*Note:  Pool Closures start this week.  Please note the Pool Closure Information below and update your personal calendars.  At one point – many of our main Virginia Pools will all be closed at the same time.  We have secured a few extra weeks at an outdoor 50 meter pool in Springfield.  It may take a little extra time -but it is a 50 meter pool…outside.  Worth the effort.

** This is also the time of year where many of our swim coaches have vacation or various other commitments.  So… Va folks – I move around to help cover gaps.  I will be at Chinquapin on Tues morning of this week, then at Providence on Thursday morning.

Important announcements and things to look for this week and on the horizon”¦.

  1. The South Riding Pool Sprint is this coming weekend, on Sunday.  This is the same day as our “all hands run”.  The triathlon starts at 7 am.  When the race ends, we will have plenty of time to meet our “all hands run” group for the barbecue.  Bring your medals!
  2. Reminder for this weekend’s mid/late summer all hands ride, please vote on Event Brite.   This is a special weekend that we host 1 or 2 times per year.  Each “all hands ride” is centered around one of the hardest weekends of the year for everyone on the team (meaning, highest volume).  We have facilities permitted with bathrooms, we will be barbecuing after the ride and run each day.  We will stagger start times in order that all of our runners and riders will finish in groups, or a group – in order to maximize social!  We encourage you to invite your friends, family, other to meet us at the barbecue as you are finishing up your workout – or if they’d like to get involved in helping us…we could always use the help!
  3. Pool Closures  –  This week, Claude Moore is closed and will reopen on Tuesday Sept 6.  Next week – Spring Hill will close and reopen on Sept 26 (major work being done).  Providence closes the week of Sept 6 and reopens the week of September 19.
