OK Now that I have your attention. Ok so the new beau wants me to come watch him in his half Ironman May 8th. So I say watch me ya mean...and now of course I think I am a triathlete. So I have been working up to fixing to get ready to train. I have been running for a month or so and am finally up to 4 miles. (I already bike - maybe only on weekends but have done about 5 -7 Centuries this year and will be doing Winter Base riding soon too) So I figure each month I will increase my run until the end of April and I should hopefully be able to do the run (which to me seems like the hard part). So if I can do that - then I am on for this race. My goal would be to finish -not actually race.
So my concerns here are about outfits and transitions....
My thought is to do this in comfort. So if I do swim in a pair of tri shorts (Do they make them for XL women???) and a tri shirt or tankini....- I think I would like to wear a biking shirt for the bike -and a sports bra. Is it possible just to change in the Transition area- do women do this??? I imagine the last thing I want to worry about is exposing myself..so just wondered what people do?? Is it comfortable to wear the same top in the water as on the bike??It will be 85ish (Panama City Beach May 8th) so I suppose that would work... I absolutely need a heavy duty running bra - but just wondered if it would be wise to swim with it or somehow put it on in the Transition area...how do women do that??
OK - so thoughts on transition..changing shirts....tri shorts/shirts for XL gals....etc.
