What's an individual sport?

Go read this.

Next time you think you're better off by always training alone, by doing your own thing, think again.

The workout that Paul Tichelaar was able to accomplish today would be impossible to do on his own. It's a good example that shows that nothing pushes you more than being challenged on a daily basis by those with a similar ability and goals than you.

So you think triathlon is an individual sport? Think again.

We need a Boulder BAMF.

If you are lucky to know people with similar abilities in your area, who share the same schedules,...
But I agree on the group motivation factor. It is just not always accessible.

Well put. Nothing like a squad setting for a little motivation and inspiration. Those squads are easier to build than you might think, Arnaud. Just keep trying!

Will I get teammates now to finish the swim, bike, or run for me at my next race? HUG IT OUT!!
