Ready to do your first triathlon? Then you should download the FREE The Beginner’s Race Day Guide to Triathlon, written by Krista Henderson.
There are lot of books, websites and forums out there you can explore but they primarily focus on training. Krista wrote this book based on her years of racing triathlon and has compiled this experience along with other race day tips from triathletes and coaches, into one ebook to help you through race day jitters.
I read this book before I did my first race, and it was so helpful. You’re nervous as it is going into race, so the book helped me prepare and take the worrisome out of knowing what to expect in my first race.
