YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR FIRST
EVERY triathlete has a “my first triathlon” story.
If it’s a middle-aged parent of 2 or an elite cyclist turned swimmer / runner, you have to start somewhere. Why does this matter? Because ya don’t know until ya know. And that’s okay. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
You’re going to feel way less embarrassed if you ask what to wear under your wetsuit than if you just assume everyone comes into T1 (transition one) in a naked free for all.
Chances are you are not alone, so ask away…
