Ok Pink Ladies,
Time to take off your Spanx off and get this party started for 2012! No resolutions this time, those get broken. This is the time to decide what you want to accomplish for the New Year. Let’s set some realistic goals, plan what races you want to run, tri or swim and get ready to train with some of the coolest cats in Wilmington! You’ve joined the Pink Ladies now (and if you didn’t, you know you want to!). Let’s empower, inspire, motivate, and support our local charity Nourish NC together. So share your plan and goals with an old or new friend and hold each other accountable.
"Goals. There's no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There's no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There's no telling what will happen when you act upon them.' -Jim Rohn
Don’t know where to start? Or what races to begin with?
Visit these websites below. You can search by race type or by date…but if you’re a newbie, probably best to stay local and start with the Azalea Tri on March 10. Coach Karen Buxton is providing an 8 week training plan for you to use to get prepared and started. The race itself is a 12 lap pool swim, 10 mile bike and 5 k finish all at UNCW. If you are not interested in racing, we still need Pink Lady volunteers. With enough volunteers we ensure our charity Nourish NC will get a wonderful financial contribution! Another notable race is our Lil Washington race within the FS Series on May 19-20! The format has changed but this will be our 3rd annual Pink Ladies tri is sure to be a fun and exciting weekend indeed! Don’t be intimidated…the sprint is super fun and fast!
In January we are going to offering a Pink Ladies running/shoe fit clinic (dates tbd) that will be perfect for the seasoned marathon runner or perfect prep for the athlete wanting to do their first 5k!
Tri Tops are being designed and we will be have fit kits delivered in January so that we can have them ready for Azalea and cheer on the sea of pink! Details to come.
The holidays have been busy and we are working on placing all your membership info into our databases and will be mailing out laminated membership card soon so you can take advantage of all the local sponsor discounts in town. Be sure to show your card at TrySports and BikeCycles too as they both give a great percentage of sales back to the Pink Ladies 2012 charity! Thanks as always to ALL our amazing sponsors!
So as we come to the end of another year, here’s to you, your health, your future and what we can accomplish together! 2012 is going to be fabulous indeed!
Eliza, Sami, Jane and Elizabeth
