Congratulations on taking that first step...signing up for a race! If you stick with the swim program, and get in the pool at least one other time per week, you will be ready.
Good luck!

Congratulations! Be prepared to be hooked. I did one and thought I'd never do another, then time passes (kinda like having kids) and did one last September. I'm already thinking about the next one!

Have a blast!

Good decision, best wishes, fitness is so much more fun and effective with a goal in mind.

Where you end up is more important than how fast or where you start out.
- Improved fitness and nutrition, energy and confidence are my rewards.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
A PH (personal high) is the main goal, a PB is the sometime icing on the cake.
Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness.

Congrats on signing up!! I'm planning on doing one in Sep, but haven't signed up yet. That's awesome that you can get free swim training! We checked into it and it is sooo expensive!

Well, I did it. I signed up for my first sprint triathlon, Tour de Kirkwood, July 25th. The good news is that I chose my first to be in my home town. The swim is at our City pool and the bike and run is around town. All places that are familiar to me. My goal is to get through the swim and finish. I just took my mountain bike in this weekend to get smooth tires and went to my first Master's Swim Class with the local tri club. The classes are on Sunday and FREE. I am in the beginner swim group because I don't have the endurance to swim long or far. Hopefully, in twenty weeks and with practice I will be ready for the swim. I feel pretty comfortable with the run and bike.
