Here at Life of a Triathlete we want to teach; that’s our mission; to decrease the time it takes for triathletes to reach their goals. Mindful of our philosophy, we also believe our blog can be used to encourage change (which is a form of teaching) in the sport we love; this is the reason for this current blog entry.

For our inaugural blog post, we want to dispel the myth that pro triathletes just train, sleep and race. We are responding to a comment we read posted in response to a Triathlete Magazine photo shoot. They thought it was discouraging to see a pro triathlete running through a park midday when everyone else was working. They then went on to proclaim the magazine should showcase more working people. It got us thinking that there is a misconception floating around as to what pro triathletes actually do during the day (we will dissect this in greater detail in or soon to be released Life of a Triathlete manuals). We do not think the comment came from a malicious place, just one of misinformation and not knowing the triathlete’s ‘daily’ job.
