Subject: RE: Lone Star Triathlon Festival - Sprint
Im curious about the swimming. I don't plan on wearing a wetsuit this weekend. Seems too short, and well....I don't own one. 72 isn't terribly cold, just cold enough to be glad when you get out....right?
It depends on your tolerance of cold water. I saw some people who thought it was cold enough to be hugging themselves, so maybe I'm just used to colder water than you Texas folks, but I was actually glad I wasn't wearing my wetsuit--probably would have been too warm. As it was, I thought the water felt great. I've been in pools that were colder.
If you don't already have a wetsuit, I wouldn't buy one just for this race. You might be a little chilly, depending on how cold you like your water, but it'll be over pretty quickly. And anyway, in the excitement of the race you probably won't even notice it.
