How'd you catch the triathlon bug? As a slow fat runner, I wanted to give a break to my knees and found a very small training group of 6 ladies and a college student named Antonio who helped introduce me to riding a bike and swimming.

What's your favorite workoutRiding my bike on country roads

Do you have a favorite race or triathlon memoryThe stunning beauty of riding around Mt Bachelor at Pacific Crest.
