A half-way house for those of us who like the idea of fitting three sports in one costume, but who don't necessarily want to be too dedicated. Discuss.

I thought we were going to hear all your pearls of wisdom as a a seasoned Sprint Triathlete in here :P I think it (a triathlon) is something that should be done once is a lifetime and so if time only allows for a sprint one then all well and good :-)

Bugger, that doesn't really add too much to any discussion does it.

I fear this is the easy way to the dark side. It starts with a 'little taster', and the next thing you know you have remortgaged the cat for a pair of aero bars.

I've spat them all out already. But we're doing it again in October, so I thought it'd be nice to have a newbie place for our wittering.

It's an insiduous, invasive and progressive condition is triathlon. Complete abstinence is the only defence.

The only remaining debate, once Fetch crosses the line in the sprint, is whether his first Ironman will be one of the European races, or a UK one.

My timeline from first sprint completed, to handing over 450 Euros for that starting slot was a mere 3 and bit months.
