Although there are many triathlon races that are customized for beginning triathletes, committing to the first race can be intimidating to most beginners.

  • How is open water swimming different from indoor swimming? How do you select swim gear?
  • What cycling techniques or bike gears help when training for a race?
  • What are the most effective cross-training methods?
  • Is 12-15 weeks enough time to prepare?
  • Is hiring a trainer helpful?

From your experience, what words of wisdom would you give to the first-time triathlete?
