Tri Junkie Sprint Mock Tri - Quick Recap 08-08-2012

The Tri-Junkie Club is in the middle of rereleasing ourselves to the DFW area. We’re making an effort to get people into living a healthy life style. Over the past couple weeks we’ve had a conservative 15% growth in membership. We are offering our knowledge and experience to anyone from the beginner to the advanced athlete. Our yearly membership dues are the lowest around the DFW area. We are looking forward to offer opportunity to anyone who is interested.  

There were 13 participants in the mock tri. The athletes experience ranged from beginner to advance. This was a no pressure event with varied distances. It was the athlete’s option to swim, bike and run with in their comfort zone. Everyone had a blast, from the participants to the volunteers and even the children who showed up to play in the lake.

Here’s a quick clip from this weeks mock tri (http://youtu.be/2CgisAgH1uE). We hope to see many new faces at the next one. We were fortunate and thankful to have two of the club’s sponsors out there with us, Lee with Xterra wetsuits and Jeff from B&B Bicycles.
