Triwomen Kick Off the Season


Several of my swim buddies and I belong to a group called Triwomen, a group of ladies who volunteer their time and put together a fabulous training season for female triathletes.  Every January they bring together a group of girls and women (14 – 70’s) who want to complete sprint triathlons. Now for those of you who have completed an  Ironman or two a sprint Triathlon may seem like nothing for me the 62-year-old anti-athlete it’s a big deal.

This group has all types of free activities for members of the group (no membership fees) and they pretty much start in January with the goal of having members ready for  August (Jersey Girl) and  September (Iron Girl) events. They have swim clinics, riding clinics and running clinics. Any money donated to the group or realized from the sale of Triwomen gear is donated to Breast Cancer research. It’s a win win situation! They have taken many women from beginner to triathlete in less than a year and have lots of finishers to show for it. So I’m in.

Must overcome fear of  the bike! Stay tuned.

Sometimes You Just Need to Scream


My last Tuesday night Zumba class until September. I’m going to miss it. Tonight when we got to the song where everyone runs from one end of the room to the other and screams I wondered if the scream meant anything to anyone else.  I look forward to it every week. A chance to let out what ever is driving you crazy. Everybody should have a scream time. Maybe when you are alone in the house. Playing with the kids or grand kids in the park. Your favorite exercise class. Try it you might feel better. Oh! Just one thing, the office is probably not the place.
