Since my very first thought of doing my very first triathlon, I have been Googling. I Googled events, I have Googled techniques, I Googled my gear, I have Googled blog names… the list is endless. How did the world ever evolve past The Paleolithic Era without Google?
I guess we always had word of mouth and that is what I intend to employ here. I am listing some of the useful sites I’ve found, below. Feel free to click on them and make use of them if you’re searching for similar information.
