Pushing Yourself & Someone Else, Why Not?

Summer has quickly gotten away from us & Athletes in Tandem couldn’t be any busier with races! There have been many new athletes participating this summer with AiT & all are having the time of  their lives. Postings will begin to pick back up again on the blog here as our schedules allow. But for now we wanted to share a few opportunities for you to participate in as an athlete to help further AiT’s mission, showcase a few photos from events this summer & direct you to a few newspaper articles & other media that has featured AiT.

If you have any questions regarding participation please contact dennis at athletesintandem.org. Maybe you have other questions & are looking for some direction or have photos & an experience with AiT we could post here, contact me at stephanieprandall at yahoo.com. Looking forward to hearing from you~

Way to go Jeremie, Susan & Steve!
