Signed up for my 1st TRI and am really looking forward to it. Any comments or advice on this race? My goal is to simply finish the course with a smile on my face!!

Would love to hear about any Hammerfest experiences (good or bad).

I've done the race once, about 3 years ago. Tempted to sign up again this year, depending on how I feel. I'm doing Madison the wknd before.

It's a smaller event than what I'm used to (maybe 250 people), but very well-run. Lots of food/drink, some vendors. I really nice atmosphere. The run is 4 miles (I didn't realize this and was wondering when the run would ever end. lol) through the coastal neighborhood. Very nice. I don't know if it's still an issue, but there were a couple of spots where people started running down the wrong street (wasn't marked well).

Overall, I only have good memories of the event. And you're also helping support a great cause.

those are both my local races. I live in Guilford and belong to the groups who put those races on. I'm not really doing tris this year (just riding mostly) but great groups of people and hammerfest has a nice little course for you on your first one. Good luck. I'll probably be riding around and helping out so if you see a guy in a Zanes Kit watching yell hello!

I'm going to let you in on how to get faster by doing nothing. Well, not exactly nothing, but you won't have to raise your heart rate, put out 300 watts, or really even break a sweat.

I quickly browsed an article in Men's Health that talked about doing a triathlon, and how it wasn't really that hard. With a "tsk!" I quickly turned the page while thinking, "Yeah, right!"

The question was “Can you Train for a Triathlon and do Atkins at the same time?” YES! YOU CAN!!!
