We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are blessed to have your support and look forward to training with everyone over the coming months!
On that note.... The USAT National Challenge begins on Monday!!! We're about to update everyone's account on our roster so that you'll be able to enter your own mileage. You will receive an automated email from "registration" that welcomes you to the challenge. It will provide you with a link to the website to log your miles, your username (which is the email address that you gave us when you registered with Sound Training and Racing), and password. The password is automatically generated, fairly easy to remember, and cannot be changed. If you forget your password, let us know and we'll look it up for you.
We are also going to create a TrainingPeaks account for each member of the team. If you already have an account, please let us know so that we don't create duplicates. Why are we giving you a TrainingPeaks account?
* To share all group workouts with you on a nice calendar
* The calendar can be synced with Google Calendar, Outlook, and Apple's iCal.
* Daily reminder emails of upcoming group workouts (optional)
* Track your progress, and history
* Nice web interface and mobile apps
* Lots of training data in case you decide you want personal coaching in the future
** We will record everyone's miles from the group workouts **
** You are responsible for logging miles from your own training sessions **
