I did my first triathlon at Warwick on 28th September, 1.38.39, which I was delighted with. Not fast, but steady. I was aiming for sub two hours, so to knock 20 mins off that felt fab. I much prefer training for tris, due to the variety, so it won't be my last one. Also gives me an excuse to take my boy swimming!!
Pipram, I've just signed up for the very same tri as my first one. All I've bought is a 2XU tri suit which fits me fine. I have a Specialized Sirrus hybrid which I've had for years that I'm going to use. I may also invest in some new runners that will hopefully last me a while
