Who wants to be a triathlete?

Test your fitness limits but not your pocketbook when you learn how to train for a triathlon November 28 at a complimentary fitness session at the Williamsburg Lodge. Connie Glueck, certified aquatics instructor, first degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and triathlete, will conduct the informative session in the Lodge conference center Allegheny Room from 6 – 7 p.m.

Triathlons are multi-sport events that include swimming, bicycling and running. “Triathlons are for athletes of all ages and fitness levels and are a great way for people to increase their competitive edge and experience the thrill of crossing the finish line,” says Amy Scanlin, fitness manager for The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg.

Triathlons come in a variety of lengths – from sprint to iron man – and can be enjoyed by the whole family. The informative session will offer tips on how to get started in training, equipment suggestions and how to fit training into today’s busy lifestyles.

For more information on the free training session which is open to the public, contact Amy Scanlin at 220-7479 or by e-mail at
