Hello! I am a 51 year old female, about to retire from 30 years with the state, and instead of buying a sports car, I've decided to try a triathlon! I've run two Spartans in the past two years and my first 5 k. I do pretty well for my age group, but this is all new to me. Looking for advice on training, etc. My goal is to run the 3 little pig sprint in June in Smithfield, but toying with doing a longer one.

I did 3 little pigs last year (2016).  It's a popular race with a pool swim.  They'll ask you for a swim time and it's important to be honest on it.  If you quote too slow, you'll find yourself behind honestly slow people expending energy trying to get around them.  If you quote too fast, you'll have faster swimmers climbing up your back.  

Training advice?  Be consistent and grow slowly.  Beyond that, enjoy the time you're training.
