Subject: Looking to reconnect! Any old friends still here? Or new?
It's been so many years, I don't even know if there's anyone on here that I still know.! BT made me a great triathlete nearly 10 years ago. I went from a mom with a 3 month old baby who had never run or rode, to a woman who did 7 races a year, including one half. I was in the best shape of my life.

Life changes, kids grow, I got divorced and returned to work full time. I always had an excuse to not exercise. Now, I'm back, trying to find myself again, 30 lbs heavier, a decade older, 10x as much stress, but my heart and soul needs this in the worst way.

"Back in the day", I was surrounded by so many amazing people from BT and made many life long friends. I hope to find that community again.

Welcome back! I feel like I'm the only person from the old CO crew still stubborn enough to be hanging on here, and I just do it because I have years and years of training logs that I like to look back on. I log on Strava to keep up with my bike friends, but still like BT because I can blog along with it and have a record of what's going on.

We should ride sometime! I still suck on a road bike though

Hey Mel!

I still poke around here periodically, but it is very quiet. I took a bit of time off after last season, and with the hubs having some health issues, that time off got longer and more "pronounced" than I would have liked. I'm stumbling my way back into a groove.

Would love to connect sometime!

(And I suck on all bikes )

Glad to see you on here! I like the log on here. I started a new account though, so I have nothing to look back on. I would like to MTB again...but sold my bike after my divorce. Would need to find a used one later this spring.

Hey Mel.  Yeah, I'm still here, but don't do logs, or Triathalon anymore.  Just some running and biking.  I still check out the forums about 1x per week or so.  Forums on the other site (ST) are much more lively.

I started riding this spring with the Carnac shoes on Look pedals (with plenty of float). About five minutes into a ride I get sharp pain on the outer edge of my feet, just behind the pedal.

Running does not cause injury. Poor running form does. Running is more enjoyable, and safer if you know what you’re doing. And yes, even old dogs can learn new tricks.
