Race-Mania Summit and Expo – March 25, 2018
Despite the cold, gloomy March weather on Sunday, the ladies of Team Envision were out in force at this year’s Race-Mania Expo. Zabeth, Sandra, and Liz arrived early to set up a cheery, welcoming booth to provide a space for team members to drop their belongings, have a snack, and chill, as well as talk to prospective new members about Team Envision. The BU Rec center was full of promoters hawking their wares and providing information about upcoming races. Great lectures on topics of interest to endurance athletes such as nutrition, injury prevention, and performance improvement were on going. Several team members attended clinics such as Swim Smooth, Yoga for Triathletes, Chi Running, and cycling time trials; while other members took advantage of free massage, acupuncture, cupping, and Normatec boots.
In addition to having a great time and getting lots of swag, we were also able to talk to many women about the benefits of joining a triathlon team. About two dozen women signed up for more information and took a coupon good for a free drop in ride, swim, or clinic.
This was my first time at the event and I got a lot more out of it than I expected. I’m not much of a shopper, but there was a good selection of merchandise for triathletes, including used wetsuits at a great low price. The lectures and clinics got great reviews by those who attended, and it was great to see other triathletes and potential triathletes get excited about Team Envision. Definitely a must-do for next year.
Heading to Race-Mania? Check your virtual goody bag for a Team Envision registration discount. Don’t forget to stop by the red Team Envision tent to say hi and receive an additional coupon. See you there!
Greetings from Team EnVision Director, Anika
Every publication, site, critic & anyone with an opinion is dropping their “best of” lists right now. Hopefully “being a member of Team EnVision” is on yours & you’re looking forward to another great year – in among the shopping, partying, snow shoveling, last school days before break & all the other fun chaos of the season.
Good news – unlike waiting on a delivery from Amazon, you can sign up for 2017 team membership RIGHT NOW!!
The online registration site is up & ready:
After many wonderful years at Brookline High, we will be swimming in a new location this year: Draper Pool, 5275 Washington St. West Roxbury.
Swim sessions will begin Wednesday, January 11, 7:30 – 8:30pm. We’ll continue for 20 weeks, with May 24 as the final swim date.
We will have 2 lanes at Draper, so we’re going to see how things go over the first month or so and then assess whether we’ll be able to offer a drop-in option. Therefore, if you want to guarantee a spot in the pool, be sure to register for a swim membership.
I’m so thrilled that Becky Paige will be back with us this coming season as our swim coach. She’ll be at 10 of the 20 sessions, aiming for twice a month. We’re still working out when she’ll be on deck in January, given her work schedule is still evolving.
Becky will be creating workouts for all 20 swim weeks & all TE members will receive them.
UPDATE: Swim membership is sold out for the 2017 season. Basic membership is still available.
Questions about membership? Feel free to contact me or Naomi, our new (but not really) Membership Coordinator.
Lastly, a HUGE, enthusiastic & heart-felt “thank you” to Edith for her tenure as our Membership Coordinator. Like many of you, I first encountered her friendliness & welcoming spirit via email as she responded to my initial inquiry about TE. I’m so glad I took her encouragement to come meet the team – without Edith, I certainly wouldn’t have found this great group & probably wouldn’t be a triathlete. I’m delighted for her that her new job is so rewarding & interesting, even if it means she’s opted to step away from a Coordinator role. Thank you for all you’ve done, Edith & I look forward to riding with you again this spring!

And while you’re at it don’t forget to add your name to our email list here on our website and be notified of all new posts…don’t miss a thing that happens with TE!
Membership is now open for the 2012 season…come join us for another season of great swimming, biking, running, and of course, FUN!
