That's awesome!  I didn't use any of the BT plans but learned a lot from this site in my first years.   Are you training for an IM now?

2005, i met so many fellow bt'ers. Before facebook and other big social media. We used it after katrina to help locate affected friends. 2006 a big group of us trained and encouraged each other for ironman florida and we sat with each other at the prerace dinner and cheered each other on the course. I still have a couple friends who call us when they come to the beach and we visit. I stopped using the logs last year but i will go back and fix that.

A couple special memories were Lucy, one of her goals was to do a 30 minute 5k. After she died unexpectedly, someone organized a virtual 5k on here and a bunch of us went out a ran a 30 minute 5 k in her honor.

Another one was JD Wright, he was a double transplant (liver and kidney i think). He was from Indiana but had family near me. I kinda mentored him on here and he and his family came down here and he did his triathlon here. What a great day. He also passed away a couple years later.

I also enjoyed mentoring several others and those that were close by I actually raced with. Great memories of this site.

Lucy <3.  I met some great people from here.  I miss the culture - facebook and the like are not the same...nor is strava.  There was something really cool about BT.

I just got back on after a long hiatus, but I originally started in Jan 2008. Glad to see so many people still around on here in the forums...especially since I don't Facebook!

It's fun to see some familiar names and faces here. I originally joined in August of 2006 - I'll never forget the challenge forum and the fun we had with Nibbs, although I can't for the life of me remember what it stood for.

I'm back, probably not to do tris again - although who knows. I found myself missing the camaraderie and a safe, fun place to log my workouts and write about life. It's funny, but it seems to mean more if I log my exercise myself rather than watching it being automatically tracked by a fitness device. Those little orange squares bring back good memories and some motivation.
