For me, learning how triathlons worked by participating on a relay was the perfect introduction to the sport. I was very comfortable with swimming (not at all comfortable biking or running) and was terribly anxious about what the transition area would be like. By doing just a bit of the race, I was able to see for myself how it would all play out so if and when I decided to do a full triathlon (I did, obviously!) I would feel more comfortable.
