So Long, Winter 2016 – Thanks for the Memories!

Team EnVision enjoyed an active off-season!

 

In December, Melissa led us on a running tour of Boston’s holiday lights. Our route took us through downtown, Boston Common, Boston Public Garden, the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, Faneuil Hall, and Christopher Columbus Park. We capped off the evening with dinner and drinks.

Indoor swim practices began in January with new Team EnVision swim coach, Becky Paige. We will swim indoors until May when we will move to Walden Pond for open water swimming. Current and prospective members are welcome to drop in for a swim practice:

In January, Grace Bicycles hosted Team EnVision for a CompuTrainer ride of the Ironman Lake Placid course. Thanks, Cathy, for organizing the event. We had a great time riding!

Several Team EnVision members participated in the Marathon Sports Winter Warrior Challenge. We ran (or walked) at least one mile outdoors every day in January!

In March, Team EnVision gathered for a race planning session. We chatted about races and got started on planning the new season while enjoying some wine, cheese, and good company!

 

While Winter 2016 was a lot of fun, Team EnVision is excited about the arrival of spring and outdoor training!
