    I Did The Sprint Triathlon

    A few years ago, I was a bit out of shape and decided to set a goal of completing a sprint triathlon. It required a lot of training -- swimming especially -- as I had never taken swimming lessons. I could swim, but my stroke needed a lot of improvement. I had done quite a bit...
