    I've heard that there are few quality triathlons in Upstate New York. However, I'd like to hear from the veterans what triathlons they'd recommend for a total novice. Thanks in advance!

    I ran in the one at Bear mountain when I was 29. As I remember it was a 1/2 mile swim, 16 mile bike ride and a 5 mile run. Now if I may I'd like to toot my horn. I finished 15th out of 500 men and 16th overall. There was this chick who finished third overall!
