In 2012 that is just what I did. I had just started running 5ks in 2011 to keep up with my 10 year old who had found a love of running. I did NOT love running... but I had always enjoyed swimming and biking as a kid. So, when the instructor of my morning spin class started talking about a local sprint triathlon I was intrigued. Without doing any real "training plan," I found an indoor triathlon to sign up for and I did it! With that, on March 4th 2012, I became a triathlete... and I was HOOKED!!
