It Is fun to look back.   Reading through logs and seeing what I was doing when I started   It helps me when I am trying to help newbies remember that at one time I knew NOTHING

Registered in 2008 and still logging consistently.  It's nice to go back and see how far I've come.  I've met a couple of people from the site over the years and consider one a good friend (latestarter).

I must love IMFL as it's my 4th time back there   I am pretty certain I won't beat my PR there which was 10 years ago....age hurts my feelings  but...it's for sure better than the alternative so just looking to have a great season of training and good time out on the course.  Plus, I just bought a new bike frame and am looking forward to building it up and becoming good friends.  

Originally posted by trinunya I have logged every one of my workouts here since December 2010. I did IMFL in 2011. You are going to love it if the weather is good. It was a great PR for me.. I would like to beat it someday but I am getting older and slower. I might do it again next year.

Still here, once in awhile.  Joined 2004-02-05, hard to believe over 15 years ago.  I became burnout several years ago, sold the TB and since I'm small business work-to-much type I got out of shape.  2 years ago a friend asked me to do a Ragnar Miami SB and that got me got back into running. We've done 4 relay runs had have 2 more later this year to do along with a HM.  Sure is getting tougher the older I get!

That's great! I hear ragnar is a blast.  I'd love to do hood to coast one year.   I agree- it is getting MUCH harder as I age

My profile tells me I started here in November of '04. I'd signed up for a 'super sprint' tri with a 200m pool swim and I was trying to build up to swimming 200m. Over the years I've met a few other BT people at events. Like so many others here, my training fell off quite a bit for a few years. I'm trying to get some of it back now but, almost 15 years later, it's not coming back so easily any more. Especially the running!

Joined in Jan 2004.  Visit now only on rare occasions, usually to check something on my old logs.

I "retired" from triathlon due to some physical ailments that hindered my riding and running.  Just a Masters swimmer now.

Not too many names I recognize anymore.

I'm April 2006.  Been logging workouts ever since.  Can't believe I've been doing this lifestyle that long, but I guess I have.    Its a great community.

I stopped tris maybe 5 or 6 years ago and have focused on swimming.  Its been a worthwhile and engaging transition.  Even so, I still regularly log the workouts and keep up with friends through inspires.

I joined in 2006, so not quite "original" but long nonetheless   I still use the log to log everything I do, fitness-wise.  It's quite a data set at this point. 

I remember your name, too!  Welcome back and happy training

Hi all,

Joined in 2004 - as others have said, it was a completely different scene here at the time.

I still use the training log and check this general discussion forum every once in a while.

What's on your race calendar for this year?   I like this format better than strava or garmin connect, both which I have used but meh.

I "quit" tris after 2016...I had my only two DNFs - one was at St. George 70.3 - I was hypothermic...and then I dropped (almost literally, lol) from IM Chatt 6 miles from the finish later that year due to heat exhaustion.  I was over it after that!   But only for a hot minute    I did some ultra running and swam around key west but last fall did Escape to Miami and now am registered for IMFL.   It will be my 4th IMFL and hopefully my 6th 140.6.  Just bought a new bike frame as my tri bike was no longer safe to ride    I will be building it up so it will be ready to start full on IM training next month.   Woohoo!   It is a great lifestyle with awesome friendships forged along the way

"Just a maters swimmer"...that in itself is a great thing!    Swimming is probably my favorite!

Wasn't it great to go to a race and meet up with people you "knew"!   BT dinners and just friendly faces.  I learned so much on here!!   Look forward to seeing you get back to your roots!

I just logged back in after almost 2 years off of the site (checked my last post).

I joined in 2006, was active on here for a while, Felt Mafia!

Decided two years ago to get back in to tri's.  ended up doing more endurance running, forgot the riding and swimming parts!

looking to race IM 70.3 NC in October this year so checked in.

Enjoyed  "cup of joe" although it was quiet last time, was very active early on.

Recognize a number on here that have responded so far although I was nowhere near as active as most.

looking forward to getting back to multisport training, already back on the bike and still running just the third (and by far hardest) swimming to go!

Oh, now there are some memories. TTN's fixie riding on Powercranks? Or the ultimate blow-up of "Disappointed"? The throw-down between TNO and ST at... which tri was that?

'Dissapointed' -how it was spelled in the thread - was the most train-wrecky in real-time thread ever created. I didn't understand what I was reading until about the time the thread got pulled, which happened pretty quickly, IIRC. I don't remember the throw down well but can't imagine it went well for the TNO folks..

 

vague memories of that but not at all what it was about!

That's great you are back at it!   Maybe you can stir the pot up and get cup of joe exciting again
