How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

I caught the triathlon bug pretty hard in 2009.  I grew up swimming and while it is by far my weakest discipline, I had no qualms about open water swimming with a bunch of other people.  I started biking in late 2008 after I got injured running the SF Marathon and couldn’t run for 3 months.  I figured that since I could do all 3 sports I might as well give the triathlon a go.  I did the Golden Gate Olympic and remember crossing the line thinking that I had way too much left in the tank and that I needed to step it up.  Once 2010 rolled around I got serious, signed up for Wildflower and IM CDA, and was on my way!  I’ve never looked back since.
