Taking Your Social Media and Running With It

Working in the social media industry, I love to come across different blogs and online profiles and check out how people are using social media for their business, their causes or just their personal life. From time to time I can’t help but be surprised at just how well some people do it. I must admit it always makes me smile when I see someone truly devoting the time to doing it the right way.

Through my social networks, I heard about a young tri-athlete from Montgomery, NY that was really using her social media to her advantage. She not only posts frequently, responds to comments, and interacts well with her followers, but also sets a great tone with her posting. I can’t help but smile with every Feet In Flight Blog posting I read. You really get a sense of who Amanda is just by reading what she has to say.

Aside from her tone and interaction, one of my favorite things that Amanda does is diversify her postings. This is especially true in her blogging. She keeps it relative with stories about female athletes that have inspired her, great training tips, stories about past runs, do’s and don’ts, and some great recipes that are sure to stir up any appetite. How good does a Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie sound? And it’s healthy? Can’t wait to try it!

Amanda is your classic story of a local girl that is going to do great things! Feet In Flight is a documentation of her journey as a new member of Team USA. She'll be blogging the next year of her life, tracking her training progress, her triumphs and her obstacles. She's headed to the World Triathlon Championship Finals in Auckland, New Zealand on October 18, where she will run in honor of The Wounded Warrior Project.

To follow Amanda’s Journey, check out her Facebook, Twitter or Blog. Help us cheer her all the way to the Olympics.

Kudos Amanda! We are proud to have you as a member of our community!
