    New to triathlons and bike forums

    Hey everyone. I'm new to bike forums, but have used this site in the past to look for answers for questions so I decided to join since I tend to have a lot of questions.

    I just bought a road bike and am getting into Sprint distance triathlons. Just finished my first one yesterday. Woo Hoo I'm still alive. Was bummed about my bike time split and can't wait to get some advice from people in the same boat.

    Looking forward to learning lots.

    Welcome to the forum! Though I'm only a cyclist and have never done a triathlon, I still think it's amazing that people can run immediately after cycling. For me, once I get off the bike, I'd like to have an ice cream cone!

    My one word for triathlons is PAIN.

    Thanks for joining.

    It is a very weird feeling getting off the bike and going straight to running. Legs feel like jello and you think it will get better throughout the run, but it really doesn't.. Running is my least favorite of the 3 events, and of course it's last after you are exhausted. It's a great feeling when you finish though. Worth the pain.
