There are three ways you can do this:

Once you've documented your triathlon, we would really appreciate it if you could email it to us and write "First Triathlon Story" in the subject line. We will post it with the hopes of inspiring other beginner triathletes to try their first triathlons. Send along a bunch of pictures too so we can see you in action!!!
