First Triathlon with Team in Training

Triathlon Event  Hi, I just wanted to let you know how helpful your website has been. I just completed my first sprint triathlon and I often went to your website to get advice and info. It was a great experience and I did it with Team In Training which made it all the more fantastic. I’m hooked now. I just wanted to let you know your site was a big help.
