RACE A RELAY
Triathlon can be a head-down solo pursuit at times, but it doesn’t always need to be. If you’ve got a friend or partner that wants to get involved, but isn’t ready for the full event, then a relay is the perfect way to share the fun. One of my most memorable race experiences was at Ironman 70.3 Weymouth. My friend recently had a baby and was only bike-fit, so I got to do a beautiful sunrise swim, soaked up the atmosphere while she did the bike, then took over again for the halfmarathon. We cheered each other on and had a blast!
