I am seeing a pattern here... quit slackin'!  Don't let that skinny-polka-dotted-youngster keep treating you that way! HA!

evondo - 2010-06-01 11:32 AM I bet you're the one who beat me to entry dang it! Good luck, not that you need it

smilford - 2010-06-01 11:18 AM Alright, I just got in! So I'll be out there!

You trying to pull the 'quit slackin' card, seriously?!?!? HA! 

Wish I could race but don't want to spend the $$$ and have one next weekend. Betsy and I might make it out there to cheer all you folks on, if not good luck to all... Including the polka-dot haters, Justin!

I'd say near transition area... they'll get to see the swim, bike start/finish and run start/~1mi into run/finish.

cycleologist - 2010-06-02 8:25 AM anyone know where the best place is to set up the family to watch this event?

a bit off topic, but in preparation for the swim segment of Tejas I'm going down to lake 288 Friday round 3-3:30ish for some OW swim practice.  Anyone is welcome to join me.

I think doing this before my last  tri helped with the pre-swim anxiety.    I suppose my mind had fresh memories of swimming in  murky waters.  I think I'll keep the tradition going.

If it's murky water you're looking for look no further than Bridgelands - save gas and $7 Smile
Not a bad idea as I am supposed to swim Friday anyway.

I don't mind the drive and I like 288.  Bridgelands would have to be a bandit swim.  Have you been by Towne Lake recently? That may be a better location.  See my previous post or check out photos in my album.  
IF I can get swim buddies  to jump in with me Smile I am not opposed to swimming locally on this side of town.  I've been talking with Fatty and Trin2Bfast to scout it with me but our schedules have not worked out.   Towne Lake still has a bunch of unknowns but heck if they are doing an Oly and sprint there in September, it should be OK.   I'm not keen on swimming solo in places I have not swam before even if is just a neighborhood lake.

There is a playground and a covered area right next to the transition area that is where my wife and kids are going to be, I am sure.  It is very close to the finish as well.

I'm sweating just thinking about the temps and lucky me gets to start in the last swim wave!  More motivation to get done fast.  It can't be worse than Clearlake International in August last year....the sun and the heat were brutal by the time I finished.  Good luck everybody!

In really hot weather is best to hammer the bike balls out so when you melt on the run it doesn't matter.

That's my plan at least. Hotter the better!

Not sure I'm feeling your tactic. I'm thinking I'm just going to plan on not dying! Yep. Best strategy for me!
