Hi!
Nice to meet y'all. My name is Brigitte and I am from the Netherlands.
After almost 10 years of running (progressing from 5k road to100k on the trails) I decided I wanted a new challenge.

So... inspired by a friend of mine I choose to become a triathlete :-).
I am new to running & swimming. For now swimming is my biggest priority. Going from breaststroke to frontcrawl is a challenge. :-). Also swimming in open water comfortably is not something that comes naturally to me.
But hey! I wanted a challenge, didn't I? :-)

I started training about 2,5 months ago (april 2018) and finished my first 2 1/4 triathlons in one weekend in June. I absolutely loved it! I prepared for this race with a free training plan from this site and it worked perfectly.

My goal is doing a full IM in July (Klagenfurt, Austria) or August (Maastricht, The Netherlands) 2019. I am looking forward to using Beginner Triathlete again for a custom-made plan from 1/4 to half to full!

Have fun training & racing
Kind regards
Brigitte

Welcome.  My path was the opposite...I got started in triathlons and moved into ultra's.  (Haven't done much the past few years.)  

I used a BT plan for my IM races.
