Holiday Savage Run – 1st Annual Event

Sunday, December 18, 2022 – 6 am – Lake Eola

I want to make this event a fun bad ass event! Please bring your favorite Tri Club shirt and enjoy the 6 laps challenge. Make sure to bring a gel, electrolytes and water!

CFL Tri Club Holiday Party – Dec 18, 2022 – 5:00 pm – 7 pm

CFL Tri Club / Tri Peak Athlete Warriors

It is time to show off your culinary streak by whipping up some family delicacy, or something holiday themed. It’s a laid back contest where everyone is the judge.

Address: 904 Spring Park Loop, Celebration, FL

There will be three categories of prizes – 

  1. Most Creative/Best Holiday Theme
  2. Best Tasting Food or Drink
  3. Best Tasting Dessert

We have hosted this party in the past, and had some great entries, like “Dasher’s Disaster”, meatloaf shaped like a reindeer that had been run over by a Jeep, or “Whoa, Whoa, WHOA!”, a complete gingerbread house with Santa and his reindeer piled up on the front lawn. 

You are not required to bring a homemade dish, and don’t worry, if you just want to bring something store bought; that’s fine too.

For you competitors, here are a few hints – 

  1. Make your dish easy to eat. Finger foods works well, or something that is easy to divide up.
  2. Make enough food, but smaller portions, I’m sure there will be a lot to eat.
  3. Bring what you need to serve your food, and serving utensils. 
  4. This is one party where arriving early is preferable. Food should be presented and ready to eat at 5:30, as judging will commence at that time.
  5. Seconds and thirds are encouraged, especially when trying to decide on who to vote for but let everyone get a taste…no fair trying to eat all of the competition.

Here is a hint for the more competitive in the bunch: Making it “showy” with a cute name – it tends to influence the judges. 🙂

There will be trivia awards too!!!

Week of December 11 – 18, 2022

Good evening team, 

What an amazing week! Can you believe that our Holiday party is next Sunday!

Post Race Fueling

As we are aware leading into our races, we are burning a ton of calories and crushing our workouts. We fuel our bodies for our performances; however, when our race is over… many of you stop training completely… it is important to recover at the same time we need to remain active and fuel for recovery. Allow yourself a cheat meal the day after the race and please fuel for proper healing. If poor choices are made, you will have unnecessary weight gain and you will lose fitness. If you need guidance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Holiday Party – December 18

Show off your cooking skills and bring a dish. Best dish will win a prize! Join us on December 18 at Risa and Rob’s Home for our Annual Holiday Party! In addition, we will be doing a white elephant exchange; therefore, please bring a gift no more than 25 dollars.

Address: 904 Spring Park Loop, Celebration

Time: 5 pm – 8 pm

It takes 3 – 4 weeks for your body to adapt to your training. Don’t wait till the last minute to start training for your race. You don’t want to overload your body too much; especially, if you are trying to pile up for lost time. This overload can lead to an injury, burn out and eating your feelings. Talk to me and lets set a plan.

    • Augusta 70.3 / Cozumel 70.3
