Light Bulb went off!

So, I have an idea.  Please tell me what you think?

Many of us read blogs to inspire us, encourage us, make us think of new training ideas, keep us accountable, and the list goes on.  So, why not create a tradition within the triathlon blogs of just that, a glimpse into our lives via pictures of the trials and tribulations of training.  At the end of the day we are triathletes (well me not yet) but we are also Fathers, Mothers, Friends, Co-Workers, Employers, Training Partners, Sisters, Brothers, so on and so on.

Here is the idea....post a blog post once a week that has pictures, funny pictures, serious pictures, any pictures of your week.  We as a community can then see how others train, what equipment they use, where they train and the conditions.

At this point you might be thinking, how am I going to take pictures all the time?  Well, i have a smart phone, which is frankly smarter than me most of the time that takes pictures.  It's easy, there are apps and there are just standard pictures.  For example, while on a run this morning I took this picture.....

At each weeks blog post we should have somewhere between 2 and 10 pictures or so, depending on how much you are into pictures!  Want to give it a try?  I will be posting my first "tri" at this on Friday with a link at the bottom of my post where you can leave your blog address of your picture post.  Next thing you know, we might have a good ring of participants and give us all some much needed encouragement, education, and inspiration.

Train hard, Train smart.


  1. That sounds like a great idea. I have to remember to take pics! I always think of it after the workout is done. Whoops!

  2. I need to get better at taking the pictures! I don't have a smart phone, so I have to remember to carry my camera. A bit of a pain on runs, but pretty easy to do on rides.
