Strategies to Eat Better

More often than not, athletes ask me "What is
a well balanced diet? What should I be eating
to help me perform at my best?" They feel
overwhelmed by the seemingly endless list of
nutrition don'ts. Don't eat white sugar,
white bread, processed foods, fast foods,
french fries, soda, salt, trans fats, butter,
eggs, red meat... You've heard it all, I'm sure.

|DFW Fit AR Spring Season Starts 3/25
Online registration for our sister city's
spring season has begun, and we need your
help spreading the word. I
know a lot of you have north Texas roots, so
let's see if we can draw on those to help
ensure that DFW Fit AR has a successful 2008!
Every member is entitled to two guest
passes for this season. Each guest pass is
good for one person, one practice (mock race
excluded). This is a great opportunity to
invite one (or two) of your friends to come
and play with us one evening (or one
Saturday). All your guest has to do is fill
out the pass and bring it with them to the
practice of their choice. Just make sure to
turn it in to one of the Coaches or
Organizers before practice starts.
We hope to see a lot of new faces out there
