This morning I got the following invite from my tri club, the Silicon Valley Triathlon Club. Here is a perfect example of two people telling theselves "No Limits"
Our monthly club meeting is coming up next Monday night (November 10), at 7pm at Sports Basement Sunnyvale. Our featured speakers this month, Christine Thornbern and Ted Huang, are just back from the Beijing Olympics, where Christine raced for the US womens cycling team. Christine is a world class time trialist, (shes also an ex-collegiate runner -- should we see if she can swim?) who, among her many other racing accomplishments, also placed 4th at the 2004 Athen Olympics --> and to top it off she is a medical doctor specializing in rheumatology!! Do you feel inadequate yet -- read on! Her husband Ted has been a respected force on the Bay Area cycling racing scene for the past 15 years - coming in 12th overall in the San Francisco Grand Prix in 2003 - and has been to two previous Olympics in the sport of windsurfing (because cycling is his "other" sport!). Come and see their pictures from Beijing and hear their stories about racing at the worlds highest level.
