But ... bloody well done A marathon is tough (once did a half marathon. And I walked half of that) as it is but I always thought the triathalon type would be more difficult because they cover three different athletic disciplines.
Seriously, the best of good wishes. And remember - it's not how you finish but the fact that you do. Though aim to walk over the finish line. I did a teeny bit of crawling and whimpering
Good luck! You going to be running/cycling/swimming for any particular cause?
I was thinking of doing a marathon/half marathon whilst I am still young and (relatively) fit. Not sure if I would ever do a triathlon though - reckon I could cope with the swimming and running but cycling is something I hate!
A co-worker/friend of mine is getting me interested in doing the half-iron man. Running and biking is not a problem, swimming is because I don't swim. I have been a long distance runnner for most of my life. My favorite distance is the half-marathon in which I always sprint at the end. Anyway, good luck the triathalon and hang in there!
