    I can swim but not in any organized manner, so I think I would be crazy but triathletes aren't. If I ever get the notion to take swimming lessons I might try one and a du is not out of the question.

    I cried for a large portion of the run in my first triathlon, and it was a super sprint. I was hooked though. I'm planning on 5 sprint's and 1 oly this year. Next year I want to do a HIM.

    Uh, I watched a superlong triathalon on television a few weeks ago. Think it was the world championships.

    It looked brutal. Florida humidity...

    Does that count

    That's what Super Sprints are for! Just to get your feet wet and have fun!
