you,

Don B., Newark, NJ”
