December Ladies Only bikeride Calendar 2010

Good Morning Ladies
Wow what a great November. Stefanie, Linnea, Liz and Tami completed the Tour de Tucson. Carolyn and Kristen did there first Tri. Sara L and Teena ran in the Alflac Iron Girl and ironman run held at Tempe Town Lake. Patti K and Lynne You Are A Ironman. Congratulation Ladies for a job well done. I would like to say Thank you for all your support. Bike station 3 ROCKED. This ranked right up there with the Swim start very exciting to ride through, I will remember this always.
This month we have some pretty good rides set up. The weather has turned cold so please dress for it. If you haven't purchased winter cycling gear please do. you will need long finger gloves, long sleeve under shirt for cycling(not cotton it will hold water and make you colder) long sleeve over shirt, a cycling jacket(not to bulky) a beanie cap or/and ear warmers, Last but not forgotten Arm and leg warmers.
You will still have start drinking plenty of water and eat a good meal at least two days out. I know you are asking why? answer, you still perspire in the cold weather as you did when it was hot, it not noticeable but the same. Believe me it feels the same ( in the cold as in the heat) when you cramp out or bonk, cause by lack of fluids and nutrition. You don't have to prep your water bottles the night before.
Before I forget we have 3 anniversaries this month:
Deb O - 1 yr, her goal was to ride 100 miles in the MS 150 2010 and do a ride from her house : Goals Achieved
Natalie - 1 yr, she just set a goal to ride 100 miles in the MS 150 2011, I will keep you posted
Julie B - 1 yr, she started riding on the coldest day in Dec. her goal was to ride in the Tour de Scottsdale: Goal Achieved
she moved to flagstaff for the summer and her son set 3 goals for her, 1st to ride to the footprints on lake mary rd,
2nd to ride to the lookout and when she achieved both of these goals, he added miles her new goal, 3rd to ride 70 miles... that's right she achieved that goal.

LaVerne's Ironman Update by Julie Boles

Today, many of us were privileged to watch an outstanding woman take on the challenge of a lifetime. LaVerne's daughters and friends cheered her from the sidelines, taking pictures and sending her all the well wishes they could. Unfortunately, the windy, chilly and wet day was not the friend she needed it to be and with an hour left in Ironman, LaVerne's final split time kept her from the goal she had sought for many months. With her head held high, and the twinkle still in her eye she said she couldn't go home yet because she knew someone who was still in the race. She insisted on staying so she could support them to the finish line.

I know Ironman receive a medal, but as no surprise to all of you, LaVerne has a heart of gold and the never-ending spirit of a champion.

We couldn't be more proud of you LaVerne.

A Note from Charlie

Hey Everyone
I hope you all had a great Halloween. This Sunday will be a difficult ride in the Awahtukee area starting from The Nosh bagel shop(S.E. corner of 48th St. & Warner)doing all of the hills in the area both up & down. The start time has moved up to 7:00 a.m. & no we don`t set our clocks back. We may split into 2 groups depending on who shows up. If anyone wants to come out to ride & not do as many hills I can direct them around the harder ones & still be able to regroup in the area. Come on out & enjoy. See you then.
