Why do a triathlon?

IT’S A VERY exciting event. Whenever I race, I still get a high from the challenge of going from swim to bike to run.

How do you get started?

Get a lightweight carbon bike, and learn how to ride it. Sounds simple, but it’s important to get comfortable in the saddle. The ride is probably the most difficult [of the three] to train for, and it’s certainly the hardest logistically because of all the gear you need. Two months should be sufficient time to train properly. Everything twice a week: run twice, swim twice, bike twice.
