FYI I started a triathlon forum.
Here is the link. You will probably have to register. (Chose your member name carefully as you will be stuck with it.)
I just figured since so many of us have begun training and there seems to be a high interest in tri-ing in general that it might be a good place to swap info, get training feedback and most importantly to ask questions --and God knows that I have a bazillion questions.
Right now it is not private but I might change that or I might just close it if there is no interest.
