2014 Team Revolution REPORT
The season is officially started and we are excited to see how far we can push ourselves in our fitness journey. This year at Kickoff, our turnout was smaller than usual due to scheduling conflicts, but it was a fun time nonetheless. Athletes signed up for the different membership options : First Team, Second Team, First Team Couple, Second Team Couple, Third Team, Family Team, and Revolution Kids. (For the full description of the membership options go HERE.)
First team athletes are committing to a more aggressive training regime while Third Team athletes commit to training a minimum of two times a week. But all athletes share a common fitness goal of training for at least one race and crossing that finish line strong.
As a mandate, all of our athletes are dedicated to racing for missions and most donate a minimum of $200 per year to our team owner, Bonders, which is a progressive Adventist young professionals ministry based in Michigan.
Bonders plans mission trips and other mission projects with these funds – its current one being a team trip to the Amazon in Brazil this November. Our team consists of athletes who are just kick-starting their lifestyle of fitness and others who are veterans in endurance sports and their goals push the apparent limit of the human potential. It’s awesome.
At the Kickoff, we distributed welcome packets, gave team updates, announced our season events, wrote out our season goals, took uniform sizes, took legit pictures at the TR Photo Booth (- thanks, David!), and of course, did some major carb-loading to prepare for a season of training.
For our athletes who weren’t able to come, your welcome packets with all the info and some goodies will be mailed to you this week! You’ll be hearing from us soon. Following the event, we went on a group run along the River Trail with whoever was able to join us. It was a nice time to connect with our athletes, talk training and racing, and have fun together. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone crush their personal fitness goals, racing for missions, and representing our mission team to the world!
