The Triathlon Song

Posted by Filed Under: Inspiration & Motivation, Races & Racing, Triathlon, Video

A funny thing happens when you roll the dice and start cross-training by swimming and riding your bike. You realize that you could probably manage a triathlon. You get intrigued. You sign up for a local Tri for Fun and before you know it you’re hooked.

This weekend marks the half way point between Ironman Canada and Ironman Louisville (yes, there are enough endurance junkies to fill up two Ironman races in the same weekend on the same continent) and Ironman Wisconsin, scheduled for September 9. So that’s three Ironman races over the course of three weeks on one continent—and they are all full. See what I mean about getting hooked?

In honor of this weekend and to help you “could-be” triathletes learn the ropes I am posting “The Triathlon Song” created by Tyler “Jetpack” Darby who will be competing in his first Ironman next weekend.

Here’s to everyone out there who has or will soon toe the line at a triathlon, regardless of the distance of your race.

About 21stCenturyMom

I found myself at the age of 38 the single full time working mother of 3 small children. I took up running because I figured I could get the biggest benefit in the least amount of time. Swearing never to run a marathon I found myself going out for a 4 - 6 mile run several times a week. I ran my first marathon 6 years later. Five years after that I ran another and then the next year another. Then I got bit by the triathlon bug so now I split my time between running, swimming and cycling. This year I think I'll run another marathon. And next year - who knows?
