4. NEW NEW NEW....FOXES ARE RUNNING ON WEDNESDAYS!!
Attention Tri Foxes.  Our Tuesday night bike rides have been successful for years.  It is our hope to offer this same kind of fun and support in a weekly run.  Starting Wednesday March 5th (and continuing every Wed. until fall) at 6:00pm, the Tri Foxes will be running from the park n ride on Ballard along the Apple Creek Trail.  This will be a run for all abilities, but it should be stressed that if you are new to running and feel uncomfortable running with a fast group, this will be a perfect opportunity to find people to run with.  We are hoping to support the inexperienced runner with runs of shorter duration and slower speeds.  We will not leave anyone behind!  We would like people to have fun with this, and yet have the opportunity to gain some tips from seasoned triathletes and runners.  Pass this news on to friends and family that are interested in running or learning to run.  It's not just open to triathletes.  We're gonna have a blast!  If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
