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.

Important Announcements and Reminders for this week

 Ã‚ ·                 Once again, I can’t emphasize enough how important it will be to vote on the weekend poll or ANY poll we create. Planning a weekend is a ton of work. Allowing us to know what your plans are will help us enormously.   The race weekends are so much fun and we want to make sure you are adequately supported regardless of whether you attend a race or a weekend ride/run.   Please help us out and be sure to cast your votes on the polls.
