Hey all,

I may have come to the wrong place, but this is also really the only forum that I take any part in anymore. I searched and found little, so here it goes...

I have come to the point in my life where my passion for rugby has been outclassed by my body's constant aches and pains. As a result, I have decided to sign up for a (sprint) Triathlon in September to keep me from getting too rotund and lazy. Any advice, training tips, must have gear - besides a road bike of course?

As someone with pretty much no endurance competition background since high school I would say that I am fit, but not likely fit for this sort of event. However, I have no doubt that I could do any of the three events right now without too much issue, though swimming is definitely my current biggest weakness. As of right now, my only goal for this first attempt is to complete the race.

Thanks in advance!
