"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
Dear Tri Babes ~
I know you are excited to get started with our 2013 season. So, let's get this party started!!! Please note that this is
the TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE KITSAP TRI BABES!!! Shelley Mortvedt, of Dyes Inlet Design, is hard at work
on a special commemorative shirt design!!!
The main thing you need to realize is that your registration for the Kitsap Tri Babes training group is separate from
your registration for your triathlon event. The Kitsap Tri Babes is a training group. We meet twice weekly June
through September. On Tuesdays, we conduct a Group Lake Swim at Wildcat Lake; on Saturdays we conduct a
Group Bike Ride followed by a Run OR Walk (these start at the Evergreen Lutheran Church on the West end of
Holly Rd. in Seabeck). Most Tri Babes comPLETE one (or both of the following events): The Athleta Iron Girl
Triathlon in Seattle on Sunday August 18th 2013 and/or the Tri Turtle Tri at Wildcat Lake on Sunday September
8th, 2013. You can register on-line RIGHT NOW for the Iron Girl; on-line registration for Tri Turtle Tri will open on
Monday May 13th at 8:00a.m.
If you want to register for the Kitsap Tri Babes sooner rather than later, please print out the attached
Registration Form and Liability Waiver. You can mail them with your Registration fee to me OR you can bring
them to the next Pre Season Tri Babe activity which you attend. Please know that you will have PLENTY of future
opportunities to register for the 2013 Kitsap Tri Babe training season.
For now, as a general rule, we will continue to conduct our weekly Athlete's Hour Circuit Training Classes on
Saturdays from 10:30-11:30a.m. at Expansions Yoga (but check the calendar on the www.kitsaptribabes.com
website to be certain since there are "exception" weeks when we/I will be doing something else!!!
