When I started, running was my primary obstacle not only because I had never done it before but also because of my high weight and knee issues. I started with the sprint triathlons (0.5mi swim, 12mi bike, 3mi run), then moved on to the olympic distance triathlons (1mi swim, 25mi bike, 6mi run). My next goal is the half ironman which is a 1.2 mile swim, 56mile bike ride, and a half marathon and I plan on doing one next spring. Since...
