I'm pleased to share the news that I am officially adding a new hat to my manager for The announcement made it to today which makes it super official.

I was invited two years ago by the site founder, Juan, to be a "featured blogger" alongside Meredith (Swim Bike Mom), Joel (TriMadness!), Mauricio, Dave, and Randy. As a regular reader in addition to contributor, I enjoyed following the ups and downs, journeys, adventures, and self-discoveries that we've all had during that time. Under Juan's leadership, TriCrowd has grown to a community of nearly 7700 and now under management of the fortyninegroup, it will continue and expand that mission.

There have been a few changes to the look and feel of the site as it moved servers. We expanded to add a slate of professional triathletes and have invited three new bloggers - Jeff, Melissa, and Sarah - to join the ranks of featured bloggers. We'll introduce/reintroduce the featured bloggers over the coming weeks.

We welcome multisport bloggers, coaches, and professionals to add their blogs to our pages at our website. Please share your feedback and ideas as we look for ways to further serve as a gathering place for triathletes! The best way to stay connected is through our Facebook page. See you there ;-)
