As of now ”“ the weather for Saturday looks awesome, so I’m asking for input on whether you’d like the team to have an unsupported ride, stay inside for the group spin/movie, or ride on your own.

===========================================================

  1. Important Announcements and Reminders for this week
  • This week is race week for those at Shamrock or Scope it out 5k.
  • For the rest of us it is a transition week and group activities are quiet.     Swims are on as normal, Yoga is on for Friday AM.
  • In light of the quiet week ”“ I thought I’d try to get an “all team group run and happy hour” put together for this coming Wednesday. The run will start a little later than usual at 6:45 PM at PRR Arlington, and then we will hit the Greene Turtle in Ballston at around 7:30 PM.   I hope to see as many Maryland and Westies (and Arlingtonians) there as possible.
  • Tuesday 3/15 Coach Ed is meeting several newer/nervous swimmers at Providence Rec Center in the AM and Claude Moore Rec Center in the PM.   Please join in if you fit in this category and I mean everyone!
  • Don’t forget where to find  our race discounts, as well as race/event plans for the year.  Members.triteamz.com then Files Section ”“  Annual Planning Resources Folder.   Keep these discounts in the family ”“ I will ask for reports and non-Zrs using our discount codes will be corrected by the race directors.
  • Don’t forget that Colonies Zones Swim Meet is open for registration.   This is a Friday night swim meet on April 8 held locally at George Mason University.
  • You can choose the 1,000 freestyle or the 1,650.   This a swim in the Pool event.
  • We will all start from in water.   No diving. No flip turns.   Teammates count for you.
  • Meet is reverse seeded so fast people go first (then go home).   Then the last 3-4 heats (or more) are ALL Team Zrs.   No pressure event ”“ I promise everyone always LOVES this event.
  • Especially if you want to test yourself in a safe, familiar environment.   You can rest on walls ”“ swim any stroke you like (freestyle literally means any style you want).
  • Get that entry in before the race fills up.   The mile fills every year.  https://www.clubassistant.com/club/meet_information.cfm?c=1463&smid=7077
