Let’s see those race reports from Rock Hall and VA, Wine Country Half Marathon. I’ll bet they will be awesome to read. Can you believe that in two weeks, we have the Great Chesapeake Bay Swim, Eagleman and Challenge Williamsburg all on the same weekend? Team Z green will dominate!

Happy Memorial Day and thank you to those currently serving as well as our veterans past and present for your service to our country. You rock!

The Wilderness Ride/of Misery weekend was spectacular. That area of Virginia is stunningly beautiful. Congrats to all of those who participated this weekend in either Wilderness/MoM or the Jim McDonnell Swims. As always, we would love to hear about your swim or ride experience. You’d be surprised how many Zers read your race reports. They can be very inspiring and motivational.

It’s Rock Hall/VA. Wine Country Race weekend! You’re either going to be eating crabs or drinking lots of wine. Sweet! Hang on tight Team Z. The rest of the year is going to be packed with races. Keep up if can.

A huge thanks to all the Zers who helped make Monticelloman so awesome. Who knew such a relatively small group of highly motivated Zers could make such a positive impression? Should it really surprise anyone that we stand out by cheering for everyone and cheering with enthusiasm? You’d think more people would pick up on our” secret” to success. Naaaah. Too much work. We don’t care. That’s how we roll. Let’s keep the momentum rolling this weekend for the Kinetic Half and Sprint. WE WILL DOMINATE AND HAVE FUN DOING IT!

The Week of April 27, 2015

Thanks to all who showed up or contributed to the Crawfish Boil to support the fight to cure Multiple Sclerosis. It was great to see so much support for a cause that’s so personal to us.  Congrats to our Zers who completed the Westfield’s Triathlon. This race traditionally attracts a lot of newbies and it’s a great way to “get your feet wet” before tackling bigger challenges.

By the way, to those who attended the Haymarket group ride or the Millbrook Quarry open water swim: Well done! The weather was perfect for a ride and we had Zers who completed their very first open water swim. Good for you!

Prepare yourself Team Z. Our first outdoor team triathlon race takes place this weekend in Charlottesville, VA. Strap yourself in and buckle that bike helmet. The next six months will be crazy awesome!

The Week of March 30, 2015

Did you know that all of you current Zers potentially just made 40+ new friends? I kid you not. That’s how many new Zers and alumni joined Team Z this past weekend. Woo hoo! Welcome New Zers and welcome back Team Z alumni! It’s awesome to have you all on the team.  If you’re new to the team or are an alumni but have been away for a while, expect an email or phone call from your mentor sometime this week.

I want to thank all of you who attended last week’s joint happy hour at the Cheesecake Factory at Tysons Galleria. For the new Zers, each chapter normally does its own happy hour during a recovery week. We decided to combine the happy hours into one mega happy hour. Coach Ed said that he counted 70 Zers there at one time or another. 70 ZERS!! Wow! It was so good to meet some new Zers and get to reconnect with Zers who I hadn’t seen in a while. Both Ed and I have gotten lots of positive comments about the happy hour and many want to know when we can do it again. If you missed this happy hour, don’t worry. We’ll schedule more of these later in the year. In the meantime, make an effort to attend the Arlington, West, or MDC happy hours when they come up.

The Week of March 23, 2015

It was a very good weekend. I’m exhausted, but it’s the good kind of exhaustion where you feel like all the work was worth it. Both RNR DC and Shamrock were awesome in different ways. Honestly, sometimes it’s just nice to get out of the DC area. Now I’m rambling. Congrats to all of our Shamrock Zers. Please keep writing those race reports! I could go on and on, but I’ll save it for the “Special” happy hour we will be having this Wednesday evening. I hope to see all of you there.
