Triathlon for Everyone interviews USA Triathlon Certified Coach Dave Burgess of Podium Training Systems about how to choose the right distance of triathlon. Not all new triathletes choose a sprint as their first race, and it's important to know if you are the kind of athlete who can move up to the next level. We also discuss whether "moving up to the next level" is really the best mindset. We cover the basics of distances, as well as more advanced concepts.
