Swim, Bike, Run & Smile


Remember you are triathletes and in the end you race alone. So, keep running, riding, and swimming. Just do it alone or with those that you already share spit with.

Sponsors: I would like to take a moment to remind our members that in this difficult time. We need to be sure to support our sponsors whenever we can. They have always been there for us and now it is time we support them. I know that the following is disheartening news. However, this is a time to dig deep and train as you would race. Use this time to reach out to your fellow teammates and encourage them to get out there. Please post any of your workouts or ideas for virtual events on Facebook.
