Week of May 9 – 15, 2022

Congratulations al of the athletes who raced this past weekend:

  • Miguel A.
  • Michael A.
  • Justin G.

I am very proud of all of you. Your hard work does pay off!

Keep on Grinding!

At times we train and challenge ourselves to the next level. However, situation not always go to our favor. NO matter how hard life hits us, we need to get back and keep on fighting. So when yo undo get hit, get back up and say, “Is that all you got. Come on…. HIT ME again and is that all you got!”

This is part of your Journey and we should never give up on your dreams. So put down the donut, don’t eat your feelings and lets get back at it. (I will see you Tuesday morning for the bike session.)

Weekly Schedule

Please review the schedule as there are a few adjustments.

Keep up the good work everyone,
