WHERE IS LITTLE MUNRO AND MIGHTY MATIAS?
Scott, do not tell me that the life of Actuary science is so encompassing that all you do is work, drink beer and watch re-runs of the Steeler's glory years?
Matias, come back to running. The tri stuff is, well, um, ya know...........
Though there are no by-laws or rules and regs for this club/team we are playing with, the absolute must, in order to get some goodies out of the deal, which, includes free entries into races, is that YOU MUST show up to at least 80% of the group runs or one per week. This can weekend or weekday workouts. Its more about team spirit and developing a cohesive and responsive group than simply being a speed demon and showing up once and a while to race for us. There is always the exception such as for injury or personal matters of utmost importance. Other than that, regular face time counts for much.
The context for this message is that I have received lots of requests to get into races for free, etc. This is fine. However, there needs to be some bar set for this. Simple and reasonable request is to show up to the group runs, strive to get stronger and be a positive force.
