    I might consider doing the dualathon since I'm joinig a mountain biking club, but not a triathlon.
    Trilove- good luck on the half tri! How are you finding the time to train for it?

    the nearest school that has a pool is too far away when you dont have a car.

    I'm probably going to do a tri this summer/spring with a friend that is a biker and a friend that made it to nationals in 12 different swimming events last year as a 11th grader.
    We are also looking for a tri-team thing were one person swims (national dude) then he tags a teamate who then bikes (biker dude) then he tags a teamate who runs (me with a huge lead because of my awesome team)

    good luck Very Happy

    I would love to do a triathalon because I do swim and run, but biking scares me too much. Last time I rode my bike, I hit a car. No

    I think it sounds like fun, but I'm not a great swimmer (I mean, I can swim fine, just not technically well). I've been thinking about trying to swim once a week though next summer for cross training. Anyway, my other problem is biking... because I don't like going really fast... so that's a problem when you're racing. And I also don't really have a good bike.
