Hey all. If you are signed up for a May/June/July IM for 2011 (e.g St. George, Houston, CDA, Placid) and are interested in joining a training group for the winter/spring, shoot me an email stiefler [at] gmail [dot] com. A few of us were talking at the Ironman panel earlier this month and we're looking to start a training group to help push each other through workouts in the cold and dark. So far it looks like we have about five or six interested, with a mix of newbies and grizzled vets. We'd love to have more folks.
We probably won't start training together til later this year, but I'm just trying to gauge interest and maybe organize a happy hour in the interim. We also may want to look for group discounts on coaching, V02 max testing, etc. this fall. Let me know if you're interested.
If this is your polite way of saying "Tuan, it would be an honor and a priviledge to pull you on the bike on any given Sundays. Please come out to brighten my day."
The answer is yes I'm interested in letting you pull me on the bike. I'm even going to forgive your blantant disregard and disrespect for people training for IM Germany (on the same weekend as Lake Placid).
Yes, your Royalness, that is exactly what I was trying to say. I look forward to a winter spent as a humble mule in the royal caravan.
I'm planning on signing up for my first Ironman (Vineman) today and an am in need of a training group. Let me know if you guys are still adding folks and we can figure out if it might work.
You forgot to mention Brazil! :-)
I am doing Brazil at the end of May, so this group would be perfect. Please add me to your list.
I'm thinking of Vineman and others, please add me. Thanks.
If you need anyone to set up some cold weather swims at Sandy Point this winter/spring, I can be your man. Heck, the water was a warm 55 degrees in early April. That's even warmer than the swim temps at St. George.
I don't know how long I'll be in the area and my work schedule is odd so I may not be able to join you very often, but please add me to the list.

I'll be looking to ride Saturdays and run long Sundays all winter long. I'll run in all temps/precip but switch to the trainer for group spins once it gets too cold.
Nice work, Todd. Thanks for putting this together -- We just might get a workout in together yet....
Add me is good to ride with people when is 40
Team, count us in! Training with friends makes a big difference in every single way :) Please add us to the list: email@example.com. Cheers, A&M
