First Post

Fellow Ironman Florida participants:

I'm excited that we're all going on this journey together. For some it'll be an Ironman first...for others it's 'old hat'. No matter what category you fall under it'll definitely be an unforgetable experience.

I think it's cool that so many of us from the same area will be there to compete. To me, that adds to the adventure. While triathlon is an individual sport it also has a 'team' feel to it because we train together, share stories, tips, and cheer for one another on race day.

I thought it would be cool to create a place where we can all go to share information, discuss different things, coordinate training sessions, etc.

The idea is that everyone will have access to the username and password so you can go on at any time and create a post. If you're reading this it's because you received an email with that username and password.

If it's a training ride you're trying to coordinate, create a post and everyone can respond either with a comment or another post. You can put up pictures or links to helpful sites we all might like to visit and/or benefit from. If you create a post just sign it at the bottom with you name so we know who it's from.

This may not be the most efficient way to create a forum like this. If there's a better one I'm all for it. I thought something like this might be helpful for all.
