Let the Freak Outs Begin!!!!

Welp, the big race is tomorrow.  Physically, I know I am ready.  Mentally, well, there is some freaking out going on.  Most of the anxiety is due to the air temp...42 at the start, high of 64.  Sounds awesome if I was just running, but getting out of the water an onto the bike is the challenge.
 
I've gone through the possibilities in my head:
  • Arm warmers and gloves?
  • Arm warmers and a wind breaker?
  • Just a wind breaker?
  • Just a long sleeved dri-fit shirt?
  • A long sleeved dri-fit shirt with arm warmers underneath?
  • A thicker half-zip dri-fit shirt?
See?  The possibilities are endless!  Ugh!

 
Jeeze, running is so much less complicated!!!

So, the good news is that if I don't freeze on the bike, it will be awesome weather for a run!

Tri Peep, Shannon, and me...this shiznit is about to get real!  Ack!

And a quick thank you to my awesome co-workers who sent the gorgeous good luck flowers to me on Thursday!

Hope things went well and you didn't freeze to death coming out of the water.
