When I first launched Peloton Sessions rides for Metro Volunteer Lawyer’s (MVL) Barristers Ball, I thought it would be fun to build an online legal community for fitness, AND also do some good towards access to justice issues that our communities face.
However, what I didn’t expect going into the ride was a feeling of camaraderie, a feeling created simply by knowing that the other names on the leaderboard were people who are in my Colorado legal community. Just knowing that put a smile on my face. And also knowing they wouldn’t actually see my (sweaty, red) face or hear my breathlessness during the class was certainly another plus.
As much as I love in-person events (I would deem myself an extreme extrovert if there is such a category) and a good cocktail, I appreciated being able to connect with others without the alcohol and without the small talk - but all while still feeling a sense of community.
Want to check it out for yourself? Please join me and others on the Peloton app for the rest of April and into May. Drop-in for a class and if you can, toss in some money for MVL while you’re at it:
