Initial Training Schedule Information to RSVP

I created a Meet.Up group on for the Iron Girl Racers! See the home page here:

This is where you can sign up to jog, do jog/walks and biking to train for the event. Of course, once people meet they can schedule anytime that is convenient for them with other members of the group!

Iron Girl Race Invitation!

About 6.5 years ago I did the Iron Girl Race/ My goal was to complete the race and I did. I am happy to have signed up to do it again, this September!

Do you have a New Years Resolution to get into shape? This race could be the goal that gets you there.
The Iron Girl Race is a 2 mile run, 22 mile bike and 2 mile run. Join me to train and/or do the race.

The race is in Bloomington. Its at Normondale Lake park at 7:30 am. I would like to find a small group of women who want to train weekly, either in person and/or via Blog support.

Amenities at the race include: a post-race Breakfast Café, performance shirts sized for women, professional timing, personalized race bibs, new custom finisher medals specific to the event, Iron Girl jewelry age group awards, on-demand results station, post-race giveaways and much more. It costs $95 to register.

Here is the website for the race:

If you would like to train with me in person, I will likely train every Friday and Sunday. One day doing the two mile run (very casual) outside or coaching each other inside on my treadmill. The other day I will do some cycling, each week doing a longer cycling to get up to the 22 miles. I can have a second indoor bike at my house or you can bring your bike and your bike trainer (you can buy a bike trainer for as low as $90).

When spring arrives, we would obviously jog outside, meeting at the lakes or a nearby park. I am starting my training one week from tomorrow (Jan. 11th).

Join the blog to support this group or better yet, join the group!
