Though registrations for August's popular IronGirl Sprint triathlon and this weekend's Olympic Distance Columbia Triathlon are closed, there are many other sprint and Olympic triathlons in the metro Baltimore area still open. With the sprint triathlon's short distances, there is plenty of time to get into enough shape to sign up for a spring race, and fall's Olympic distance tris are attainable.
