stone finish

On May 1, 2016, The Liberty University Online Academy East Coast Triathlon Festival returns to the Innsbrook Office Park in Glen Allen, VA.  Following the Cycling World Championships, The East Coast Triathlon Festival again proves Richmond to be a sought after endurance event destination.  Now in its fourth year, the triathlon festival has been selected for one of three US races on the International Triathlon Union world-wide elite series and will therefore host some of the top professional triathletes in the world.  In addition, the festival will host a junior elite race that is 1 of 4 in the country as well as amateur adult and kid’s triathlons.

“We are very excited to add the CAMTRI (ITU) Sprint American Cup and once again welcome top level professional athletes to Richmond,” said Michael Harlow, founder and head coach, Endorphin Fitness.  “All in one day, local athletes will be able to race on the same course as the best in the world as well as watch these amazing athletes compete – there is nothing like this in the country.”

Endorphin Fitness anticipates 800 professional athletes, elite junior athletes, amateur kids, and adults will compete across four separate race formats.  The races include a kid’s fun race for ages seven to 15; a super sprint distance for amateur youth and adults; the Junior Elite Cup; and the headline CAMTRI Sprint American Cup professional event.  The Junior Elite race will draw the top 13 to 19 year olds from across the country and the CAMTRI Cup will draw the top professional athletes from across the world.  Endorphin Fitness expects more than 1,500 athletes and spectators present to either compete or watch the day’s activities.

“The day’s events are not just about elite 13931869248_68d6bf5c7f_bcompetition.  Endorphin Fitness encourages an active community through triathlon.  We were very purposeful in structuring the race distances to enable inclusion, from beginners to elite athletes,” Michael Harlow, founder and head coach, Endorphin Fitness, stated.

Endorphin Fitness, which specializes in triathlon coaching, personal training, and bicycle retail is dedicated to a vision of using fitness, swim, bike, and run for the health and well-being of children and adults.  A major focus of Endorphin Fitness is the youth community.  The East Coast Triathlon Festival is one of three races produced by Endorphin Fitness which all have a youth focus.  Endorphin Fitness’ goal is to go beyond traditional sports and create opportunities using endurance activities to get kids active, fight childhood obesity and encourage self-esteem and self-motivation.

Protect Your Packages

porch_pirateAlmost everyone shops online these days and you probably are waiting on a package to be delivered right now.  Unfortunately, thieves are waiting for these packages to be left all alone on your front porch too.  As soon as the delivery truck pulls off, they steal the packages.  Please be aware that the major delivery companies allow for package tracking.  The Henrico Police encourage you to track your package and know when it is delivered.  Ask a responsible neighbor to collect the package for you or have them move it to a hidden location at your house.  Please also consider having your package delivered to your place of employment during the day.  This ensures that it is accounted for immediately and limits the chance of having it stolen from your home.  Although this may create some extra work for a small few in the business, we ask that the employers work with their employees and allow this service so we can eliminate theft throughout the county.

As a reminder, if you see someone acting suspiciously, please don’t hesitate to call the police.  “See something, say something.” Our non-emergency number is 804-501-5000.

Innsbrook’s Great Pumpkin Palooza 2015!

HUGE Success at Innsbrook’s Great Pumpkin Palooza 2015!
Innsbrook’s Great Pumpkin Palooza was a HUGE success from start to finish! Thank you to everyone who attended or participated in any way.  Whether you were in full costume winning prizes in the costume contest, finding success navigating the giant rock wall or exploring your inner cowboy via horseback, we were thrilled to have seen so many smiling and painted faces throughout the day.  We also want to recognize our amazing, young contestants in the 2nd Annual Punkin Dunkin competition, as this year’s flying pumpkins reached incredible new distances.  Three different catapults constructed by Highland Springs High School’s Center for Engineering and Highland Springs Technical Center, could be seen propelling pumpkins through the air, the winning launch hitting a new record of over 700 feet! Congrats to all who participated in this impressive showcase of technical talent.

Jazz Bands from The Steward School and Godwin High School rocked the stage all day in our Battle of the Bands contest, with School of Rock and Main Street Station adding great sets in between.  Judges declared a tie for the title as “Best Jazz Band”; however each school was recognized for their individual talents.  Godwin High was awarded points for “Best Stage Presence” and “Best Jazz Ensemble & Vocalist” and Steward School was highlighted as “Best Jazz Varsity” and won “Best Song Selections”.palooza_pics_001
