Hello everyone! Coach Alexis is in the house. Welcome Team Z to 2015! First off, huge props to the new and veteran Zers who attended our weekend clinics. Attendance was awesome! I especially enjoyed meeting all the new Zers. I’m sure the lack of a turnout at the Sunday Harwood ride was an anomaly. While on his honeymoon, I’m certain Coach Ed would be pumped to know that tons of Zers attended the happy hours and weekend group rides and runs. Let’s make this happen, especially you new Zers! Please read this email in its entirety. There are some logistical changes you need to know.

Important Announcements and Reminders for this week

  • A reminder that there is NO BOOT CAMPS OR YOGA OR FOAM ROLLER THIS WEEK OR NEXT ”“ we start back with the first work week after next week (so Monday the 12th we are back in the mix).
  • And now to contradict myself…the exception to the preceding statement is Arlington. Arlington had yoga this morning and will also offer yoga on Thursday evening from 6:30 to 7:30 PM at Lyon Village.
  • The Monday Arlington post recovery run happy hour will be at Anne and Dave’s Place. There will be salad, beer and spaghetti for dinner followed by cuddling up to watch Galavant. The address is
    3926 4th St North apartment 3 Arlington, VA 22203 and is within walking distance of PRR.
  • The Tuesday-Thursday morning swims at UDC-Van Ness are back on beginning tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM. Woo Hoo!!
  • Happy Hour will be on WEDNESDAY in Arlington and West. The MD/DC happy hour will be on THURSDAY for this week only. This, at least, gives me the option of attending all three. Yes I have attended all three happy hours in one evening, but I drove 80 mph (which I know in the DC area is the new 60 mph) to make it happen. Speed kills, and I would like to stick around for future happy hours.
