Go GIrl Triathlon This Saturday/No Sunday plans

What's the plan for Sunday? Not a damn thing besides RECOVERY!

There will be no formal Sunday group activity this week due to so many ladies in our group participating in the Go Girl Triathlon on Saturday morning! Come by Eagle Creek Park (beach area) to cheer everyone on to the finish line. The Tri starts at 8am so arrive early to get parking and to not get stuck in traffic while 600 women bike and run past you. Afterwards, come by Kelly's house for a post-tri party. Bring a dish to pitch in. Publish Post

Sunday, Aug. 15--SWIMMING at 7am

Yep, it's an early morning Goddess swimming adventure on Sunday the 15th. Why so early? So we don't get caught swimming in Eagle Creek later in the day (yes, swimming is prohibited so those of you who don't want another arrest on your record better stay home).

Those of you who don't yet have a record, who don't care about another arrest, or who are feeling invincible, COME ON BY!

We are meeting at Eagles Hideaway (oooh, that even sounds like the perfect clandestine meeting spot for the Goddess Gang, doesn't it?) at 7am sharp. Richard from PR Fitness will be our swimming coach and guide...he breaks the law doing this ALL of the time! So far, no arrests for illegal swimming. He's either very lucky or he can swim faster than park rangers can.

For directions to Eagles Hideaway, please mapquest the address...8901 W 65th Street, Indianapolis.

Sunday, Aug. 8 - Trail Run & Easy Bike

Hey Everyone,

We were aiming for a swim this Sunday on the 8th but that's been pushed back to the 15th. More to come on that next week.

For THIS Sunday, Aug. 8, at 8am we will meet at Eagle Creek Park (71st street entrance) for a trail run. Yes, we may get lost on the trails but that's where "adventure" comes into play.

After the run, I am going to do a very easy bike ride around the park (as in EASY) if anyone wants to join me. I need to break-in my butt on my new bike seat....ouch. FYI, Kelly and I got excellent service at Matthews Bike shop on Pendleton Pike if anyone is interested; ask for Scott Henning and tell him the very talkative, off-color triathlon girls (one of which test drove bikes barefoot - is that like barefoot running?) recommended him.

Don't forget that Chris and Richard of PR Fitness will be hosting a Triathlon info session on Sunday from 2-4pm. For directions, visit

As always, no need to RSVP. Just be at the 71st entrance by 8am on Sunday the 8th if you want to join us.

Sunday, Aug. 1 Recap

A small but mighty force gathered at Eagle Creek this Sunday - Sherri and Kelly. We rode bikes for 5 miles, then ran 3 miles. Great conversation the entire time! Check back later in the week for the Aug. 8, Sunday, plans.

P.S. - After the biking/running, I rented a kayak from the park and paddled for 2 hours...FUN!!!! Think this may be an outing for us in the future. Thanks to Pam T. for introducing me to this fun sport and being my tour guide yesterday.
