I guess by just being on Team USA for the aquathlon this past year that it automatically qualifies me for the triathlon national championships. Two years ago I qualified and trained for it only to get injured and never got to compete. The Husband has done it and says I should do it someday. But, I don't think it will be in 2017. It's the day before we leave for vacation and I don't want to ship my bike all over the US getting to the race and to vacation. And then there's that whole....I hate to ride my bike thing.
