I had no idea a biathlon was skiing and shooting. I thought it would be a triathlon (typically biking, swimming, and running) with one less of its events like maybe running and swimming!
I was looking for my next athletic challenge as I have done some half-marathons and I was hoping for something that didn't involve buying too much equipment. I had thought about triathlons; however, those bikes are actually quite expensive!
I hadn't looked at bicycle prices since I was a kid so I am still not over the sticker shock of the price of specialty racing cycles!
So I thought biathlon events (again thinking it might be running and swimming) might be my next challenge. But I don't think here in small town North Carolina that I will be able to train for skiing and shooting! Well maybe the shooting, I have found quite a few people like to skeet shoot here!
Also, it looks like biathlons require specific biathlon equipment too, so since that is the case I might as well buy a bike!
I have also heard about a duathlon is that the same thing as a biathlon?
