One month ago tonight, the Austin Triathlon Club was holding its kickoff happy hour. At the time, the club officers were a bit nervous. We weren't sure how many folks would show up. We knew that most people probably hadn't heard of us, and might not know what to expect. Since Austin Tri Club is entirely volunteer, word about the club was spread primarily by word of mouth and grassroots enthusiasm. Looking back a month later -- what a journey it's been!
As of this morning, Austin Triathlon Club has 38 members, with more members joining every day. Our members range from beginners hoping to complete their first triathlon to coaches to professional triathletes. We are truly grateful for the support and the faith that these founding members have placed in Austin Tri Club to deliver on its promise of serving as a community triathlon club for Austin -- and for throwing themselves into Club activities right off the bat. We are so excited to know you!
So, what has the Club been up to in its first month?
Thank you to everyone who has pitched in so far. The Club is not possible without your support, enthusiasm, and willingness to give back to the Austin tri community. We hope to see you at the next club happy hour on Monday, December 11th, at the Ginger Man!
Let's make 2018 the best race season ever!
