It has been some time since I have update the blog and I am sorry for that, it’s been a busy time and I promise to write some more about the off season and some reflections on the past season. What I want to spread the word about now is I am working with Lifetime Fitness as part of their Pro Ambassador program. I have been given an entry code for anyone wishing to do the LTFMinneapolis, LTF Chicago, or the Dallas US Open Triathlon. The code will get you a 10% discount on your race entry. Even better is 10% of your entry fee will go to a charity of my choice. I have chosen Dare 2 Tri. It is a great organization with some amazing volunteers and athletes. I have had the opportunity to volunteer with them in the past and teach some swim lessons to some of their athletes. All the athletes and Volunteers are truly an inspiration. Please read below for additional information on Dare 2 Tri or click on any of the links.
The discount code to get 10% off your entry is LTTri908. You can find all three races here http://www.racetothetoyotacup.com/events/
ONE INSPIRES MANY
Dare2tri Paratriathlon club was launched in January 2011. The club serves youth, adults and injured service members who have a physical disability such as amputation, spinal cord injury, stroke, Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy as well as those with visual impairments or blindness. We serve athletes of all ability levels from beginner to elite.

Our club is committed to providing the adaptive equipment, training opportunities, qualified coaching, and support for athletes through access to trained handlers and guides. We will ensure that athletes are fully prepared to dare2tri and inspire others to do the same.
