Announcement: Mascot

So, we tried very hard to confirm a super special mascot for the 2012 season.  Unfortunately, we ran into several problems with our choices...

The Llama:  did you know that they spit?  When they're mad...when they're happy...when they're hungry...whenever they feel like it...spit, spit, spit.  And, let me tell you, it's not pleasant.

The Komodo Dragon: he was a good choice at first, but then his foul mouth got going.  Geez...the bacteria-laden saliva is one thing, but the language...even for us, he was a bit too much.

The Bunny Rabbits: quick, perky, and sweet - we thought that this choice was perfect.  Except that the old saying is true...they were always too busy trying to make us "do it like rabbits."  Again, with your minds in the gutters - they kept trying to make us turn vegan!

The Lemmings:  We had hoped that having a solid group of followers would be ideal, and it was good...until they started throwing themselves off of cliffs.

The Monkeys:  you don't want to know what the monkeys were throwing...

So, we're left still hoping to fill the mascot opening...if anyone wishes to apply for the job, we welcome your resume...unless you're a llama.

Next update: new teammates!!

Upcoming Announcement Goodies!!

Hey All...

Just a little "teaser" post to let you know that there are some big announcements on the horizon.  These may or may not be related to the following:

- a new team name
- the fact that one of our number invented a time machine so that we all can start up our love for cycling at a younger age and therefore, arrive in 2012 faster than ever before
- new team members
- a new team mascot, which may or may not be friendly to strangers
- the fact that the team has invested in a sushi restaurant - why keep paying others, when we can cash in on our food addiction?
- new and returning sponsors
- new strategies for kicking butt (yeah, if we'd post those on our blog!!)
- a new calendar of race events
- the fact that the team has recently acquired several very small make model airplanes, of course....

So...keep your eyes peeled for exciting news on the horizon!!

The CAWES team wants to send a strong shout out of GOOD LUCK to our good friend (and uber-diva) Chris Kaag as he takes on the challenge of the New York Marathon!  

Along with fellow athlete, Mike King, Chris will head up to New York City this weekend and compete in his first marathon.  You can find Chris out riding his hand cycle on the road and trails, but this is his first major competition on a push-rim!  He's done a few races and a TON of training over the past several months to get ready for the event and we know that he's going to KILL it!!  

So, if you're in NYC on November sure to give a super sturdy shout out to Chris and the other IM Able team athletes as they Get Up and Move!!
