Whether it's a triathlon, duathlon (bike and run), or aquathon (swim and run). Women, as well as men, are flocking to the sport. The Danskin Women's Triathlon Series, the longest-running series of its kind, began in 1990 with three races and 150 participants. In 2005, Danskin hosted eight races and had almost 5,100 participants. And the numbers continue to grow.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Triathlon Trainingis the perfect book for anyone wanting to participate in any of these events. Written by two "regular guys" who took up the sport as a lark, they, like the other hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts got hooked and compete regularly. This book is filled with the inside tips, practical advice, and dozens of photos that triathlete will find useful, no matter what level experience he or she has.
