The Ripple Effect

Harriet Anderson is the 74 year old Ironman champion whose story I told on the Athleta Chi site recently.

If you haven’t read her story you may want to – she’s amazing.

What I find nearly as inspiring are the 81 and counting comments written in by the Athleta community. People who each have a story of their own. Starting to run at the age of 50. Women taking on their first triathlon. A wonderful assortment of people throughout the spectrum.

The one thing in common? Everyone is inspired by Harriet. And each other. That’s what community is all about!



  1. I love community. There’s something so cool about seeing people you know during the day – while out riding your bike or whatever. Makes you feel a part of something neat 🙂

  2. That is the definition of community! I think we do that for each other on our blogs too.
