You have a job. You have a family. You signed up for a triathlon. You want to get a great time and still balance other important parts of your life. How do you manage it all?
This past summer, we talked to some of the best age-groupers in the NY/CT area to see how they manage the balance.

Our conversations netted ten tips that allowed people like us to excel at work, home, and triathlon:
- Get a Plan
- Train Consistently
- Know the Course
- Eat Right Before the Race
- Get Plenty of Rest
- Pack Everything the Night Before
- Visualize Success
- Pace Yourself
- Don't Panic
- Don't Let One Problem Ruin the Day
