How did you get into triathlon?
While riding bikes with my friend, the conversation goes like this (mind you I'm riding my mountain bike and she's on a road bike) Friend: "Oh I can't wait until we're doing triathlons together!" Me: "What?!?! I'm just riding with you for fun!" A few months later I purchase a road bike. Friend: "I can't wait to do our first Ironman together!" Me: "What?!?! I haven't even done my first SPRINT triathlon."
