I had time to get one more newsletter out before heading to Kona. You can follow Marianne Moore (441) and Mike Welch (1765) at Ironman Hawaii World Championships on October 13 by going to and using their athlete tracker or installing the IronTrac app on your phone. Jocelyn Saunders had to pull out due to an injury.

Good luck to Diane Arnold who is doing the Chicago Marathon Sunday. You can go here to track her. Her bib number is 22254.

Triathlon Camp Info
I was wondering if you could forward this email out to the group, I think a few people may be interested.  I am helping run a pretty cool 3-day swim camp out of Stanford University this December.  Specifically the dates are the 16th - 18th (arrival on the 15th) or the 20th - 22nd (arrival on the 19th).  The camp is all inclusive and geared towards triathletes and masters swimmers.  All you need to pay for in addition to the fee is your transportation costs to get to Stanford.  It is going to be a truly unique experience, here are some features:
  • Get picked up at the air port and driven to your hotel by a member of the USA National Swim Team (In a mercedes Benz SL 500 if that matters to any car fanatics)
  • Coaching is done by Stanford's Men's Swimming staff and USA National Team members
  • Swim with the USA National Team members
  • All swimming will be recorded with a Strokeview underwater recording system
  • Get 1 on 1 video feed back from the coaches and take the DV:D with your swimming and their feedback home
  • Expert clinics on nutrition, technique, injury prevention etc.
  • Professional triathlete motivational speakers
  • Massages included by Michael Phelps's personal masseuse 

Like I said, everything is included with the camp fee, apart from your travel expense to get to the camp.  If you want more information on pricing or the camps, you can email  Feel free to forward this email if you think of someone that would be interested!  It will be an unforgettable experience for swimmers of all ages and skill levels.

Spinning at DSFC
In the past DSFC Tri-Dawgs were allowed to take the Saturday morning spin class if there were bikes available for members. Going forward the class will only be open to members or those paying guest fees. If you are a Tri-Dawg and a DSFC member or you want to pay the guest fee you are free to take the class.

Team Uniform Order
It's time to place another Tri-Dawg uniform order. Please email Diane Arnold separately ( with your size & style order. 

Women's Fizz Tank -- $40
Men's RS shirt         -- $50 
Men's and 
women's RS short    -- $50. 
Trisuits                   -- $100.  

A couple of women have ordered the RS style top instead of the Fizz Tank, and that is certainly an option ($50). Just remember that there is no inner bra in the women's RS tops. 

Here again is the sizing chartFor sizing trisuits, use the RS top size as your guideline.

FAQ's (hopefully) answered:

Q. I didn't get a chance to try on the fit kit. Is it still around?
A. Sorry, no. I had to send it back. However, we learned that if you are on the edge in a size, you should order a size down for the Fizz tanks.  If you are unsure,ask a team mate to try theirs on. You really do want a tight fit.The Fizz should fit like a swimsuit. Hopefully the sizing chart will help you decide, too.  
Q. I am one size on top & another on bottom, so what's my tri suit size? 
A. Our Sugoi rep says, "For sizing the Tri suits, I recommend using the Tri tops as the ‘fit guide’ for those who are different size from top to bottom, go for the Top size over the bottom." 
Q. Is there a shorts length or padding choice? 
A. No. Unlike the Canari shorts, there is only one pad style, called the Trilite chamois, and one inseam size of 6". 
Q. Who do I pay? 
A. Make checks out to Carrie McGoldrick and send to: 2443 Linden Dr, Havertown, PA 19083-1651 
Q. When is the deadline? 
A. October 15 
Q. Can we order any other custom items? 
A. Not this time! This is considered a "reorder" of the first order placed this year. We can try to order something new with the new order in January, if we can get 24 people on board to meet the minimum!

If you have any other questions, please ask! Odds are, someone else has the same question, and our rep at Sugoi is very good at getting me quick responses.
