Blue Water Triathlon in Parker, Arizona. Sunday November 9, 2008.
I'll be doing the Sprint: .6k swim, 15k bike and 4k run.
The bike leg I'm not worried about. I've run longer distances in the past, but I'll need to train for the 4k. The swim is what I think might whoop me. It's only .37 miles, but I'm still worried. I won't be surprised if I finish dead last, but my goal is not to place in the event. I just want to finish!
I'll be riding my hybrid bike. I may have my road bars by then, but I'm not going to count on it. I probably won't have a wetsuit or anything, either. Does the term FRED transfer over to Triathlons?
Any pointers or advice from anybody? I'll take all that I can get. I know there are some Clydes on here that have done a few.
Anybody else close to Parker, Arizona? Maybe I'll see somebody there?
