┬áRunning is the section of the race which is usually the least intimidating to aspiring triathletes. While freestyle swimming hundreds of yards through a thrashing crowd of competitors in an open water environment can unsurprisingly inspire terror, nearly everyone with the athletic background to attempt a race is confident in their ability to lace up a pair of shoes and put one foot in front of the other. The good news is that, yes, once you reach the run, the odds of equipment failure are nearly nil, and I usually breathe a sigh of relief when dismounting my bike. From here on out, it’s solely up to me whether I succeed or fail.
