On May 24th, I will be participating in my first ever triathon.
I will be racing an event put on by an organization I've been mentioned a lot lately, Bristow Tri and Swim. The event is the Salute to the Military Sprint and Youth Triathlon in Warrenton, VA. It looks like a great starter race for me to tackle. It has a 350m swim, a 12.4 mile ride and then a 5K run. I feel like other than the back-to-back-to-back nature of the events, the single part I'll need to concentrate on will be the bike portion, as I haven't used my bike is 2 years or so. I'll also have Katie tackling her first triathlon with me, so it will be easier than going it alone. Much like all the other BRATS events I've participated in, this is a great value as well, individual registration is just $50 right now.
I'm really excited about this. I'll be training for the Rock n Roll DC Half marathon in March, so the extra conditioning in the form of bike riding and swimming will only help. Looking for a good value tri? Thinking of giving a tri a try? Come join Katie and I at this event. It'll be fun with us if nothing else.
