Pollereno recommends starting with a sprint distance race or shorter. “Putting the swim, bike, run together is still a challenge for beginners, but it’s not so overwhelming where you’re paralyzed by how to start training, and all of the gear,” she says. “You will learn so much just going through a triathlon, and the experience will add to the knowledge you can put to use at your next event.”
