Tri Expertise with The Nation's Triathlon Tri Clinic Series
Author: Kristen Avioli
Like most people in this sport, I came to triathlon strong in one discipline, swimming. Post college swimming, I was looking to add variety to my exercise regime and long story short, triathlon became my sport of choice. In the last few years, the main thing I have learned is that there is always more to learn: more racing tips, techniques, training advice, and how to improve my nutrition, strength & flexibility. Clinics and information sessions are some of the best ways I have found to learn and practice techniques I would normally never think of, nor take time to do. These clinics have given me critical info that makes a huge difference in my racing and, even more importantly, the training leading up to the race. For those living in Washington, DC, The Nation’s Triathlon is offering some great clinics for triathletes of all levels. The ALL NEW Tri Clinic Series, presented by Muscle Milk, is definitely something that will give me that extra knowledge and key tricks of the trade to help me succeed and improve my skills.

Nearly 10 years later, I can tell you that I not only survived my first tri, but got hooked on an amazing sport. These training tips helped me to the finish line and hopefully will help you too. When it comes down to it, nearly anyone can complete a triathlon, including you!
