Before it ever occurred to me that I'd be doing a DIY triathlon, I signed up at my local YMCA for a triathlon they were putting on. I have been a member for a very long time, so this was something that was exciting for me. I'd get to swim in a pool I swim in all the time, ride my bike on roads I ride on all the time, and then run through neighborhoods where I actually know whose house I’m passing. But, the big thing with this event is it’s very hard to get people to come to a triathlon in June that has an indoor swim.
