Arrow Triathlon training

Anyone hear done a triathlon before? I'm looking to get my feet wet--I've never even ran a 5k before but I'm interested in a short-course, sprint-type triathlon that can introduce me to the sport. I'm in pretty good shape and swim 3 days a week.

1) Any advice on which triathlons to pick?

2) How can I go about training?

3) Any other words of advice or stories?
