Subject: Hello from a Tri-Newbie
Hey Everyone. Just signed up for my first triathlon. I'll be doing the New Jersey State Triathlon in the second half of July. I wouldn't exactly consider myself a newbie, but I am sort of starting from scratch. I used to do Adventure Racing because swimming wasn't something I was interested in training for at the time. I also used to do Mtn. bike racing, and long distance running. I took a few years off of long distance training when my friends got into adventure rock climbing, and I haven't been able to do much of anything really in the last two years after my child was born. Now that she is a little older I'm itching to get back into shape. I travel between northern NJ and NYC where I live now just about every day. If you happen to be in the area I'd be happy to meet up. Or if you know of a good tri-club, running club, or biking club, in the area I'd be happy for any advice you may have. Always happy to escape on the bike for some miles.

Sounds like you have a good foundation, just need to sharpen the swimming skill. What distance are you starting with?
I heard the first race is nerve raking but a blast!

I signed up for the sprint, but I am hoping to be well over trained for that distance.

Welcome! Sounds like you've got a great fitness base. Now it's time to get some pool work in    If you're not accustomed to swimming I would suggest a swim group or coach to get your technique right. In swimming that is instrumental in improving.

I hope you find some groups to train with.  You'll find lots of good info here.

Keep us posted.
