call me a geek, but today at the gym i saw one of the ladies who created the tri group i belong to (not the gym ironlady class) this is a tri group that trains during the summer months. I joined last year and it was a wonderful experience, i took advantage of all the workouts i could, as well as any talks they had IE. how to set up transition area, nutrition etc.
The lady asked me if I would speak at their first meeting of the season that welcomes new members. they want someone who joined last year as their first time and they thought of me !! I was quite touched.
