I am really wanting to do the Sprint Tri here in town at the end of September. It would be neat to mark triathlon and marathon off my bucket list in a matter of weeks. It will be strictly for the sake of doing it. The swim will be border line humorous and the bike will be slow since I have a clunky mountain bike! I am not going to spend large amounts of money on two sports I am not overly interested in. If this triathlon is a success perhaps I will upgrade things one day but for now I am to do this tri thing without spending a small fortune.
