We are two weeks into a large block of training, and I totally understand if many of us are tired right now. Mentally and emotionally. I get it. We are in the thick of a tough stretch right now, but the end is near and some fun goals are before us. Stay strong this week, mentally and emotionally, because if you can follow through this week the pay off is great.
There a lot of different events coming up so please take note:
This weekend there are races in Phoenix on Saturday and Sunday. I would like to encourage some of the kids to go up on Saturday. I want to encourage only the kids that need race starts to move up in categories. So the CAT5 boys that need starts to move up to the 4’s. Such as Dillon, Kisiel, Ethan, Zaid, Patrick, Riccatello, Samuel Zukowsky, Rogan, jack. Here is information for the race:
