The Boston Triathlon Meetup Group

July 31, 2007

So I’ve been looking for a different ways to help bring together some local triathletes and help facilitate some group workout or just some casual events to geek out over all things tri-related.

So I pulled out my full geekness and started poking around the web. I poked around this “create your own social network site” Ning.com which seemed good but not quite as focused on “in-person” meetups and I had hoped.

Coincidentally, I met up with fellow Wheelworks Multisport-er at a Clif Bar charity event last weekend who had exactly the same idea as me. – We loved the team for group rides/workouts, but sometimes (often) they just didn’t match our training schedules.

So Jen, beating me out in internet geek-dom, started up this group on Meetup.com for just that purpose. There are tons of local folks already out there looking for local tri-studs and studettes to train with, unlike the scant few that have stopped by my Ning page. 😦 But this site does look pretty promising, so head on over there and check it out. Its free, just set up an account and RSVP to any events you care to jump in on.

The first meetup is a run along the esplanade on August 8. Hope to see any of you guys out there.
