Tonight while cleaning the kitchen I stumbled upon a small DC Triathlon Club pin that I had picked up at the Multisport Expo a few weeks ago. It got me thinking – how many of you belong (either officially or unofficially) to triathlon or running clubs?
For me, I officially belong to the DC Triathlon club in that I paid my dues (well, I think I paid them this year anyway), though, I rarely make it out to club events – primarily just due to scheduling reasons. But, they do some amazing sessions/clinics and events – so if you were new to either the area or the sport, it’d be awesome. Or, if you were looking for training partners and/or guidance.
On the running side, I used to running three times a week with a local running group (Pacers, no fee or official membership, just show up), though as my schedule shifted to a coached program I participated less and less. I do still make it out for the occasional long run though. That fits better with my training schedule, and forces me to get out in earlier the morning and knock the run out. And – the biggest benefit is I get to hang out with a bunch of friends, usually eating baked goods afterwards. Plus, this is where The Girl and I met.
I’m curious though – for those that take part in triathlon/running clubs – what’s the biggest driver for your involvement? And for those that don’t, why not? Or, what would increase your participation in them? More clinics, deals with local shops, training races, cupcakes? Purely a curiosity thing.
Also, I’d love to hear from the international folks as well – I know that I see quite a bit on triathlon clubs down in Australia and New Zealand, and Europe. But what about the remainder of Asia, or Africa and the Middle East?
I would love to hear your thoughts! Have a great weekend all!

Yup, that’s right, we’re packing up shop and moving over to the land of …. and of chocolate macaroons! Actually, rather, we’ve already packed up shop – over three weeks ago. The stuff is slowly plodding it’s way across the Atlantic (just off the coast of Newfoundland as of tonight).
One of the things we both really enjoy doing is going to u-pick farms and picking our own fruits and vegetables. In the past, we’ve primarily picked apples, blueberries, and strawberries. Given it’s fall (crazy, huh?), we figured it was time to go out and pick some apples.
Let’s make this clear up front – Paris is nowhere near a beach. The closest oceanesque body of water with sand is roughly 200 kilometers away – and the water there isn’t terribly warm either (the nice stuff is down south). So what do the Parisians do in the hot summer months (aside from close up shop and leave)? They truck in a boatload of sand and setup a beach right in the heart of Paris on the Seine.
Are you coming to Paris? Looking for places to swim, bike and run? Or just simply want to see where I swim/bike/run? Well, here’s the skinny on all my favorite training locations – complete with maps and downloadable routes.
