New Jersey Devilman
Our first team race is only 5 weeks away. We already have 30 signed up for the race! There is a sprint and a half-lite race so something for everyone. We definitely will be tailgating and more information on that will come soon. Click here to get signed up for a great time with the Dawgs.

Summer Lifeguards Needed
Got a friend or relative looking for a summer job? Aquatic Management Systems is hiring lifeguards for the summer. Apply online at If certification or recertification is needed you can sign up online for a Red Cross certified course.

Bike Fitting
I got a great bike fitting at The Bike Boutique at 1606 Delaware Avenue in Wilmington. They use the Retul computerized system that takes the guess work out of a fitting. Randy, the owner of TBB, and John, the mechanic, were very knowledgeable and just nice guys to work with. The whole process took about 3 hours. They charge $250 for a fitting but Tri-Dawgs get 20% off of that since TBB is one of our club sponsors. Definitely a good bargain which  I highly recommend it.

Group Workouts
Running workouts are, well, off and running at McKean High School track every Monday. Click here for a map. Former UD Coach Fischer and Josh Loren, who ran for Penn State and is on New Balance's running team will be heading these up. We will run these starting at 6:00 PM or whenever you can make it and going to around 7:00 PM or later depending on daylight.

Open water swims at Lums Pond are scheduled to start on May 1 on Wednesdays 6:00-7:00 PM. We will most likely be in Area 1 again. Click here for a map. More details will follow. Vince Lafashia will be heading this up.

Group bike rides will be Tuesdays starting April 9  around 6:00 PM. Length will depend on how much daylight we have. There will be a variety of distances and speed. We will be starting at Jennersville YMCA and go through the back roads of Amish country. We figure it's much safer and scenic than riding in Delaware. Marianne Moore and Dave Myers will be heading this up. Click here for a map to the Y. 

All of our group workouts are for Tri-Dawg members only. 

Have a great week!
