What to wear to your triathlon
OK, I'm more excited about the race now. The weather looks a little crappy (68 degrees, rain possible), but I had a great bike/run workout this week, and swimming is a breeze, so it's all good. Started packing up stuff. I have fancy socks. They are labeled "L" and "R" so you know that's quality stuff. Recently bought new running shoes, bike odometer, googles, the shirt and shorts. I tested them all out. Should be good.
Here's my list:
Water Bottles (filled)
Bike (important!) with pump and spare tube
Clothing to change into post-race, sandals
Two towels (one to stand on, one to dry)
Disposable warm clothing for waiting to start
Map, info sheet
Race number, timing chip with strap
Bucket to sit on (shut up. I'm old now.)

Apparently, all the cool kids will be wearing wetsuits (as usual), but I have once again decided that since this is my last! triathlon! EVER!!! there is no point in buying one.
