Good morning, friends! Happy Tuesday! Before heading into the office this morning, I want to pop in quickly and tell you about #TriChat, a Twitter-based conversation Jen and I will be hosting this Sunday, Jan. 20 at 8 p.m. EST.
Jen and I “met” during #RunChat—a biweekly Q&A session for runners of all ages and abilities looking to connect with one another—and even though this conversation always promises fun times and plenty of motivation, I wanted to have similar interactions with triathletes. Long story short, Jen and I began brainstorming, planning, and advertising, and now, we’re set to moderate the first official chat!
Like #RunChat, #TriChat will take place on Sunday evenings at 8 p.m., and since there’s a lot of crossover between runners and triathletes, we decided to host the event on the first and third Sundays of each month. (#RunChat occurs on the second and fourth.) On the 20th, we plan to ask a few questions about the 2012 season before discussing goals for the 2013 campaign. We’re also happy to report that USA Triathlon will join us as a guest moderator on Sunday! (Check out this press release—talk about legit!)
Let’s recap quickly:
Who: Triathletes of every age and ability, wannabe triathletes, general fitness fanatics
When: Sunday, Jan. 20 at 8 p.m. EST
Why: Because talking about triathlons is awesome!
Jen and I hope you join us! Be sure to “like” Tri Chat on Facebook and follow the account on Twitter. Following USA Triathlon on Twitter (@USATriathlon) would also be a good idea, and since Jen (@OneLovelyRun) and I (@CarrieStevens25) will ask the questions, you should follow us too. And feel free to pepper your triathlon-related tweets with #trichat, #trigeek, two of our favorite hashtags. We hope to see you there!
