While some athletes prefer to train by themselves, there are those of us who prefer the accountability that comes with training with a workout partner or group. Not only have I learned a great deal about form, sequence, and details from other athletes I have to admit the social part of working out with a friend feeds my soul as well.

If you are looking to learn more about training for a triathlon or are just looking to increase your social circle – check out the FREE training opportunities posted on the Grand Rapids Triathlon website at: http://www.grandrapidstriathlon.com/Training.php
