|James insisted that we get there early ;-)|
Last year I did the Golden State super sprint. It was a very short distance race and I had more than adequately trained for it. I think my fear came from the fact that I was convinced that the competition was going to destroy me. Of course I was going to get destroyed... every hardcore triathlete longs to wrap up their season with a super sprint...or so I thought.
As it turned out, my competitors were no different than I was. Most were new to the sport, many were nervous, everyone was friendly though.
There was really nothing to worry about.
What to Expect
After you check in, you will get your body markings (race number on your arms and hands, age on your calf).
You can then go into transition to set up.
|First with our markings done (since we were so early)|
|Waiting to warm up|
|Most of our group (don't know where Eric went)|
|Waiting for the start|
No fancy bike shoes necessary.

If I could make one suggestion for anyone doing their first triathlon... it would be to relax and have fun. Put a smile on your face and enjoy your race.
