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.
