Coach Ed raved and I mean RAVED about how awesome Kinetic was this weekend. Did you have a great race weekend? Please share your race report with the team. Curious Zers want to know!

This is a recovery week! We have post recovery runs, yoga and happy hours plus our usual swim practices. In fact, the delay in this message was so that I could nail down the location of the three Wednesday happy hours.

In addition, this is also IM Chattanooga 70.3 (Choo, Choo) race /IM Chattanooga 140.6 training camp weekend. I think those traveling to Chattanooga are going to have a super fun time!
