Just wanted to introduce myself after lurking around here for a while.
I am originally from Newfoundland, Canada, but live & work in Suwon, South Korea for 10 months out of the year. My first triathlon will be on September 1st and my 2nd will be October 13. Currently I am using the 20 Week 2x Beginner Olympic Distance Training Program of this site to get ready for September 1st. I did a work sponsored mini-triathlon (500m swim, 15k bike, 5k run) after only a couple weeks of training and won in a not-so-flattering time of 1:14:00 (run was awful after the first 2 legs).
Anyways, I am very thankful for this site and look forward to communicating with you all.
Darryl, welcome to BT! The training plans are just one of terrific resources available on the site. Living in Korea sounds like an exciting experience. You will find other members that also live/work in Asia - either full time or as ex-pats. Don't hesitate to ask questions in the main forums. Good luck with your training and upcoming races - and congrats on finishing your first event.
