If you’ve had the idea of a trying a triathlon zooming around in your head, this is your summer to put together the swim, bike, and run. Dimity and co-host Sarah Wassner Flynn, along with Train Like a Mother Triathlon coaches Liz Waterstraat and Jen Harrison, talk through the basics of starting a triathlon.

The four convince you by chatting about:
—How to overcome the barriers to swimming, often the hardest discipline for beginners;
—Why you don’t need to overinvest in any equipment, especially a bike;
—Why your body will likely thrive on mixing up your running training;
—and the in-person, really fun Race Like a Mother program at The Forge triathlon outside of Chicago this summer.
