How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

I got into triathlon in 2008. I did a small sprint distance race on Long Island and had NO idea what I was doing. I changed my outfit from bike to run clothes in T2, I swam in a surfing wetsuit. I was a real mess. Even with all my triathlon faux pas, i still finished ~20th, overall. I decided then that I would do some research and get serious about training. I went back to that race the following year and finished 3rd overall. I’ve been hooked ever since.
