"Thanks for the advice Mike.  I think I might do just that.  Does anyone know if I'm not slated to volunteer until late on race day if I need to show up the day prior or just a few hours early on race day?"

"Thank you Jerry!  Volunteering would be ideal, but I can't afford a hotel for the weekend considering I'll finally have to buy a wetsuit for next years race!  I'll will be there Monday morning."

The W.O.W center was created because we live in such a Rural Area and the nearest gym is about 45 minutes away. With the price of a membership and the gas it takes to get there is too high for our area. I started the W.O.W center with the goal of teaching low-impact aerobics, strength training and education programs for healthy living and eating never realizing how it would turn out. I started by putting an ad in the local newspaper, I had so many people show up for just the meeting I was amazed. I did a lecture on the whole program and gave samples of healthy but tasty food. I started the aerobics class the next week, two days in the gym and one day outside in the ball field. I started out with one treadmill and one stationary bike. I started buying hand weights at yard sales and at the local goodwill. Most people liked the aerobics and the long walks through the trails. I know have a full gym. I eventually had to get a bigger building and the township lets me rent the old school house. I have an early morning group, a mid morning group and and night group. I had my first group of people do a 5k after the first year, these people said that they would never be runners! I had two people in the group lose 50lbs in the first year and more after that.....I love my program and I wish I could commit even more time to it but I have to work also..lol and train. If you need more info please feel free to ask....

Let me know if you want to grab a walk or cup of joe. (I don't actually drink coffee but could do tea. :)

It's nice to not be alone in the struggle with depression - and how it impacts training. Are you joining the group at the banquet or Sully's? It would be nice to meet in person, if it works out.

We are having near arctic temps again too. I can hardly wait to feel the wind on my face tonight when I go outside for my run..... ;)

Thanks brother! I am planning on 4 Ironman events + Kona! So 5 is pretty good along with some others mixed in.

hi joe, commenting on your tri singles comment...."normal" people don't understand the life of a triathlete, you have to meet someone doing the sport so you can share in the fun of racing, training, traveling, eating, etc. I tried a "normal" guy after dating triathletes and he was very jealous of all the time triathlon took from "us". So I said "See ya, I have to go train for IM Brazil now " :0

The weather is pretty nice usually... starting to warm up... probably upper 80's low 90's... nice weather though. May isn't usually too terribly windy - especially since you're not right on the gulf coast for the race... Should be a great race!

As far as the wheels... I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They are amazing and fast! :) GREAT choice on my part for those particular wheels! :D Sometimes the wind (cross) makes a difference but as long as you have a strong core, you should be fine... I haven't had too much of an issue with them the first time riding w/ hard winds was different but not too bad... :D

Hey Joe! Good to see someone on here thats located so close to me :) There arn't a lot of ppl around me who spend majority of thier time training for marathons and tris. So having some company for a 5 hour bike ride would be awesome!

Thanks, Joe. I'm pretty nervous about it! It's good to know that you had a positive enough experience to go back again!!
