WELCOME 2017!

A new year has begun!  For some of us, it means a new age group!  For many of us, it means making New Year's resolutions.

Just a few guidelines from our coaches.

Set realistic goals.   "Add an extra run workout to my week."

Simple is better.  "Travel to an event in the Okanagan."

Make your goals measureable.

Share your goals, your teammates can support you.
