Good for you Bryan. I am a reformed smoker as well. Still working on my first half marathon (this fall.) Can't wait to hear about your ironman experiences

Welcome, Julie,
I think you find triathlons a very fun and healthy way to keep fit. You're always doing something different for training, so you won't get bored. If you've done some du's, you already know the challenge of running off the bike. The swim is just the warmup for the bike and run! emoticon
Have fun with your training, and ask questions. There are lots of smart people on these team pages!

WOW, way to go on the active board. I think you will find triathlons about the most fun you can have on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Good Luck and enjoy your training. It is the best part

Welcome!

Starting Triathlon was the BEST thing that I have done for myself in many years!

Hi! My name is Julie. I am a mom of 4. I joined SparkPeople several years ago to shed weight and keep it off for good. In the process, I have found challenges that keep me motivated and moving. I've done some half and full marathons, as well as some 10k and 5k events. I did a duathalon last year and it was a very challenging experience. I wanted to try a Sprint Tri, so I'll be doing that in late September in my area. Looking forward to chatting with other folks who have participated in the Sprint Tri or other Tri distances.
