The triathlon season is in full swing and we’ve had so many athletes racing every weekend it’s over-the-top inspirational for us here at SOAS HQ! Their stories, results and photos pour in, and whether they’ve won a title or toughed it out through a treacherous day, one theme is totally clear–these women LOVE the sport. And it goes beyond racing–they find so much pure FUN in their swim, bike and run training, and how being a part of our ambassador team has led many of them to find new training partners (or partners in crime for post-race antics).Case in point–a group of our girls in the Boulder/Denver area (most of whom met merely a month ago) have fast-formed friendships over race start lines and happy hour “recovery” sessions, the common bond being Team SOAS. They’re discovering other random details in common, too–for example, Whiting and Holly (both transplants to Boulder) share an east coast boarding school background, and many of our Colorado ladies share mutual friends (the real sort, not simply the Facebook variety), yet never knew one another until now. These connections are not all that surprising; there’s just some sort of kismet that brings SOAS ladies together, bonding us firm and fast.
Cheers to all of you!
