I became a triathlete again.
Now, it could be said I never stopped being a triathlete since May 11, 2013 when I crossed the finish line at the Waukee Y Pieathlon Sprint. But the intervening five years were less than impressive.
This year it is my intention to race every single central Iowa indoor triathlon. And this will be a season-long indoor triathlon race report. Winter is the perfect time for me to focus on triathlon. And I want to share my love the unique sport of indoor triathlon with you.
I began getting active in 2009 and immediately gravitated to the sport of triathlon. I love all aspects of it... balancing the three sports, all the cool gear, figuring out just how fast I can change my shoes! But gradually I began focusing on mountain biking and now devote all my summers to that sport.

Indoor triathlons are many things to many people: a pleasant winter diversion, an unintimidating opportunity to try a first triathlon, the only chance to participate in triathlon because the summer is too busy with another sport... Well, that last one may only apply to me.
Indoor triathlons are held in workout facilities and consist of a pool swim, the use of an exercise bike, and a run on either a treadmill or indoor track. If you haven't tried one, you should consider it.

The Walnut Creek YMCA began hosting the Ice Breaker Triathlon in 2008 as a way to raise funds for their Annual Campaign, which supports those who are unable to otherwise afford memberships and programs at the Y. This year they added an additional beneficiary to the fundraising: Girls on the Run. "Girls on the Run of Polk County is a 10 week physical activity-based positive youth development program that inspires girls in 3rd—5th grade to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running."
