TEAM WILD!!!

Team-WILDOn top of everything else I’ve decided to do this year (more on this in a later post) I am officially one of the triathlon coaches at Team Wild Camp this year!  I cannot wait to coach and mentor other athletes who have diabetes.  The first step is that they have already signed up for camp but the real test will be to keep them motivated and make them believe that they can do whatever they put their mind to!  It is going to be fantastic.  Not only that, I get to spend 5 days in beautiful Boulder, Colorado! In case you didn’t know, the founder of team wild, Mari Ruddy, also started the red rider program for the Tour de Cure.  Where cyclists with diabetes wear a red rider jersey in order to be noticed in the crowd.  For one day you get to feel special.

We have been busy putting together agenda’s and training plans for cyclists, runners, walkers and triathletes.  There is so much to learn!

One cool thing that Team Wild has done is put out this cycling book written by Team Wild coach and  Olympic cyclist Nicole Freedman. To get your copy just click the link: http://wildcyclebook.com.  Its totally free!

  1. Yay! This is great news – and you’re a perfect fit. Team WILD is responsible for helping me with a training program that got me (ME!) through a 100-mile bike ride last spring. If they can get me through it, they can get anyone through it (I mean that!).

    And with you on their team for tri folk? Watch out world! Here they come! 🙂
