The weather is warming up and it's time to get into the sprint training and race season! We had a great time supporting the racers that participated in the Spears YMCA Indoor Tri on March 19th, and I'd like to welcome several of those racers to the team. Coming up in about a week are the 2nd and 3rd races in the 2017 TTT Race Series, the Belews Lake Sprint and International Triathlons. Right now the weather is looking like it will be much better than last year. No snow! Also towards the end of the month we've got a good sized group of TTTers headed to White Lake for a weekend of racing and fun!

If you're going to be racing or volunteering at the Belews races, be sure to come by the TTT tent and signup to get your race series points. Also, if you're not racing but would like to come support our team members or help out at our tent, let me know. It's a great way for beginners to learn the ropes and prepare yourself for triathlon, and a great way for experienced triathletes to share some knowledge and cheer on your friends. Hope to see a bunch of you out there!

Pain Management and teamindure - Myths versus Reality
Pete Barusic, Physical Therapist and founder of teamindure will help sort out some of the myths and reality when it comes to Pain and teamindure.  Attendees will get a better understanding on the physiological reasons for pain, what the short and long term implications are for pain and what to do about the pain they may be experiencing.   This will be a great opportunity to discover the difference between pain you may be able to push through and when it may be necessary to seek medical treatment.   
He will also discuss how to get the most out of 2017 and how teamindure is more than purchasing shirts or magnets.  The merchandise only provides the ability to demonstrate the length you are willing to go to race along and cheer on those that define strength. teamindure is a lifestyle wrapped up in signage.
