Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Do you like to run, road bike, and paddle? Perfect! Join me at the Alleghany Highlands Triathalon!
This is my first-ever triathalon; I am not an expert trainer, and I am more excited about doing my three favorite sports than winning first place. The main purpose of this trip (for me) is to carpool and camp together, and to HAVE FUN. If I find that the people who sign up want to set up group training schedules in preparation for the race, we can arrange that too.
