I'm saddened to be writing one of my last TWTs for the year! Between Memphis, Thanksgiving Dinner, Nationals, Sunday Morning Brunch, 5am VQ, White Elephant, Krispy Kreme 5K, Spin, and all of the other events this year, it's been a pretty memorable season!
Below you will find a recap of the Half Iron Man that 5 of our teammates raced today, pictures from Memorial Day Weekend (more to come), details about summer races, and more general info! I will be handing over this job to Jason for the summer as I will be out of the country without Internet (So if TWT goes down hill… You know who to blame! Hehe).
Also, big thank you to Rae and Nour for planning the Smoothie fundraiser and everyone else who helped work! It was a great success!!
Good luck on finals and have a great summer!!! Best of luck racing and training!
***Over the summer, workouts will still be sent and posted weekly but TWT we be less frequent because we don't have as much going on during the summer***
