Event comments:

Small race in its first year. Just a small community race, but great for first timers. I wish there had been 1 more aid station on the run. Bike course was not closed, but traffic was stopped at each intersection. No problems there. Run was through a quiet neighborhood. Some raffles at the end, a dj, but nothing too fancy. Great race for kids (have 2 mini spints for ages 6-9, 10-13). Overall, great experience and looking forward to more tri's!

I've rested them for 6 weeks, twice. I've had Active Release Therapy, massages, I'm doing Trigger Point, and stretching. Yet, I'm still having issues and can't get above 3 miles.

Is it possible for loners to work in a small group and still have plenty of time on their own? Training in small groups can give many benefits.

Club or group workouts are very motivating and soon you’ll start feeling like a triathlete, making you less likely to flake out.
