Senior Keystone Project: Triathalon Training and Culture

Keystone Presentation Date: Thurs., May 25, 8:50-10:00 am

My Keystone documents my experience of training and competing in a triathlon for the first time. Over the past few years sports have become a significant part of my identity. Especially individual sports like running and swimming helped me build discipline and mental endurance. So for my project, I combined my love for different sports in a single multi-sport event in the form of a triathlon.

For my primary mode, I trained and did the Half Moon Bay Sprint Triathlon. For my secondary mode, I wrote a paper explaining why I, like thousands of other people, have come to love this sport. The paper explored the history, culture, and community of triathlon as well as the body-mind connection that is cultivated through endurance sports.
