Driving a Green Nissan Titan and will have a Red Specialized Allez, and I'm sure I'll be looking lost.

Just taping 3 gels to my bike and one bottle of water. Only doing the mini aqua bike though !

Gatorade on the bike and one gel is my plan.

On the run I usually choose between water and a sports drink based on how I feel, energy and stomach-wise.

But then I weigh 120 and burn a lot fewer calories than you menfolk.

I just got some water temp info for this weekend. At what depth do they take readings to decide if it is wetsuit legal or not? I will be bringing mine along just in case I get to use it.

It's supposed to be really cool Sat and Sun.

I am bringing my wetsuit just in case.

Also a long-sleeved shirt! I've been racing in a bra top all year, but I am afraid I'll be freezing!

HFP will usually let you wear it either way, but if it is above the cutoff temp and you wear one, you have to forfeit your age group prize or overall prize.

It was wet-suit legal last year and it was much much warmer all summer long. You really don't need to worry about it.

This is my first race with HFP that is outside, so I had no idea how they dealt with the water temp and wetsuit.

there is a tiny chance you would not be able to use it, but in my 4 years of knowing and racing with shannon i have never seen him not allow them.
