With February coming to an end, so has the USAT National Challenge. This was Sound Training and Racing’s first year participating in the challenge, and I think we did a FANTASTIC job! Overall as a team we were in close competition with team PRSFit, but we stepped up and took over 6th place by only 95 points! There were 24 teams in our division and to finish 6th in our first year is awesome! Congratulations to everyone who participated over the past three months! You Rock!
Running was the featured sport of February and we accumulated 1996.68 points. Our top five runners were:
Overall we’ve had some very impressive personal performances. We had six members with over 1000 points! G

Many of you joined Sound Training and Racing using our initial 3-month trial membership, which is now coming to an end. We’ve gone though a lot of changes over the past three months and we appreciate the patience and commitment you have all shown. We love the community that you have built with one another and that you are all reaching out to one another to coordinate workouts and share information.
We know we've been a bit quiet lately, but know that behind the scenes we are working to provide you with great training opportunities. We're working on our website which we hope to have live very soon; coordinating open water swim sessions; and in just a few weeks we'll be taking a Lifeguard Certification Course so that we can more easily access Evergreen Community Aquatic Center to host group swim workouts!
We hope that you’ll continue to be a part of the Sound Training and Racing team and will renew your memberships for the remainder of the year. If you initially signed up for the 3-month trial, you can renew your membership using this form: https://soundtrainingandracing.wufoo.com/forms/z1cgc75k1vt493q/
Sound Training and Racing is hosting an 8-week triathlon training series designed for beginner and experienced athletes who are looking to build confidence in the sport and are motivated by working out with a small group! Entries are limited so that we can ensure everyone gets personal attention! We promise that you’ll get to the starting line safely and be in shape to finish comfortably!
