Run this weekend

Hi everyone!
This Saturday I am planning to head down to Chatfield for Rudolph's Revenge. There is both a 5K and a 10k run. It would be great if people want to car pool. E mail me or call/text (303-941-5317) if you are interested. These weekend runs have been very lonely so I am really hoping that we can rally before the end of the year!!!!!
Also FAC is running a 'Stocking Stuffer Special.' they have 5 guest passes for $25.00
A very good value indeed. If you are interested let me know and I will get the details.

This weekend's practice

Hi everyone!
This weekend the workout is going to be the Turkey Trot 10K in Longmont. It starts at 9:00 so I think we should plan to leave here by 7:30 so that there is time to park etc. It is not clear from the web site whether there will be race day registration so if you want to o it might be best to pre-register.
Please let me know if you plan to go. We can also arrange car pooling.
I was thinking it would be fun for everyone to finish together...
My e mail is: to rsvp
I hope to see lots of people come out for the fun!

Team run October 25th

Hi fall Tri Babes!
I want to give you the low down on group training this fall. I will be leading informal practices (mostly runs but hopefully we can also sneak in some rides) on weekends this fall. For the most part these practices will be on Saturdays with the exception of the next 2 weeks. This Sunday's practice is a group run on Sunday October 25th at 7:45 am. I know it is early, but it will not always be this way. Since it may be muddy/dark/cold that morning, lets meet in front of Flatirons Athletic Club and run from there, that way we have the option of staying on roads or going on trails.
If you have any favorite rides or runs, let me know and we can work them in.
I hope to see you there! -Missy Simpson

THIS JUST IN: e weather is supposed to be pretty terrabile tomorrow morning. Let's still meet at FAC at 7:45 but keep a swim as an option. If it is not precipitating then we will try to soldier through a run so dress warmly.

Coach Andie is selling her Garmin Cycling Computer. I used it for about 2 years so I'm asking half price $150, it retailed for $349.999. Here's the Garmin link about the features etc. I upgraded to the CycleOps Power Tap last year and don't need two bike computers. So let me know if you're interested in training with cadence, distance, GPS, heart rate etc.

Registration forms collected before March 17 will be entered in via a lottery process beginning at 5:30am on March 17. Many of you have asked – what is the best way to register? Send it in early, or take my chances? Honestly, I do not know. I can tell you this, last year, we were able to input all of the registration forms we received on the first day of registration by 9:00am. The event filled in 4 days last year. So, I would recommend either sending your form in early, or register online! I guess we will just have to see what the interest is this year! Of course, no guarantees just register early! E-Connect Information!You may register on-line through our e-connect website! On-line registration will begin on Tuesday, March 17th at 8:00am. This will be only be available for individuals registering - teams will still have to register via the form and either mail in, drop off, fax in, or phone in. There are a few things you must do before you can register on-line unless you already have been using our e-connect system. You must call or stop by either recreation center (303-460-6900 or 303-464-5500) to update and check your "Family Account" information and obtain your family pin and barcode. You may do this at any time! We will need all your information - names, phone, email, address, birth date. Once you have completed that - registration is easy! Go to our website: there will be a link to E-Connect! Enter the course number for Mini Haha - #30568! Then follow the directions! You will need to enter your swim time and t-shirt size - so be prepared for that! Clinics and Training - more info to follow - but check them out on the website!!!
