I definitely enjoy biking the most, but I run more often. Swimming is quite difficult to fit into a schedule. I've joined a local ocean swimming club (who are on a hiatus until Memorial Day) to motivate me to get out there. I'll probably pick up a tri suit in the spring, as my infusion set tape and CGM transmitter tape fall off after 15 minutes of continued swimming if they aren't covered with a shirt or wetsuit.
Have you done many tris for TNN recently? Finish any fulls in 8 hours? haha. I have competed in 3 sprints over the last few years, but now that I'm actually a USAT member, I have to make that $135 back in smaller race fees.
So, what does being listed as a Tri athlete for TNN mean? Is it a loose association where they send you gear and invite you to getaways? Is it a full time gig with Elite Tri expectations and a salary? How is that working out for you? I'd love to race in TNN kit as an official member, and I'm sure if I trained enough I could at least get good positions in my AG, but I don't have the time for "training enough", so I'll just be a "finisher" at the sprints I do.
