Use caution on course

As athletes transition their training up to Cascade Shores and gear up the workouts, please use caution. From miles of well-traveled roadways to a busy summertime lake, it's best to be mindful while riding, running or swimming. Thank you Heather for bringing our attention to an incident that occurred Friday, and for the tip to pay attention while training in the evening.

Please continue to be safe out there!

Have you trained on the course yet?

Now that August is here, training activity has picked up at Scotts Flat Lake. It's exciting to see women (and oftentimes their male supporters/training partners) swimming in the lake, riding Pasquale Rd and running the course. Nearly every morning now there are women up at the lake for a swim and/or ride. If you haven't gotten out there yet, never fear, there is still plenty of time.

Bike Clinic Saturday

Join Connie Strawser from the Tour of Nevada City for our Bike Clinic at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. This clinic is for both new and returning athletes.

For sports nutrition, pay attention to the basics

EDITORS NOTE: The BSM Triathlon Committee would like to welcome home Elizabeth Legg. She was the first recipient of the BSM Memorial Scholarship and has returned to the community to practice as a nutritionist at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. Elizabeth will also provide valuable information about nutrition for all of you in training. This is the first of many posts from her. Enjoy!

Sports nutrition can get very complex and specific, but attention to the basics will take you far.
