Triathlon 101 - Event on Facebook (please RSVP)
It seems like it was ages ago, but it was actually less than two years ago that I found myself walking on to the pool deck at Tokay High School for my first triathlon class. I wish I had a picture of that day... Coach James had his full "tri-freak" set up on display for everyone. Seeing the fancy bike, the race helmet, and a bunch of other strange stuff almost sent me running back to my car. Thankfully I stuck it out and overcame my fear of trying something new.
|The very first Lodi Masters Triathlon training group (Fall 2012)|
Here's a bit of info on our team and what sort of equipment you will need to do a triathlon...
To celebrate the end of the training program, our group participates in what we call our "Graduation Race".
|Look how we've grown! Spring 2013 graduation race|
The graduation race for the spring 2014 class is the Father's Day triathlon on Sunday, June 15, 2014. It consists of a 400 yard swim, an 8 mile bike ride, and a 2 mile run. The cost for the race is separate from the class fee and is $70 before April 30. After that it goes up to $75 until the day before the race, and then $80 the day of the race, so save some money and sign up early :-)
Signing up for the race is also a great way to stay committed and motivated.
