I’m surrounded by endurance athletes. Jenn and Tish both cranked out a marathon. My younger brother is running marathons in under three hours. And he’s even inspired my older brother to run the 26.2 as well. I’m thinking it would be fun to train for a 5K once I’m ready to start a new exercise routine and lose the baby weight.
While a 5K seems doable without being crazy (especially with a baby!), one endurance event that makes me cower in fear is the triathlon. But I know some of you readers are hard-core athletes, training as I type for events like the Iron Girl triathlons, of which there are multiple events around the country coming up.
And just in case you’re in need of some inspiration, we’re giving away a gift bag loaded with goodies to help your triathalon endeavors and post-workout pampering, thanks to Iron Girl and Fitness magazine. We’re talking foot soak, body wash, socks—and the opportunity to sign up for an upcoming race in Lake Tahoe, Calif., Boulder, Colo., or Racine, Wis., with a friend. Comment below for a chance to win the goodie bag and be sure to check out Iron Girl for loads of triathalon tips and inspiration!
