Would I be a good Triathlete?
Whenever you are telling a person you do triathlon, people are mostly quite impressed. Becoming a real triathlete can happen really quickly. People discover triathlon differently. When you already run and cycle, only swimming is missing for you. Others are looking for the challenge to practice more than one sport. From whatever point you start, triathlon is a perfect mix of three complementary sports. It’s a challenge and it is always a lot of fun to do!
