Moms In Motion Triathlon Team Training to Begin June 8

Now in its 14th year, Moms In Motion takes women of varying fitness levels to new heights through their triathlon training team, set to begin on Saturday, June 8 and culminating 11 weeks later on Sunday, Aug. 24 with the Women’s Santa Barbara Sprint Triathlon (500-yard ocean swim, six-mile bike and two-mile run).

The training will focus on developing skill, technique, endurance and speed in each sport while also learning how to make speedy transitions. Fitness, friendship, philanthropy and educational opportunities are woven into each of their practices.

Whether new to the sport or returning for the 14th year, Moms in Motion encourages all women to carve out time for themselves to be healthy and fit. Coach Ernesto Paredes, founder Jamie Allison and cycling/swimming coach Whitney Bruice will lead the 2013 team.

“Moms In Motion provides a unique outlet for moms and all women to carve out time each week to focus on their own physical, social and philanthropic needs,” Allison said. “We’re going a mile a minute and can easily feel overwhelmed with the juggling act, especially if our needs are put on the back burner. As challenging as it may seem to schedule in one more thing, we’ve heard over and over from our members how making time for themselves increases overall happiness. They have more energy, more patience, better sleep and increased confidence.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
