A most exciting start to the Tri. The swim into the open sea is not as easy as it seems. There are the current and waves to begin with, as well as the clashing and battling of swimming in close proximity.
Running is the last stage, and by this time, one is pretty spent. Its about endurance here and it shows on the face. If you have to run out of energy, this is the safest stage. You just walk, instead of drown or fall from your bike!
