We are all looking forward to November 14th for our End-Of-Season Party. Make sure you reply to the invitation you receive in the mail to let us know you are attending.

In 15 consecutive full triathlon seasons Doug has completed over 130 triathlons, with 44 overall wins, 5 consecutive National Championships, and zero DNFs. He has missed no starts due to either sickness or injury and at 43 still records PR times in all three sports.

An amazing profile!  We should learn a lot from or his insights into the sport and training philosophy.
