Before I ever tried one I went as a volunteer. It was a good way to learn how it works plus I saw that there were people like me competing. Not all superathletes. My first goal was to finish, that's it, no time goals. I think that more and more these events are accommodating ordinary people and I think that they are really growing.

Just some food for thought for anyone looking for something new to do/train for/try.

Congrats on the two triathlons!! I find your story very motivating since i am just starting to run at 45.
