Top Five Most Inspirational Triathlon Videos

New Year's on TV!

Most of us don’t sign up for a triathlon because we are excited about the prospect of waking up at 5am and training in the dark. Or spending hours away from our family and friends each week.
Sure, there’s the prospect of improvement as seen in our fitness, our body composition, etc. And the lure of being able to purchase some pretty awesome gear. But at the end of the day, it’s what happens on race day that ultimately defines our triathlon experience.
To get you motivated and keep you on track, here are our Top 5 Most Inspirational Triathlon Videos.
