Get up, get moving and get to what's next

Jeff Dauler, a radio host from Atlanta, Georgia, is one of seven CNN viewers selected to be a part of the Fit Nation Triathlon Challenge program. In the week leading up to the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, each of the "Lucky 7" will share his or her thoughts on the journey.

About halfway through our training trip to Kona, Hawaii, all the athletes were called to one of the CNN staff rooms at the resort. There was a surprise waiting for us; the Fit Nation organizers LOVE surprises.

In that room, we were all handed packages that contained our official race uniforms. In the triathlon world, it is called a "kit." It's shorts and a tank top that you wear during all three sports: under your wetsuit in the swim, on the bike and during the run.

It's skin tight.
