Athlinks..Facebook for Athletes


If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you can tell I’m a runner. I think I can finally feel comfortable calling myself that. I guess if I partake in the sport of running three or more times a week, I’m a runner, right?

I try and do at least one race a month. It keep me going and it’s something to look forward to. Otherwise, I can get pretty lazy.

About a year ago, my friend, Casey, told me about this site, Athlinks. I like to think of Athlinks as a Facebook for Athletes. I was able to input my information on their site, and I pulled up races I had run up till 2002. I could see all my various times. I was also able to put future races on my calendar. You can “friends” on there also.

Per their blog:

What is Athlinks and why should I join?
Athlinks is both the largest and most complete results database for endurance races on the planet, and a fully-featured social network built specifically for the endurance athlete community.

We add well over one million results to the database each month from several thousand endurance races including running (road races, track and field, cross country), triathlon (any multi-sport), swimming, cycling (TTs and crits), mountain biking and more.

Athlinks is not just another place to park your blog. The community features are deeply integrated with and built on top of your race results. Track and communicate with training partners, club and team members, favorite vendors and more.

You can contact me through e-mail to get my info to add me as a friend on Athlinks!

I just found Goodreads.com which is like a Facebook for nerds. Like me! Who love to read! I'm in heaven. I was an athlete in my younger days. Now, I chase children, which keeps me in decent shape. One day I'll focus again. I'm envious of your running abilities!
