I need to vent a little. I’m beginning to think that the triathlon community of bloggers is VERY difficult to break into. I have left approximately 10 posts on new tri bloggers. I sought these people out through Mary and Ange’s blogs. On most of my posts I mention Mary and Ange so that they know where I am coming from. I'm simply trying to correspond with other triathletes to share knowledge and triathlon "stuff".
To this day I have only received two replies. Today I found that Triguy actually DELETED my post. Am I THAT pathetic? Am I so "green" that I am not worthy of correspondences from more experienced triathletes? Even if I am "green" why would they not want to share their experiences with a newbie like myself? I certainly wouldn't deny correspondences if some new runner came along and wanted to share their new experiences with me. I would, quite honestly, be flattered that they even contacted me.
So, regarding those bloggers, I can only conclude that one of the two circumstances exist:
A: They have all the followers they need and do not need any more followers. Perhaps it takes too much time to keep up and respond to all of their followers. Must be tough.
B: I'm not coming across in a nice-enough way (I doubt it) or they think I am a lunatic (probably).
Whatever the case. I'm done.
Also, I have been out of commission alllllll week… not one single workout due to my back injury… So I am not running Derry. I am still going up to Derry. I will fullfill fan, Sherpa, and photographer duties for my best running buds at http://www.greaternorwoodrunningclub.org/
The good news is. I feel rested, healed, refreshed, and can't wait to start my training next week. I think I said this not to long ago.
