Things are heating up

It's not just the weather that's heating up this week. Plans for the 2013 BSM Tri are well underway. Our fearless leader Nancy Availla spent some time on the air this morning at KNCO and The Star, our free clinics continue tonight (Tuesday) and this weekend (see below for more details) and women have been spotted around town, at the lake and on Facebook hard at work training. There are only two months to go!

2013 Clinics start tomorrow

Hi Triathletes. Just a reminder that the 2013 clinics begin tomorrow with the First Timers/Training Clinic at Club Sierra from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. A complete list of training clinics is available under the Event Information link.

The 18th annual BSM Celebration of Life Triathlon is done. Thank you to the athletes, volunteers, supporters and sponsors who made this year's event great. The weather and lake were beautiful, supporters were out in force and we hope the athletes had an inspiring day!

2012 results will be posted as soon as they're available. Stay tuned to the website for more post-race information.

Anyone planning their next event/race? Where? We'd love to hear about how you train in the 'off' BSM Celebration of Life season!

Online registration ends at NOON!

Just a friendly reminder that online registration ends at noon today. If you are unable to make that deadline, or are just a procrastinator, there's still time! Download a registration form and bring it to the Event Expo Saturday. While we cannot guarantee you'll get a t-shirt, you can still participate in the Celebration of Life Triathlon and support a great cause!

Still time to join the fun!

With just one week to go, there's still time to join in the fun of the 18th annual Barbara Schmidt Millar Celebration of Life Triathlon! Online registration is open through noon Friday, Sept. 14. Or you can register at our Event Expo next Saturday, Sept. 15.

This is going to be a busy weekend at Cascade Shores! How's your training going?

Use caution on course

As athletes transition their training up to Cascade Shores and gear up the workouts, please use caution. From miles of well-traveled roadways to a busy summertime lake, it's best to be mindful while riding, running or swimming. Thank you Heather for bringing our attention to an incident that occurred Friday, and for the tip to pay attention while training in the evening.

Please continue to be safe out there!

Have you trained on the course yet?

Now that August is here, training activity has picked up at Scotts Flat Lake. It's exciting to see women (and oftentimes their male supporters/training partners) swimming in the lake, riding Pasquale Rd and running the course. Nearly every morning now there are women up at the lake for a swim and/or ride. If you haven't gotten out there yet, never fear, there is still plenty of time.
