Tri for a Cure Update - May

There's less than two months to go until the Tri for a Cure and it's time for an update!  Let's all give a shout out to Deborah Maines and Tracy Landeryou, two of our triathletes who recently crossed the $10,000 fundraising mark. Wow! You ladies are amazing! Who will be next?

Speaking of fundraising... The UPS delivery guy has been visiting us a lot this month, dropping off cool Tri for a Cure items, including these fabulous reusable tote bags. You'll get your bag on Expo Day (July 16).

We took a quick look at the Triathlete list, and there are women from more than 30 different states and 3 countries participating this year!

How's Your Training Coming Along?

We hear from many of you on our Facebook page and Twitter feed that proper training is important for first-time participants. Don't forget to visit the Training Clinics page and review the athlete guides.
