Let's ignore the government (since they ignore us!) for today and focus on something AWESOME:

Registration for TEAM TOUGH CHIK opens today!!!!!!!!!

Ladies, this is practically a national holiday. Seriously. If you've ever wanted to be part of a team that will support you through your athletic endeavors (no matter if it's Couch to 5K or tackling Ironman Kona!), THIS IS THE TEAM FOR YOU.

From the website:

Tough Chik is not just a clothing line, it is an outlook on life. All women have a personal story that makes them tough and our goal is to celebrate Tough Chik triumphs in a creative way. We want to revolutionize women's performance apparel by linking it to something more profound than just pretty designs.
As Team Tough Chik, we are designers, marketers, runners and cyclists that feed on creative expression. We are proud of our shin splints, scars and pedicures. We strive to support women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds who celebrate life and seek to conquer its challenges and adventures.

From my own experience:

These ladies have helped me when I had training questions about my first marathon. They helped me know what to look for when I went to go pick out my first bicycle. They helped me through two surgeries in the past year and were with me when I was frustrated, and still with me when I reveled in the victory of being healthy and running again.

These ladies are my sisters, aunts, mothers, even grandmothers. No matter your age, all active women are welcome. Together, we are a family. It's the kind of support network that all women should be for each other and is sadly lacking in the world. But not on TEAM TOUGH CHIK!!!!

I don't know what else to call these women except friends and family. It's simply amazing. 

Registration is easy, and affordable (even for those of us affected by the shutdown): running singlets (which work great for other sports, too!) start at $27. That's less than most 5Ks cost, and gives you a whole year of membership to this wonderful team!

I don't get anything if you join, either. Wait, that's a lie- I GET MORE SISTERS/FRIENDS/TEAMMATES?FELLOW TOUGH CHIKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what are you waiting for? Come join the team!!

Seriously. I am not being sponsored, coerced, or bribed by Team Tough Chik for this post. All the gushing is my own. I love these ladies more than they know. Shannon and Angela have created a true team for active women. Thank you to our Fearless Leaders!
