I got started in triathlon in 2012. I had humble beginnings at my first race, Toronto Triathlon Festival. I was racing in the Olympic Distance race. I finished last in the Male 20-24 age group in a time of 3:46:42. The next slowest finisher in my age group was almost 48min faster, and I finished 3rd last overall. I had no idea about proper nutrition, pacing, or training. After that race I found a group who I could do some training with, and learn, and I’ve been able to make steady improvements ever since.
