Couldn’t have asked for a better morning to have a triathlon, even better yet, my longest race so far. Weather was perfect and everything was shaping up for a good day. The race started at 8:00 a.m. We had to take a shuttle to the swim start, and then we would swim across the lake. This race was wetsuit legal, which is kind of odd for this time of year in Iowa. This would also be my first time wearing a wetsuit in a race. Note to self: “Apply body glide to the back of the neck!” I got a nice little mark from the wetsuit rubbing. Nothing major though.
