Make some friends
This here is my buddy Jon, he's the handsome sanchez looking geeza on the right. We often train together, infact he's the only guy I know who's like minded in the whole running/cycling thing. But Jon's got a young family and can't always come out for a mission at the drop of a hat when I text him "Hey bro I'm just finishing up at yo Momma's house, want to come for a ride after?"
I'd like to know more people to go out training with, yeah I can join a club, and probably will when I get round to it but I see events such as The Icebreaker Quickie in the Forest as a brilliant opportunity to meet other fit or wanting to be fit bods.
So I encourage you to break out of your comfort zone and strike up a conversation with someone unknown on race day, you might really hit it off and have a training partner for life! In my experience I have found other competitors not to be terribly friendly, maybe it's because they're busy psyching themselves up, already have their tight group or maybe it's my face. Granted most of my racing has been in Auckland...
But some people are just a little shy and that's understandable, so you be the one who makes the first move, rock on over and show them your impressive calf muscles, or how far you can squirt your water bottle, they could be suitably impressed and bam, you've started yourself a mean as training group of two.
