The week of August 4th in Team Z Arlington

By: ed

Hi folks – We have another busy week in front of us.   I have a few things on my personal schedule that will keep me from Wed/Thurs workouts – but I have listed the workout leader names below (for the benefit of new Zrs or people who have not come to those workouts yet) next to the workout. I am doing a wedding thing on Wed (not even sure what, I’ve just been told where to be). I am flying out to the Nationals award banquet on Thurday – I will be back for the weekend workouts.

New Zs – rely on your workout leaders and mentors with any question – trust me in that they love to talk about what they know and pretend to be experts. :-) Otherwise – if you would like a conversation with me for any reason, please reach out and let me know.

Have a great week everyone – make sure you get those workouts in! Read More >>
