We are almost done with our summer races and as of right now we are in a great position to place very well in our conference! Our last two summer races are Tri the Illini Sprint in Champaign, IL on September 21st and Boilerman in West Lafayette, IN on September 28th. (More details to come in the next few weeks!)
If you are interested in racing at Nationals next year (April 2015), you must do at least 1 Olympic or sprint distance MECTC summer race! Nationals is an AMAZING experience and a great way to connect with the team! I HIGHLY encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity!

2. Summer Activities
If you are not yet on the summer listserv and still would like to be, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to the listserv. We organize workouts, dinners, fun times on there, so if you are cool and you are around, you should be on it!
We continuously post in the FB group as well! If you are home or here, and you did something fun, workout related or not, we want to hear about it! No matter if it is a #twtcontest contestant or not, I know that at least I want to know what is going on in your life, so post and tell us
I hope workouts are going well for everyone! If you have any questions regarding the workouts or summer logistics feel free to contact someone on exec!
If anyone is not in a biking group on groupme and would like to be added for group rides, feel free to shoot me an email and I can add you! Hope everyone is getting excited for even more races to come!
2. Need new Equipment?
Are you looking to buy a bike, new running shoes, or a new aero helmet? Are you an idiot like me who forgot his running shoes at Rockford and had to run Wolverine in shoes with regular laces? Don't be like me and email someone on Exec to help you out! We all have tons of experience buying things and can help you too!
As you come back to Evanston, don't forget about Bar Louie on Tuesday! Watch the Facebook Page or the summer listserv to see when most people are going for dollar beers. Also, remember that you do NOT need to be 21 to come, it is a normal restaurant!
2. Hanging out
If you are around this summer, for the whole time or even just a few days, come hang out with us! After work and working out, most of us usually have some time left in the day and have nothing to do! Don't let us be lonely, email the summer listserv or post on the Facebook group to see who else is free!
