I am a recent high school graduate and have experience in swimming and running. I had been thinking about doing a tri for a while but I finally took the plunge on July 19th. It was a sprint tri and I finished well under my goal time of 2 hours(1:39:04). I loved everything about it. Even though I don't plan on doing anymore races before I move to college I am always htinking about the future.
I'm going to attend the University of Michigan Ann Arbor in a few weeks and I hope that I can continue my training through the harsh winter months.
I spent much time lurking these forums before my triathlon and I wouldn't know nearly as much without all of you.
