I`m new to this, and am starting my training for my first triathlon. I`m 21 and in pretty good shape. I`ve been active my whole life and have done other races in the past like Spartan Race and Prison break, but never attempted this before. I`m doing an Olympic Tri to start and would love all and any advice and help with planning my training! I have a year to prepare and am incredibly dedicated to fitness

Mud runs done require the technical skills (swim/bike) that you will need to be a decent triathlete. Being fit is not enough ... if you need coaching it's worth it.

Deciding on an Ironman as my first venture into triathlon was greeted with incredulity and astonishment combined with a hint of, "well, you're full of yourself aren't you?" and, "a bit ambitious?"

What could've gone wrong did not go wrong. Everything that couldn't go right, went right. Result: The most wonderful, perfect, first triathlon for yours truly.

I never imagined that 350 yards broken down into 7 REALLY long lanes would be so big! I gasped out loud and told Grady that maybe I had underestimated the swim.

In the past 18 months, I have delivered two babies, had meningitis, broken my pelvis, had two surgeries, worked full time, AND completed my first triathlon!

I too was a beginner triathlete...and in many ways, I still am! 6 years ago, I was an overweight woman who considered herself relatively fit until I was told I should start running.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
