Coach Joe 
Hello Friends,
It's April and it feels like Summer in Chicago this week!  I hope you've had a chance to get outside with your run and bike workouts.  It's been just fabulous.
The ET Indoor Triathlon at LifeStart Central Park is rapidly approaching, and we are scheduling another indoor triathlon at LifeStart Continental Club in Rolling Meadows on May 16.  Stay tuned for registration details for that event in the next ET News.  
With race season quickly approaching, classes for swim, bike and run are in full swing.  Please let us know if you'd like to get help from one of our coaches in a group setting.  We'd love to have you join us!
After a very successful season of indoor Computrainer cycling, we are proud to announce that our very popular outdoor ET Bike Club will begin on April 25.  You can read all about it below.  
Over the next few months, the ET crew will be traveling to ET Spring Camp in Solvang, CA, Crazy Legs 8K in Madison, WI and finally to Memphis in May for our annual triathlon season kickoff race.  We'd love to have you join us on these fun trips.  Just drop me an email if you'd like more information.  Last but not least, our weekly open water swim clinics will be starting at Centennial Beach on June 7.
If we can help you achieve your dream, please let us know.
Thanks for your continued support of EXPERIENCETriathlon.
Coach Joe

ET Bike Club 1 Welcome to ET Bike Club

Want to make new friends, ride in a safe group environment on country roads, be supported by experienced and certified coaches from EXPERIENCETriathlon, and have big fun? Then ET Bike Club is for you!

Join ET for a great ride on rural routes in Naperville, Plainfield, Oswego, Yorkville, and St. Charles on almost every Sunday from April through October. All abilities from first timer to veteran rider are welcome. We divide the group into smaller groups that do various distances and speeds ranging from 13-20mph and 20-60 miles on most days.

ET Bike Club is FREE and open to everyone!!

"ET Bike Clubbers are super nice. The riders made me feel welcome right away and the coaches were super helpful. They had route maps and made sure that nobody was dropped or left out on the road. They even stopped and did an impromptu tire changing clinic right on the side of the road when one of the riders got a flat. I enjoyed the whole experience and plan to come back every week."

Running on Empty
As a sports dietitian, I frequently encounter people who want to talk to me - just not right now.  They want to meet right before race day!  Athletes are clearly concerned about race day nutrition.  But meeting goals on race day is about more than just having a customized nutrition and hydration plan.  Meeting race goals is based on having first-rate workouts in the months and years before race day.  In turn, those workouts are supported by superior daily nutrition habits that promote high energy levels and mental acuity.
How do you get that boundless energy and razor-sharp mind?  Fuel yourself properly.  Food is fuel for the body like gasoline is fuel for an automobile.  The human body functions like a fine automobile, except that we have three gas tanks: fat, muscle, and liver.
