Cast of Characters
Patrick (me) – IT guy and former meat-head. I was practically sedentary from graduation from high school to a couple of months ago. I did the customary 3x a week in the weight room to look good.
Sarah – My wife. She is the one that dragged me into this mess. Sarah has done a few sprints and an Olympic distance triathlon, compared to me she is a salty veteran.
Don – One of our training partners. He too has done a few triathlons and is a fantastic runner.
Sabrina – Another one of our training partners and Don’s wife. She has also done a few triathlons and is a solid runner as well.
Tri Team – The four of us are part of a triathlon training team attached to our gym. There are other people in this team but I don’t know them totally well quite yet and some are just coming off of the fall hiatus.
Nicole – Our coach. An ironman finisher and multiple half-ironman finisher, Nicole is one of the few personal trainers I respect. She and her husband walks the walk, bikes the bike, and swims the swim.
