Find a new triathlon

So it looks like the triathlon I was planning on attending is cancelled. I found this out in the newsletter for a New Mexico based Triathlon club, The Outlaws. So that sucks, but I found a triathlon club I might want to join so that's a silver lining. Although from reading about some of the members, I don't know if I'm up to snuff. One of them does 150+ bike rides, for pete's sake. I'll keep an eye on them though and see how my training goes. I'm going to sign up for one of the other triathlons around the same time as the defunct one soon.
Speaking of training, I'm doing a lot better than I thought I would. I'm swimming a lot farther already and I'm getting better at breathing. I'm trying to keep to the techniques I read about in the book Total Immersion, which I recommend if you're into swimming and want to get better, or if you're like me and have no old habits to break and want to get better. I'm also running more and walking less in my training runs. Next is to get my flat bike tire fixed and see how much of that fitness I've lost not riding for 6 months. It's probably going to be pretty pathetic. And I'm anticipating my ass hurting, a lot. That's the price you pay for not riding.
