Newsletter July 8, 2012

Thanks to Kathy for running 2 out of the last three practices. I will be at practice this coming Saturday and then off to Lake Placid IM the following Saturday.

Michael Ramone Rundraiser
Michael is the owner of  Delaware Swim and Fitness, our primary team sponsor. He will be running for re-election as representative of the 21st District for the Delaware General Assembly. He is again hosting his annual crab feast at the Pike Creek club. Many Tri-Dawgs have turned out for this in the past and had an enjoyable time. Please join Marianne and me on July 15th. Details are in the attachment.

IM Arizona
IM Arizona Volunteer sign ups opened up on 7/1. Great way to secure a spot for the 2013 race. Dave Meyers is already signed up and would be interested in knowing if any other  Dawgs are going to volunteer.

Make-A-Wish Triathlon

Diamond in the Rough Results
The rough part was clearly the hot weather with temps reaching 100 degrees and water temps of over 87 degrees. We scored an incredible 137 points and picked up 104 points on first place Team Brick which means we are now only 137 points behind. We had 23 make the podium! Thanks to the 34 Tri-Dawgs that came out to put on an amazing performance not to mention a great time. It is interesting to note that no other team cheers on their own team mates like the Dawgs do.

What Next?
Our next team races are North East which has a sprint and international distance on 8/12 and Lums Pond on 8/19 which offers a sprint tri and du. There is no doubt if we get the same kind of turnout for these races we could be sitting in first place by the end of August. If you can't make these check out Julie's Race Friday and the Dragonfly the week after. If you haven't been to one of our team races your missing the amazing team comeraderie that the Tri-Dawgs have. Come out experience the excitement!
