Okay-I’m going to put this out there.
This summer, I kind of want to try a mini triathlon. Like mini-mini.
I found this one-which seems like a possibility:
I remember last summer looking into triathlons, and I saw one in NJ that was something along the lines of swimming 250 yards, biking 5-6 miles, and running 1 mile-now that’s what I’m talking about! Of course now I can’t find the information on this race, and I don’t remember the name of it. This would have been perfect because I am really nervous about swimming and biking, considering I haven’t ridden a bike in years, and have never swam more than a couple of laps.
A few other possibilities are:
I want 2014 to be the year I try a bunch of different things, such as:
- Doing a tri (possibly)
- NYC Urbanathlon?
- Another mud run
I don’t own a bike, but I could probably find one somewhere. Swimming is what makes me the most nervous. I’m not the best swimmer, and I have only really swam in a pool, not open water. Biking is hard but I’ve biked more than 15 miles in spin class before, so it should be doable. I realize that it’s probably harder biking outside than indoors on a spin bike.
Have you done a mini/sprint triathlon before?
What advice would you give to a complete newbie?
Anyone done an urbanathlon before?
