Giving Thanks – Continuing the Race Campaign

GREENies – We’re almost a full 2 weeks into November.  Fall is in full here in Georgia.  Falling leaves, cold north air, the forecasted wintery mix all signs that is indeed November.  I like to view this month as a month of thanks.  Race season is winding down, and we can really begin to reflect on the year that has passed.  And in that reflection, we always can find thanks and gratitude for the people and experiences passed. Along these lines I want to bring attention to the Continuing the Race Capital Campaign that is currently underway at Dynamo Swimming Club.  It coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Club; 50 years marked by more peaks than valleys, but most of all marked and defined by a sense of community.  When I look at Dynamo and it’s different service areas – age group swimming, swim school, masters and multisport, – the underlying theme is the community each provides to its constituents.  Embedded in that community are the cornerstones of Dynamo: excellence, education, outreach, health and a mutual respect for all. As you are reflecting on the year that is winding down, I hope you look at your own place within the Dynamo community and when you do, you are proud of and grateful for the friends and teammates who compose our family.  Whether that leads to a gift to the Campaign lies within your own means and sense of need.  On behalf of the the Dynamo Multisport coaching staff and Dynamo […]

Happy 5th Birthday & Mahalo

Happy 5th Birthday, GREEN! Each year I come out of Kona week, exhausted from the wonderful roller-coaster ride that event is but more importantly rejuvenated for the final races of the season, new beginnings and the exciting prospects of a new year ahead. It’s only fitting that our birthday comes on the heels of Kona. After all, if you look into the DNA of our origins it comes from a passion that was ignited into action after my first trip there in 2006. Throw in some circumstances that now don’t seem as coincidental as they did then, our family has grown into something that I once dreamed it might be when the vision for Dynamo Multisport started percolating back then. Haley and I sat in the pro meeting prior to the race last Thursday, admittedly more like fans than as an athlete and a coach. Surreal? Considering that 4 years prior she, Betty and I were coming to the Island on our first visit as a team, it absolutely was. As Betty, Erin and John were making their way back to Kailua pier at the end of the age group swim on race day, Haley exited the water of the professional race as the leading athlete. My heart swelled with pride and raced with excitement just as it had when she led the female amateur race for the first time in 2009. I had these same emotions coursing through me a month earlier, as I watched the bravery of two brothers – Bent and Kyle Pease – take on a monumental day up in Wisconsin. As […]

Masters Swimming Update – Pool Renovations

GREENies – By now everybody has heard about the upcoming renovations to the Chamblee facility that will take place beginning the afternoon of Friday, July 26th and completing on Sunday, August 18th. We will be in the water again on August 19th. Looking at this week, there will be morning masters this Friday, 7/26 but no lunch option for that day. The updates are going to be excellent. They include re-surfacing of critical areas like each of the pools themselves and the locker rooms. There’s never a good time for these types of projects, but in the end a little inconvenience is going to create multiples of utility moving forward, and a short forward it really is. So what does this mean practically for those of you swimming Masters currently? As a dues-paying member of Masters Swimming for the month of August you will have two options from which to continue swimming during this time, at no additional charge: (1) Lesley Beach Club: Morning sessions 5’45am-7am, Monday – Friday, will be held at this 6-lane facility located very near Dynamo Chamblee. Maria will be coaching these workouts. Please plan on arriving 10 minutes EARLY to help with lane lines. (2) Concourse Athletic Club (CAC): CAC will have the below options available. Please note that the coach on deck will NOT be Maria, but a designated CAC coach. -AM (5’45-7): Monday-Friday -Lunch (12-1pm): Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday -PM: Monday/Wednesday (7’30-8’30pm) | Tuesday/Thursday (6’30-7’30pm) For CAC, you will identify yourself at the front as a Dynamo Masters swimmer and they will verify your name on their roster of current dues-paying members for August. If there are any changes to the timeline, we will […]

The Latest Addition to the DMS Staff

DynaNation: It’s with great pleasure that Maria, Shanks and I introduce the newest addition to the Dynamo Multisport coaching staff, Brent Pease. Brent has been in the Dynamo family since 2009, first as an athlete in our masters swim and cycling classes, then as a Coached Athlete where Maria and I have been working closely with him for the last three years. His passion for triathlon and coaching has been clearly evident in that time. Most recently, Brent has made the transition to a full-time industry professional, joining the All3Sports staff as their Community Growth & Outreach Manager. Growth in our staff comes with very high standards and a level of integrity that we take very seriously. Brent’s addition takes place within those standards. He is a full-time industry professional, but more importantly, he is a person of experience, character, respect and compassion. His addition allows us to seamlessly preserve our culture which continues to be the priority for how we evaluate strategic decisions. I am proud to say that we continue to have the best coaching staff in both Atlanta metro and the Southeast, and one which we I believe we can measure against any other, anywhere, any time. For more information about Brent, please visit his profile page here. Brent can be reached directly via email if you would like to wish him well. Thank you all for who you are and how you represent each other and the ‘We’ in Dynamo Multisport. Please welcome Brent Pease to the Dynamo Multisport family in this new capacity. GO GREEN! Matthew
