How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

All started because I loved to play Soccer, but I wasn’t that good at it.  Endurance and resilience made up for my lack of skills, so I had to make sure I was always in shape to run for 90 mins non-stop.  I got tired of running on my own, so I joined a running group near my office where I met the 2 guys that talked me into joining them on our first triathlon (Big Kahuna, now 70.3 Santa Cruz).

I had a blast on that race and I got hooked immediately, I even stopped playing soccer to avoid injuries.
