When I started triathlon 3 years ago, an iron distance race, 140.6 miles consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike and then a full marathon of 26.2 miles seemed like a pipe dream. I didn’t know how to swim. The furthest I’d ever biked was 35 miles and my road bike was way too big for me. The longest I’d ever run was 7 miles. An iron distance race wasn’t just scary, it was intimidating. If you’d told me that 3 years later I’d be doing one I would have laughed in your face. My how times change.
October 2012 I did my first triathlon, the Rex Wellness Knightdale super sprint. September 2013 I did my first Olympic triathlon, the Outer Banks Triathlon. October 2014 I did my first half iron triathlon, Beach2Battleship. I must have liked B2B so much that I signed up for it again for 2015, this time for the full.
