Yes, You Can - Become a Triathlete in 2009

Tick. Tock. Time's up.

  • No more sitting on the sideline.

  • No more wondering.

  • No more thinking, "I could do that."

It's time. Your time to try a triathlon.

Crossing your first finish line and becoming a triathlete is something you'll never forget. Each triathlon is an experience that lasts beyond race day. The memories will carry you well past the finish line.

Believe me, you want to cross that finish line.

Why not? Triathlon is an experience. It's a great sport for all ages and abilities. The sport of triathlon offers something fulfilling for anyone, elite athletes to couch potato-turned-athletes. Triathlon is for you!

Get up and start moving. Nervous? Good news, there are many great resources out there including:

10 Most Common Multisport Mistakes

If you are new to exercise, start off easy, be safe. But start! You can do this!

Already a triathlete? Challenge time. Who can you encourage? As you think ahead to 2009, ask a friend to join you as you swim, bike and run. Your encouragement could make the difference!

I love your positive attitude! I wish I had known about your blog last year when I was training for my first triathlon - which quickly became 3 sprint tris, one indoor tri, a duathlon and a half marathon - all within a year of beginning training :)

I'm so glad you found my blog, so I could find yours! This is encouragement I can definitely use since I'll be a first-time triathlete in April! Training now!
I've added you to my blog roll.

Hi Sara! Yes, I would be happy to share info about CDA's course. It was a fantastic venue - that area of the country is simply beautiful! Would you like me too post a comment with the info, or do you have an email I should use instead?
