News from ET April 28,  2010

Coach JoeHello Friends!
Spring is in the air, and it's an exciting time of year for all of us with the running race season upon us and tri season looming!  :)
The past few weeks have been a very busy time for the ET crew!  We had a spectacular trip to Solvang, CA for our Spring Training Camp, we made our annual trek north to Madison to run the Crazy Legs 8K, and ET Bike Club kicked off the outdoor ride season with our first ride of the year last Sunday.  The ET Indoor Triathlon at LifeStart Central Park Athletic Club in Lisle was a huge success!  Congratulations to all the athletes who completed the race, and THANK YOU to all of our sponsors and volunteers!  We are looking forward to our next ET Indoor Triathlon coming up on May 16th at  LifeStart Continental Athletic Club in Rolling Meadows. 
We are very pleased to announce one of our new programs, ET Tri Club sponsored by Spokes.   You can read all about it below, as well as some of the other new and exciting programs that we have going on at ET!
If we can help you achieve your dreams, just let us know! 
Thank you for your continued support of EXPERIENCETriathlon!

run club herrickWelcome to ET Run Club

ET Run Club is FREE and open to everyone - regardless of fitness level or running experience!!
The experienced and certified coaches of EXPERIENCETriathlon invite you to come join one of our regular group runs that are held on Saturday mornings at 8 AM.
We run outside year round, and we run in small groups according to distance and pace. The distance typically ranges from 3 to 7 miles on any given run, and we make sure no one runs alone.
From May through October we run the picturesque trails of Herrick Lake in Wheaton which provide a little relief from the sun. We meet in the North parking lot, next to the boat rental building.  Click here for directions.
One of the highlights of our group run is the coffee social held after almost every run -- after all, who doesn't run to EAT?
ET Bike Club 1 Welcome to ET Bike Club

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."
