I started competing in triathlons last year, as well as trail races and duathlons. I’m on the east coast of the US, and there are races all up and down the coast from late March until November.
Would anybody be interested in racing a sprint triathlon (500-750m swim, 12 mile/20k bike, 3 mile/5k run), a trail race (5, 10, 15, 20, or 40K), or a relay (one person swims, one bikes, one runs) this year?
Ironically, right before the pharma disaster the other day, I had been discussing “proof of life” with a couple members, and I know people have met up before IRL on here, but it’d be cool to get together and do something fitness-related instead of just lunch or what have you.
If you have any interest in any sort of race or event, up to and including tough mudders, let me know! I’m pretty much good to travel anywhere from SC to PA year round with proper notice, and if anyone is interested I can list various events and dates in different states.
If not, I suppose I’ll just be doing what I did last year and challenging myself, but it’d be cool to set something like this up.
P.S. There is no minimum level of fitness I require besides you being able to safely complete a race, and trust me, I have seen some overweight individuals finish. It’s not about winning, just about the challenge.
