Signed up for my first Triathlon!!!!

I signed up for my first triathlon!!  I'm bursting at the seams with excitement!  It's on my 30-before-30 list, but I didn't think I would do it this year until my friend told me she was going to sign up and that we should do it together!  No convincing necessary!  Done deal!  So yesterday I signed up for the Long Beach Triathlon!

And to make things even more exciting, two others are doing it with us, and it’s all our first tri!!  I have pretty much everything (running gear, swimsuit, goggles, cap) and I'm going to borrow my Dad's road bike.  So I really just need to get a helmet and a wet suit.  If anyone recommends any tri wet suits, please let me know!  

Here is the training plan we are going to use, courtesy of

I also reached out to my blogging buddy, Ms. Efo, for any tips/advice since she ran her first tri last summer.  She gave me some great tips.  Thanks Erin!!  I really appreciate it!!

If you guys have any advice or tips for a tri newbie, please let me know in the comments or email me at Love 2 Mags (@) gmail dot com.  I'd really appreciate it!

Weeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D


  1. I have an Xterra Vortex wetsuit and it's great. However, wetsuits are SUPER expensive (like $400-800), so if you're planning on doing many tri's in the future, go for it and buy one! If not, I'd recommend just renting from a local tri shop or renting one online from Xterra. Good luck!

  2. So exciting! Have fun training and racing!
