I signed up for the super sprint distance of the Chicago Triathlon. I know, I know it is so short, but I want to get my feet wet before I sign up for longer distances. I am a total newbie to the triathlon world. I have only done two 5k races and that was in the last 2.5 years. I love to swim, but had about an 8 year break while I had my 3 young boys. My youngest is approaching one-year-old now and I am trying hard to get back to a thinner, happier me. I decided to sign up for the triathlon as motivation to keep going. It would be great to find someone in the area that has done this before. I live in a south suburb of Chicago near Joliet. Any support would be appreciated.
