Click here for Saturday's practice and here for my blog and the podium spot.
Delaware City Duathlon
There is a new race in April in Delaware City.  It is a 5k run - 16 mile bike  - 5k run. It could be a great kick-start to anyone's multi-sport season. Here is the link for additional information.
Sara Santana
Some of you heard that Sara had a bike accident last weekend. She is recovering well from a head injury. This gives me a chance to get on my soap box about two things that fortunately Sara was wearing. The first is she had her helmet on that saved her from a much more serious or even fatal injury.  Secondly, she was wearing her Road ID bracelet. Sara was still unconscious when EMS arrived but with her ID on they were able to reach her husband. If you don't have an ID bracelet do yourself and your family a favor and click here to order yourself one. It will cost you less than $20 and five minutes of your time.
