    DST, Daylight Saving Time, or as we call it here "daylight savings time"... some countries (think Texas) even call it "summer time".  Personally I like to call it "The Light Season" since we now have a decent amount of time to get some training in after work during the week.  The Light Season this year is from March 11th to November 4th.  Coincidentally or not, our training season falls right smack dab in between these two dates.  With the Waco Triathlon Training plan kicking off on April 22nd and the second phase of it ending with Ironman Waco 70.3 on October 28th we've got a light season booked full of fun athletic activities!  So when is a good time to get involved? NOW!  Pre-Season weekday OWS's (open water swims) and rides have begun and will continue until we start the training plan.  Lake Waco is still a wee bit chilly (60-65 degrees) so dust off the wetsuit and bring it with, you'll need it.  Also the spring winds make for great choppy surf training for all you going to Galveston for Ironman Texas 70.3!  The rides are still on the shorter side at 20 miles until we get into some longer days, but that'll be perfect for you to learn how to balance again after spending all winter on the trainer!  

    April 22nd kicks off the first phase of the Waco Triathlon Training Program with the "couch to sprint tri" beginner Sprint training plan and "next level up" Olympic training plan.  The plan is a comprehensive 12 week training plan chocked full of clinics and special training days to get you ready for either distance you choose.  Phase 2 is the Ironman Waco 70.3 training plan delivering an equal amount of content with an emphasis on distance training and long course prep.  If you're eyeing Phase 2 you'll want to start with the "next level up" training plan because it's executed with the 70.3 in mind!

    Regardless of what you have in mind to do this year, if you're wondering when is a good time to start, you know the answer to that just as well as I do... Now!

    Welcome to 2018!  Inspirational message coming soon... it’s going to be amazing!  It’s going to make you want to get involved in what we have going on this year.  It’s going to tell you about the role we’ll be playing at our Texas state Ironman Races, whether it be Ironman Texas in The Woodlands, Ironman 70.3 Texas in Galveston, or the recently announced Ironman 70.3 Waco that we’re most excited for!!!  It’s going to tell you about the 2nd annual Waco Sharkfest swim race that’s held on our very own Brazos River!  It’s going to tell you about the wildly successful Waco Triathlon Training Program and how it’ll be revamped to get you ready for not only TriWaco’s sprint and olympic distance races but expanded to include a push to Waco’s new 70.3!

    I can’t talk up this inspirational message enough!  It’s going to tell you how we’re going to come together to push ourselves, and each other, to succeed in ways we never thought imaginable!  It’s going to tell you how you’ll make amazing friends swimming in the deep end of the Brazos and cycling out on a hot Texas farm to market road!  It’s going to tell you how together we’ll reach a level of athleticism we only thought was reserved for the elite individual.  It’s going to tell you about how the hours, days, weeks and months of training will all be worth it for the second you cross the finish line at that race you worked so hard to be ready for!  And it’s going to tell you about how we’re going to take the time to give back to Wacotown through acts of service and charity, whether it be feeding the homeless or cleaning up the banks of the Brazos!

    Are you excited to hear this inspirational message?  I think you already know what it’s going to say.  The real question you should ask yourself is, “Will I be the one who delivers this message?”  Yes you are!  Be the inspirational message!  Be the Waco Triathlon Club!
