Unless You Dare to Battle [quote] + Updates!
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.

I’ve had my hands pretty full recently and hope to get some more substantial posts out soon, but here’s a few quick updates:
- YC Project: I’ve been working on a cool Y Combinator related side project that’s almost done. I promise you guys will get a first crack at it when I release!
- Ridejoy Funding: We announced some big news for Ridejoy: we raised $1.3M in seed funding from Freestyle Capital, SV Angel, Founder Collective and some other awesome people. Some coverage in AllThingsD, Techcrunch and Wall Street Journal.
- How to woo a startup: Getting hired at a startup is tough. I know, I wrote a mega-post on it. That’s why I was super impressed with how Ridejoy’s new community manager applied (and got the gig). Learn more here.
- Triathlon training: It’s going well. I struggled in the pool at first, and apparently gymnasts are notoriously bad at swimming, but I’m starting to figure it out. Doing a swim-bike brick tomorrow morning!
