Masters Swimming
We have come up with a six practices per week schedule that will run  10 week sessions at a cost of $125 for member of DSFC and $175 for non-members. A flyer is attached with details. The Masters program is open to people of all abilities.

DSFC Resolution Classic 5K
The Tri-Dawgs will be hosting the 4th annual race January 1, 2013 at 1:00 PM.  Please encourage your family and friends to join us for a great time with loads of amenities. You can sign up here on Piranha's website. The race will benefit the Tri-Dawgs and the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation which is affiliated with the Boys and Girls Club. A flyer is attached. Please feel free to share the flyer with any other organizations, running clubs, etc.

Silent Auction
In conjunction with the 5K we will be having a silent auction. We are approaching our sponsors for donations but I would also like to reach out to the Tri-Dawgs as well. If anyone works at or has an affiliation with someone that would be willing to donate something for the auction, please contact me. Our goal is to have 10-12 items. Don't forget this benefits the Tri-Dawgs and the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation. 

Philly Half and Full
There might be a record number of Dawgs doing either race in two weeks. If you are doing the race or just going up to cheer on others, send me an e-mail and if we have enough interest maybe we can do a little tailgating if the weather cooperates.

Uniform Update
Last week I emailed everyone who has given me an order for a team uniform this fall to see about postponing our Sugoi order.  Our new rep at Sugoi has agreed to accept an order from us at the end of the year at these lower-quantity levels.  While we do have enough orders to get shorts & men's tops, we fell short in women's tops & trisuits. I was concerned that ordering only shorts & men's tops now would mean that in January we wouldn't be able to meet the higher minimums and then we'd really be scr*w*d!  

So, this works out well. I will add any orders you send me between now and the end of December to the spreadsheet and I will let you know when to send Carrie a check. 

As a side note, if there is another item you would like to see us get (tri-dawg tights? bike jersey?) please start a discussion on FB or in the forum and we can see where it goes. For any NEW items, we would need to meet the higher minimum, so it might require some recruitment. : )
Thanks very much!

Congratulations to Katie and Brendon Bielat on the birth of Claire Madeline who arrived the same day as Sandy!

Half Marathon Training
Now is the time to start sketching out your racing calendar for 2013. Think about adding a half marathon. There are more and more of these races available including Caesar Rodney in March. Click here for tips on training for one.

Pre-Race Food Strategy
Many of us will be doing the Philly marathon or half marathon. Here is a good article on the best race morning meal.

Ironman Hawaii on TV
It was to air last Saturday but got zipped by the hurricane coverage. They did air it this past Wednesday and I heard a rumor that it was to air again on NBCSports channel (848) Tuesday 8-10 PM.

Have a great week.
