Thanks to all who came out for our kick off breakfast last weekend...it was another great success and we had 2 new transplants (one kidney and one lung) join us! For those of you who missed the clinic, I'm going to (with Jon Baird's help) send out a video of a new exercise or workout each week through Team Snap.  We sent out the first one this week...a video of Terri Sullivan, our PT, showin...

Practice starts soon…and I’m really excited because I’ve already gotten physician release forms from FIVE new transplant recipients!   For those of you who’ve been on the team for quite a while…you better watch out because this incoming recruiting class is eager…hungry….and from what our scouting reports tell us…talented!   I have a feeling we’re going to be the team to watch this season!

Crazy to think that in less than 24 hours, we will be out on the race course!  It's amazing how much effort goes into making such a relatively short period of time meaningful and rewarding.  Think about it..the 16-week commitment...the early Saturday mornings...the steps counted...the stretching and strengthening...the working water stations...the finding time to train during the week...the Ga...

I hope you’re all up and ready for tomorrow’s workout…I’ve actually been looking forward to this one.  Leschi has been one of our routes since the very beginning, and it feels kind of like going home.  Since it’s part of the Seattle Half Marathon Course, we’ve always made it one of our core training locations.   I’ve spent a good many hours out at Leschi Park, driving along Lake Washington Blvd,...

Happy New Year! 2015 Seattle Marathon Recap Edition

Happy New Year!  2015 Seattle Marathon Recap Edition
Whew…!   I’m really not sure where December went...I fully intended to get our race recap out before the end of the year,  but perhaps sending this out at the beginning of the year is better since you'll all be working on your New Year’s Resolutions instead of focusing on holiday parties and shopping!?   It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a month since we last met…and now it’s a BRAND NEW...

Dawg Dash 2015!
We had a spectacular showing last weekend at the Dawg  Dash….I’m sure many of you wondered about the turnout when I sent out the list of 5 names last week.  It turns out everyone was just holding out to the last minute! We actually brought a delegation of 33 people to the Dash… Here are the stats… ·       We had  ELEVEN one-on-one Throwdowns..        Seven people invited someone not currentl...

What a fantastic day we had last Saturday!  We once again had a fabulous turnout with lots of good food (I think Shirley Schultz is looking for Marcia’s strata recipe…and I’m sure there are many people who’d love to get Jon Baird’s blueberry coffee cake recipe)…and our inaugural Fitness clinic was right on target!  Both of our speakers provided us with suggestions that will help refresh our warm...
