Hanging On...General ramblings....

It's that time of year again folks.  The time when we all start trying to decide just how much gas we have left in the tank for the 2014 race season.  Maybe you have been racing all summer and need a break.  Maybe you have NOT raced much this year and are just coming into good form.  Either way, there is still plenty of time to get out there and enjoy the summer.  Whether you decide to enter a few end of the season events or just mix things up by getting outside and doing some different activities, JUST DO IT.  We endure long winters here in Southern Maine and these are the days we long for as we log our off-season training hours on the trainer, treadmill or in the pool.  This is a great time of year to plan that hike you have been putting off, schedule that long bike ride to WHEREVER and back, or just jump into a few 5k's.  Whatever you decide, take the opportunity to enjoy your hard earned fitness.

To that end, many of our 207 athletes have been working hard since last winter.  It is never a bad idea to step away for a short time.  This helps you take a moment to put the 2014 season behind you and look toward 2015 with some goals in mind.  Think about what you have accomplished, be realistic and set the bar for next season.  If you would like to talk with either Rick or myself about this we are available.  We are reworking our website too.  We have added our new rate sheet and have come to the table with a few different coaching options rather than the "one size fits all" approach.  Information should be available in the next day or so. We appreciate all of the feedback that we have received and will always work to improve every aspect our coaching and 207 Multisport.

We are planning to get everyone together at some point to celebrate the season and chat about upcoming events like our Tucson Training Camp, The Speed Lab/OA and other exciting stuff.  We hope to have a date picked soon so stay tuned.

I just wanted to give a shout out to all the kind folks from KBTC.  All of us from 207 Multisport and The OA Tri Team have felt very welcome at KBTC events!  We have tried to do the same, whether it be a training camp, OA classes or group rides etc.  I just thought it was worth mentioning that we appreciate the coexistence and the mutual support on the race scene.  It ALL good stuff!!!  Thanks again!

And while I am thanking people....THANK YOU to Stan and Jenny Skolfield for opening their home to us after the Rev3 event.  A good time was had by all!

SO, keep at it guys, let's enjoy a safe and competitive fall season and soak it all in before things start to wind down.

Train smart.
