For the second year in a row my brother Greg and I made the trip out to Montauk for the MightyMan Sprint Triathlon. The “sprint triathlon” is the easy way to say you’re a triathlete. You can be like me – not train at all and still finish in under an hour and a half. There are some serious athletes that participate in the MightyMan, but for the most part it’s your average person enjoying the challenge of the race.
If you’re looking to get that first triathlon under your belt, the MightyMan Sprint is a great one to start out with. The weather is cool and the water is still warm. The town fills up with people (most there for the race), but overall Montauk itself is beautiful enough to warrant the trip out east.
