Our team’s virtual activities offer another way to engage with each other and boost all of our spirits. We would love to see you participate in any of the following:
- “Tuesday Q&A with Coaches!” Come participate in a live Q&A between DWRT Coaches and guest hosts. In our first meeting, Coach Emmi will chat with Patricia Tirona on: “Injury prevention and motivation: how to stay positive and healthy without races!” We’ll take live questions from participants, so come prepared. When: Tuesday (5/5) @ 8pm on IG Live. RSVP on Meetup here: https://www.meetup.com/dashing-whippets/events/270432540/ and submit questions in advance here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1nxMAJd3CWE_L7pn_rA8SZ983aKuUwGLTNkMqe-NHRqI/
- The Committee will be sharing a [brief] survey on how virtual activities are going. Tell us what you’re enjoying and we’ll make sure to double down (and also how we can improve). Survey here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1CTvbc7hU1U5i_pHtXe9T5Y5I5rsgh4foDb-gUaqxRlY/edit

The health of our members is of utmost importance, so we encourage you all to embrace the #runsolo initiative and stay safe! As a reminder, NY residents are now required to have protective face-wear if they cannot reliably social distance. Be especially certain not to run or post pictures of yourself running on social media without a facemask while wearing a team singlet!
