Swim, Bike, Run… and Pin?

Pinterest has become a go-to website for people all around to share… well, pretty much anything. From pretty pictures to recipes to training tips [for us triathletes] to inspirational quotes, Pinterest has it all. And although it has a reputation for being a “girly” website, it has benefits for both males and females. Through Pinterest, you can not only pin pictures of your favorite travel destinations, outfits, or quotes. You can also pin workouts, as well as a great deal of other triathlon-related information.

The boards from Ironman, Ben Greenfield, Inside Triathlon, and various other triathletes provide go-to resources for ideas for workouts, gear, training destinations and more. Ironman recently pinned a recipe for pre-workout energizing bars, found under their nutrition and recipe board. Some of my favorite parts of triathlon Pinterest boards are the gear suggestions, as well as the inspirational quotes.
