I love long rides on country roads on the weekends, and am actively working to improve my hill climbing this year. I'm still coming up with my racing plan for this year, but will likely focus on 1/2 iron distance races, and refuse to sign up for anything more than a month or so in advance.

My best non-triathlon advice is: Smile, and everything becomes easier.
