Welcome to the Wish Team

Dec 3, 2004

Welcome, you have found the WISH Racing Team. I'd be more than happy to get you started with our WISH Team! You become a WISH Team member by posting on the monthly thread. That's it!

The main team thread is actually the monthly walker/runner thread (Wk of Month/Day – WISH Walking/Running Club). This monthly thread is where we share training and other information. Stop by there and introduce yourself. We are a friendly group with a variety of backgrounds and abilities. Feel free to ask any question and there will be a variety of people willing to help you out.

Motto: DLF>DNF>>DNS (Dead Last Finish is better than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start), WISH gave me the courage to start.

WISH "Social" Teams
2010 WISH "Social" Team info thread
WISH "Social" Teams have been established for any WISH'er who is interested in interacting with a smaller group of people within the WISH environment. "Social" Teams have been helpful to some WISH'ers in providing additional resources, support, and camaraderie beyond the main board; and can be a good way for new WISH'ers to become an intergral part of the WISH family without feeling lost in the "big WISH" Events/Competition forum.

WISH "social" teams are not mandatory, are non-exclusive and are always welcoming to new members and to "visits" by any and all WISH'ers and you can feel free to start a social group if you'd prefer.

Events: Look below for information on races that the WISH team will have participants in.

I've received many requests for the WISH shirt artwork. I would like to make the artwork available for anyone who WISHes to use it!

However, in order to keep the use in line with the WISH Team spirit, there are a couple of rules.

1) The artwork is copyright protected and as such contains all the protection provided under the US Copyright Law.
2) The artwork can be used for individual use only. This means, you can put the artwork on items for yourself and family and friends, but not on anything that can or will be merchandised in any fashion.
3) The artwork may not be altered in anyway.
4) Any printing that will be more than just your local group (i.e., a whole WISH Team item) must receive written permission from me in advance.
5) All printing from this point on must contain the copyright line.

If I should be absent for a while and you need to contact me, please send Lily, Carrie, Cam, or Mel after me!
