Tonight I need to pack for my last triathlon of the season, the Wilmington YMCA triathlon (even though it's in Wrightsville Beach...). It's an odd 'sprint' - 1500 meter swim (with a current), 12 mile bike, 5K run, all very flat. Last year after doing this race, I swore I wouldn't do it again because the bike has a ton of potholes and the run is boring and mostly on a sidewalk. But after my very abbreviated season, I quickly decided I wanted IN! It's going to be a very competitive race and I'm looking forward to it. The race also starts early, at 7am, which means it will barely be sunrise. Nothing like swimming in the ocean at dawn! (i.e. shark feeding time, hee hee). Unfortunately, it doesn't look like a wetsuit is in the cards, so I guess I'm just going to have to swim my butt off without it.
