Are You Ready to TRI?

by Lauren Ganes, Marathon Coordinator

Summer brings good weather and a time to get out and exercise.  Why not try something new, choose a new goal?  How about a sprint triathlon?  You get to swim, bike and run!

Ann R Eileen K at Sprint Tri 9-22-2012WOW has a 12 week training plan to help you organize your time so you train for all three sports and happily cross that finish line.

This takes planning and carving out less than 4 hours a week to reach your goal.  Having a goal pushes you to train in the sport that is your weakest, either physically or emotionally.   It is so exciting to cross that finish line and know you have become a stronger more empowered woman.

You do not need buy any special clothing or equipment to participate in a triathlon.  If you don’t own a bike, see if you can borrow one from a friend.  You may need to buy a pair of goggles, but other than that you have the hat, swimsuit, shorts, shirt, and running shoes.

So what are you waiting for? There is no better time to TRI than now!
