Subject: What on feet at beginning?

Tomorrow is my first tri- oly. May seem like a stupid question, but what do I wear on my feet after I set up my transition spot? It is a wetsuit tri and I dont know if I wear flip flops to the event or my running shoes and leave them and then go barefoot? Loved marathons, nothing to think about....

Keep it simple, just wear your running shoes to transition.  Keep all the extra's in the car for afterward.

I usually bring a pair of old Crocs and wear them up till they close transition and then just go barefoot to the swim start.  I've seen lost of folks buy the cheapest flip flops they can find, and discard them as they get towards the water.

I wore my tennis shoes to my first tri but then after getting (almost) everything set up in transition I was wishing I had brought some flip flops so I could put my shoes and socks down and be done with it.  Needless to say, I now wear flip flops then walk barefoot to the swim. 

Good luck and have fun tomorrow!!!!!
