July Newsletter

Please also be sure to fill out the following survey to help us better network athletes, encourage you at races, and more! 
We hope you are having a SUPER summer and triathlon season! Many of you are proudly wearing the team kit at races everywhere and it is doing more than you know to spread the Team RWB word! For those of you who bought cycling jerseys or uniforms from the 2nd order, that order has arrived.  Our volunteer Merchandise Managers (Kurt and Haley) are sorting through all of the orders, packaging, and shipping them as quickly as possible.  Please give 2-3 weeks for delivery as they have A LOT to do and they are volunteers!  If you are concerned about having it for a race, please email haley@teamrwb.org and let her know.  If you haven’t ordered a uniform yet, we have plenty so buy one today and you’ll be the sharpest looking patriot at your next race!
  In expectation of winter, we are going to place an order for some winter gear, specifically Cycling Jackets, Arm Warmers, and Wind Vests.  This is a PRE-PAY order only! Details are in the newsletter, but the deadline for ordering is 8 AUGUST! Don’t delay, we’ll likely only get one of these orders in for the winter and we do not currently have the funds to invest in winter item inventory.  Just like the tri-kits, these will be high quality K-Swiss items!
  We have a lot of upcoming races for which you can still register: REV3 Cedar Point (some charity fundraising slots still exist! Email brittany@teamrwb.org), Super Frog Half-Iron (San Diego), and CajunMan Sprint (Louisiana).  PLUS, just like we had an AWESOME time at Ironman Texas in May, we will be doing it again in May of 2012!  Team RWB will man an aid station on the run again (tons of fun and motivation for the racers) AND we already have several athletes signed up to race. The race is STILL OPEN—so if you’re thinking about an Ironman, come join your teammates in The Woodlands next May! You won’t be disappointed and there will be plenty of Team RWB motivation to keep you moving!
  Lastly, we encourage you to please visit our sponsors for your equipment, coaching, and training plan needs! These great friends are giving a lot to Team RWB and especially to you, the athlete! Supporting them is also supporting us!  And oh by the way, they've got some phenomenal gear!

Beat the heat, train hard, race hard, have fun, and remember IT’S OUR TURN!

Brittany, Steve, Haley and Kurt
