Club Championships
With close to a 300 point lead I think it is safe to say that we have Piranha's club championship wrapped up. After four years of second place finishes it's nice to be #1 out of around 200 clubs that were entered. They will award the championship at the Cape Henlopen Triathlon and Duathlon on October 13. Please make sure that if you go that you and your family stick around for a team photo. So far we have 27 signed up. You can register here.

VO2 Max Testing
Fellow Tri-Dawg Matt Hall from CardioKinetics has put together some testing opportunities for other Dawgs. I have attached the information and pricing. In an earlier e-mail I mentioned that I did the Health and Performance testing myself and the feedback that you get is amazing. If you are a serious or even casual competitor, I would highly advise getting something like this done for the sake of your own health.

Eagleman 70.3
This is a popular race with the Dawgs. Registration opens October 1 at 7:00 PM. Don't delay if you want to do it because it closes out real fast.

Moderate Exercise and Knee Arthritis
 A new study of 1,500 participants over the age of 45 revealed that the risk of middle-aged and older adults for developing arthritis in the knee is unaffected by 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week.  The study’s authors added, “This study shows that engaging in physical activity at these levels is not going to put you at a greater risk of knee osteoarthritis.  Furthermore, we found this held true no matter what a person’s race, sex, or body weight is.  There was absolutely no association between these factors and a person’s risk.”    Arthritis Care & Research, August 201
Getting It Right
Nice first person story about overcoming obstacles and completing their first 70.3.

From Zero to Ironman
Less than three years ago, Kendra Goffredo didn’t know how to swim, hadn’t ridden a bike in 15 years, and was coping with a running injury—not the most auspicious circumstances to tackle a triathlon, let alone an Ironman. Read here how she is consistantly on the podium in IM events.

World Record Swimmer Mallory Weggemann to Keynote Yes U Can USA’s Gift of Movement 
U.S. Paralympic swimmer Mallory Weggemann, who holds 34 American and 15 world records, will headline the second annual Gift of Movement Celebration on October 24 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at White Clay Creek Country Club. In 2008, complications from an epidural injection left Mallory paralyzed from the waist down. In spite of her disability, Mallory went on to become one of the most decorated American swimmers.

The evening will feature hors d’oeuvres, dinner, a silent auction and an address from Carla Markell, Delaware’s First Lady. The benefit is hosted by Yes U Can USA, an organization for people who are disabled or have limited mobility. The nonprofit identifies and overcomes barriers, then gets people with disabilities moving through exercise and activities.

“The local disabled community really had few options when it came to activities,” says Vickie George, co-founder of and active participant in Yes U Can USA. “We are changing that in a big way. With the help of more donors, partners and volunteers, we’ll put resources directly towards expanding our sports, fitness and outdoors programs, so more people can reap the physical and psychological benefits.”

More than 115,000 Delawareans have disabilities. Yes U Can USA offers individualized exercise, swimming, and wildlife programs, and does not charge its participants any fees. Making a gift to Yes U Can USA gives the gift of movement and accessibility to people.

Yes U Can USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that breaks the disability barrier. Located in Newark, DE, the organization seeks to increase inclusion, awareness and access to health, recreation and physical fitness opportunities for people with limited mobility and disabilities. 
Have a great week!
