TYR Wetsuit Demo Day

Are you in the market for new wetsuit?  Or does your suit need an upgrade?

Sunday, April 9th is your opportunity to try the 2017 TYR Wetsuit collection on….AND go for a swim in them!

That’s right, we are taking over the Dorchester Family YMCA pool along with our representative from TYR, and letting you try the suits on and test them out.  While we had hoped that the Choptank River would be warm enough for a quick dip, it doesn’t look like the water temperatures will be safe for us to demo the suits outside.  We will have use of the pool from 11:00am – 2:00pm.  Light refreshments will be offered under the TriCycle and Run tent just outside the pool in the YMCA parking lot.  We will also bring some of our closeout swimskins and triathlon apparel for you to shop!

If you decide that one of the TYR suits is for you, Laura will be taking orders and payments right there at the YMCA.  Shipping options can be discussed in detail with her at the event.  SPECIAL DISCOUNTS offered for all participants in the event!

There is also an opportunity to join some of the local athletes in the area for a quick bike ride before the demo event begins.  For further details about the group ride or the demo event, please feel free to email Laura at info@tricycleandrun.com.

We are so excited to bring this event to you, our local triathlon community!  Stay tuned for more similar events in the near future!

Happy birthday to us… Here are the presents for YOU!!!!

we-are-5-5k

Wow what a weekend! Just 5 years ago we opened our doors to our community of St Michaels with the dream of being a central point for area (and visiting) athletes to have to get the equipment that they needed. Our hope was that we would grow the number of people in the area who were concerned about their fitness and help anyone who needed guidance, achieve their goals. From our monthly Free 5ks to our group bike rides and runs, to our ladies’ night clinics (starting back up for the winter), we try to give back when we can. We hope that we have been able to help you in your journey!!

So this weekend is always a big deal for us. Not only is it the shop’s anniversary but Laura’s birthday is coming up (on the 12th) and the live streaming broadcast for the Ironman World Championships from Kona, Hawaii, are always played, bringing in lots of local triathletes. We all sat around last night and watched OUR Superbowl play out on live TV. This was after we were able to help out one of our community partners, the Talbot Humane Society, by timing their Bark In The Park 5k, on Saturday morning!! (RESULTS CAN BE FOUND AT https://www.webscorer.com/race?raceid=83142)

Sunday morning we were going to have our 5th anniversary FREE 5k where participants brought gloves, hats and scarves for us to give to our local schools to distribute. The winds were howling, the rain was pouring, and yet 5 brave souls came out and battled the weather! Congratulations to Shawn, Steven, Grizzly, Todd and Mitch for coming out.   YOUR race results can be found at https://www.webscorer.com/race?raceid=83285

As the day went on, we got a surprise visit from one of our friends, Senator Addie Eckardt, who brought us a State Citation for being involved with the community for the past 5 years. We were very excited about that and will proudly display this. We don’t do what we do for the praise, but it’s still pretty cool to see it. 😉
