As some of you may know, I tried a triathlon last year. And by tried a triathlon, I mean got into a debilitating bike accident two weeks before the race, but still tried to do it (despite the fact that I was using a cane), had a giant freak out in the water, and quit.
But, as the bumper stickers say, tri tri again. And so, Lizard will soon be swimming and biking in addition to running.
I joined the New Triathletes Program through the DC Tri Club, which usually fills up in minutes but appears to still be open if you want to join me! It’s $100 for the program and an additional $35 to join DC Tri if you aren’t already a member.
The program culminates in a new DC Triathlon in June, but I can’t find any information about it. I’m torn between the sprint and olympic distances–yes, I’m scared of drowning, but I also really want to get my money’s worth out of training.
Any triathletes out there want to give me some advice? I need it.
