Tucson Tri Girls help make triathlons doable for women of all abilities.
Exert from the Article:
In Tucson, the Tucson Tri Girls nonprofit (tucsontrigirls.org) seeks to provide female triathletes of all levels and abilities a team atmosphere, training clinics, education and contacts for others interested in the sport. The organization started in April 2003 and currently has more than 500 members on their listserv and 100 active members. It's open to women of all ages, and current members include some in their 60s and 70s.
The organization started with "a group of women who just realized they were seeing each other at all these events. They joined forces and started the email listserv. It's very active. It's where people can go and look for training partners and advice," says president Stacie LaPointe.
