Below is a message from one of our Novices, Novice Sister Fancy Pants:
Have you ever thought of running a triathlon but never knew where to start?
Have you ever wanted to challenge yourself physically but didn’t want to do it by yourself?
Have you ever wanted to be part of a team that trained together, provided support for each other and helped raise funds for charity?
If you’ve said yes to any or all of the above, we are here to help. We are Rebecca and Tee, certified Personal Trainers and Yoga instructors with over 5 triathlons, 20 half marathons and marathons completed between us. We are running a “Your First Triathlon Adventure with Team SOPI” for people who want to train for a triathlon in a fun and supporting environment. The charity we are supporting is the Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. They are a non-profit organisation of volunteers that provide funds and support for other causes such as LGBT, AIDS/HIV, Homeless shelters and Women’s support to name a few.
Regardless of your fitness level, regardless of this is your first, second or 15th triathlon, if you want to be part of something fun and challenging, then you are welcome to join us.
We will provide you with a 15-week training program starting May 30, 2016 up to race day September 5, 2016. Some of the training you do on your own and some as a group. During the 15 weeks, we will provide “specialty clinics” on how to change a bike tire, swimming tips, cross training, stretching, nutrition and motivation. And we are there every step of the way.
There are costs associated with the event itself such as registration and purchasing of needed racing gear. However, there is no fee to join our group. As we are raising money for the Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a $50 donation would be greatly appreciated.
We are available for any questions or if you wanted to speak to us directly for more information.
