We have our kids with us this weekend so I think we are going to have to figure out Friday's dinner last minute depending on our kid's mood. So it looks like I'm out.

That's so cool although you should let the writer know that Bjorn won the race last year (not Lovato)

It will be very fun to see the Lessing vs Bjorn show down. Anyway, see later

For all parties concerned: apparently dinner plans have fizzled.  Emily - apologies - we didn't have your cell phone #, but we've left a message with the hostess. 

See you tomorrow milling around registration!  I'll have my orange and blue GSTC shirt on.

The weather is getting cold, much colder than recent forecasts!!  Well, at least for my standards it's cold.  This will be coldest I've been in since maybe early March!

For Sunday morning: 6 am-50F    9am-58F

I've never ridden my bike while wet in 55 degree weather.  I'm a bit concerned about freezing on first part of the ride.  I'm planning on picking up a pair of arm warmers, and maybe wearing socks on the bike.

Anyone else making changes based on the weather?  Maybe more nutrition from gels and less from liquid?

Hey all,  Look for me around registration tomorrow afternoon, too.  I'll be the only 6'0" blonde in a Wheelworks Multisport t-shirt and would love to see husky, jorge, lobstergirl, and other BT'ers on the scene. 
Cheers, -Sunny

I noticed the cooler shift in the weather, too, but won't change much as a result.  My nutrition will be the same -- gels and Gu2O.  I just probably won't need the e-caps since it won't be even remotely "hot". 

As for clothing, I'll bring my windbreaker, but probably will NOT wear it.  I'm used to riding in cool weather off of the bike on Tu/Th mornings here in New England, so it's really nothing to worry about.  If it turned rainy and windy like last year's Timberman, that'd trigger real changes, but a little coolness on the bike is no problem.

No worries, but hey, arm warmers couldn't hurt..

Best of luck to you, -Sunny

Our teeth will be chattering coming out of T1, but once we hit those first hills I'm sure we'll warm right up!

The only thing I may modify if I does stay very cool would be the amount of water I'm drinking, but I'll still be using carbopro and a few bananas.

I took one last test ride this morning and noticed the crisper air - I immediately thought about putting on a long sleeve shirt or warmers coming out of the water, but within 10 minutes was quite warm, so I think I'll opt against it.  I might opt for socks however.  A note of caution - there were strong gusts of wind so in wide open spots, I had to be a little careful in aero. 

Heading up to registration now.  See everyone later!

Hey K, it's very nice to know that I'm not the only one who stuggles to stay steady in aero when the gusts and cross-winds come up.   

As it turns out, the wind really waited until the afternoon to pickup in earnest; the morning was OK, but I got very chilly even in broad daylight because of my soggy clothes after the race ended.  More about that in my RR...

And did you see me/wish me luck at some point?  I recall a lady in a GSTC jersey or similar, saying "Good job, Sunny" and I didn't think I recognized her/you??

Cheers, -Sunny
