So, the more I look into the whole tri thing and talk to people that are doing it, I have more and more questions! I know that many of these will probably be alleviated once I finally just do one, but in the mean time, I keep wondering about open water swims, transitioning, fueling, etc. I have one friend that does tris, just completed her first Ironman, and she is part of a coaching facility where she pays for coaching, and all of that. Though the support of that would be great, I don't have the budget for that! I'm still recovering from the bike purchase :)
Anyhow, after more searching online I found several local tri clubs. I got more curious, looked into several of them, and they do some pretty fun stuff! I joined the one above, Northern Utah Triathletes. For a small annual fee, you are in! They offer tons of group workouts, open water swim clinics, socials, mock races, all kinds of stuff and I am so excited about it! I can't wait to meet others, learn from their experiences, and hopefully improve my performance through it all. It will be way fun, I have talked with the founder and coach, and she is going to be awesome!
So, I guess this means I am OFFICIALLY in the club, right?
