Yesterday morning I announced Team Tough Chik and I am super excited with the interest!  Team Tough Chik was conceived when Angela contacted me a few months ago.  She asked if I had ever thought of starting a team and in fact I had…a lot.

As you know, I LOVE to ride and now that I had found triathlons, I am loving to race.  In the cycling world and in the tri world somewhat, being on a team is pretty popular.  When you race a bike, you almost have to be on a team.  I never joined a team fearing that I wouldn’t be good enough, fast enough or life/injury would get in the way and I wouldn’t be able to make the commitments outlined by the team.  There have also been times where there wasn’t a team that fit my skill level in my geographic area.  Our answer is TEAM TOUGH CHIK.

Our team is not sport specific or even geographically based.  We wanted to create a team for every woman who wants to race in any capacity.  From Mud Run to Ironmans, 5Ks to Century fun rides, no race is to big or to small!  For the first year, 2012, the team will be pretty basic, but our dream (and plan) is for Team Tough Chik to be the next Luna Chix!  And we are Toughies, so you know if we put our mind to it…we will do it!

No one is turned away (unless you are a dude, then sorry…this isn’t the team for you).  We have a very basic application process, it is still in the works, but we are open to pretty much everyone.  We will have several levels so you can be as involved as you want.  The membership levels along with the team cycling kit, tri kit and running singlet will be posted within the next few weeks.  We are really excited about TEAM TOUGH CHIK and it looks like a lot of you are pretty stoked about it too!

If you haven’t already, email us you name, location and sport of choice to and we will keep you in the loop!
