How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

When I was about 5 years old on vacation with my family, there was a magazine where we were staying that had an article about triathlons. From that moment on, I promised myself that I would do a triathlon, with a dream of competing in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. Growing up, I was a swimmer, and it wasn’t until college that I picked up running and cycling due to friends who were involved in those sports. Seeing as I was doing all three, I figured I would sign up for a sprint triathlon. I haven’t looked back since.
