How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

A friend convinced me to sign up for the South Beach Sprint Triathlon back in 2010. Both of us were working long hours in NYC and going out way too hard, so we figured it’d be a good motivator to get to the gym every once in a while. (He later backed out, and I went solo…) Having no background in swim, bike, or run and no clue how to properly train, the race crushed me. But it was a lot of fun and I wanted to get better. Seven years later, that’s still the goal!
