No workout last Thursday evening because ~70(!) teammates and family members were gathered at Maria Bonita restaurant to celebrate the end of a successful tri season and Shirley's completion of her 50 states marathon quest. Luckily the weather was perfect so we could be seated in the outdoor section of the restaurant and have it all to ourselves.

As our food was being prepared Coach Jacklynn led us through some warm-up giveaways. The first round of prizes were raffled off to the Triathletes of the Month who were present. The second round of prizes to raffled off to all in attendance. Then some surprise gifts were presented to both Shirley and Coach J. Who were both caught off guard but delighted to receive them!

After the main course, it was time for dessert. YUM! Then all that was left to take home were some great memories with friends and some bookmarks on the tables with a special message (click on image below to enlarge):

In my world, the water is cold, the wind is hard, and the road never ends.

In my world, there are no losers, only competitors still on their way, and spectators waiting to be inspired.

In my world, victory is not weighed in gold, but in determination and courage.

In my world, there are no boundries, no limits, there is no end. Every day is the last day of my life, and the first.

In my world, the word "can't" does not exist, and nothing is impossible.

Thank you, everyone, for a great tri season. We hope you will continue to train with us through the winter as part of the running club!
