Women's Half Marathon - WOW is all we can say.
Well we had about 35 gals that ran the race, several last minute registrations that pushed us into first place.
You gals were not only awesome, but were so supportive of each other. The feedback from the gals that met us for the first time was so appreciative and grateful to be a part of the team. Thank of being you and having fun. Check out Abby Leudecke and Preston Miller's Facebook for many, many great photos.
So they didn't give out an award the day of the race, but we did get first place.... Terry and I are still in shock, so now that we have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place win of the let three years - how about next year we just shoot for more fun and more great women getting together to lease NO WOMAN BEHIND.
Last Sunday - The best part of the Women's Half Marathon....................
was seeing the NWLB smiley faces.
You guys are awesome - thanks for being out on the course.
SPONSORS - YOU ROCKED OUR DAY- Thanks for the sponsorship - we have awesome shirts, and goodie bags that were actually good ;-)
A big thank you to Terry Dykshorn for suggesting we put a team together three years ago to participate in the Women's Half Marathon Event - it was a great idea and well worth the efforts. Thanks again to all

Are you ready to run?????
Come on out Friday, August 3rd to start your Half Marathon Training and bring a friend. We will start with five miles and gradually build up to the marathon in November. If you have a friend that isn't doing the marathon - bring them - all levels, all distances welcome.
Indian Bend and Scottsdale - Every Friday
CONGRATS to Jackie Z - Rode every day of the tour.
Here is a picture of Jackie in the Polka Dot Jersey - won all of them. Also all the lions that she won at the tour. Wiggins has nothing on JZ. Preston, Pat C and Tami were close, but no Podium Positions.
Last Sunday - Shocked at the turnout!!!
It rained the day before, it was hot and muggy - but didn't stop the NWLB gals. I will say when you see these pictures - we need Laura O, Jacque or Michelle - because the bike lane formation was not so good. It was a great ride though. Angela managed to stay upright coming down Shea when a nail did a number on her tire. We rescued her and NO WOMAN WAS LEFT BEHIND.

Lewis Elliot and Heather Godina - Great Team!!
Lewis Elliot has a passion for triathlon competition. When Lewis lost his mother to breast cancer in 2003, he decided to turn the sport he loves into a way to make a difference for women battling breast cancer. Since its launch in 2007, the
Tri for the Cure, has raised over $200,000. "I wanted to do something for breast cancer and a few of us got together and thought about a triathlon, and naturally, Komen came to mind," says Lewis. "And pretty quickly, we decided to make it an all-women's triathlon. And from the first year we had it in 2007 it has been a tremendous success. "
Hello Ladies, For those of you that don't know me, my name is Heather Godina. I have been riding with NWLB for about a year, although recently, I have been training with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team In Training (TNT) for my first ever Half Ironman ~ Soma in October! I am very excited!! Training is going well! I am getting stronger with every week's practices! In addition to training for Soma, I am also fundraising to put an end to Blood Cancer. As you may know, I am a cancer survivor. At the age of 29, I was diagnosed with stage 3 Breast Cancer. I underwent 6 months of chemotherapy followed by 7 1/2 weeks of radiation. I am well now, but on a mission. I am a firm believer that once a cure is found for once type of cancer, all the rest will follow right behind. This is where I need your help. Join the team in helping to find a cure for, not only Blood Cancer, but for ALL cancers by making a tax-deductible donation to "My Fundraising Page" at http://pages.teamintraining.org/az/somatri12/hgodina. Your donation will be going to such a great cause and every little bit helps! I appreciate your help in reaching my goal!! I look forward to riding with you again soon!
Thanks to everyone! Heather Godina

Last week we did Happy Valley - most of you were happy ;-)Nice job - we are keeping the miles up and the rides challenging. There is always a shorter less challenging route - so don't let it make you nervous - you may modify until it suits your needs.
FRESH NWLB FACESOK - so you all look too fresh - looks like while I was away - the mice took it easy with a 25 mile ride. While NO WOMAN WAS LEFT BEHIND - I think there were many going in different directions. The good news - you all made it back for coffee. So since you had a nice couple rest weeks, we will pick up the pace again and tackle Happy Valley loop this week.
