Transition 1

Comments:

It was nice being able to practice a "relaxed" transition. I decided to go sockless today. Had some sand on the bottom of my left bike shoe so it didn't want to clip in right away.
What would you do differently?:

Take off swim cap and goggles while running on beach instead of waiting until I got to my bike

I went sockless today and it was great! I biked with Emily and Bryan - Emily knew the loop that we were taking,so I caught up to her. I was amazed at how nice the trail system was (except for a small area) and loved how the bike trail was different than the run/walk trail.
Transition 2
  • 02m 30s
Comments:

I didn't take my helmet off right away, but could do so in the future. I decided to go sockless on the run also.

Comments:

I ran with Emily around Lake Calhoun - we had a good time chatting...it is so much easier to run in pain when running with another person in pain :)
Post race
Warm down:

I am going to go sockless on the bike from now on, but not on the run - I got 3 blisters on my feet. They didn't hurt until after I stopped running.

Event comments:

I'm glad we all got together today to meet each other's families and train. Thanks to Emily & Tom for getting the details worked out and to everyone for all the great food and beverages!!!

Nora, good to see you again.  The water WAS cold.  Glad you had a great sockless ride, and YES it does help to run with someone when you know you're both in pain...

It was nice to meet you yesterday Nora, what a great event to be able to practice things like going sockless and seeing what works and what doesn't.  We'll have to do this again next year.  Look forward to seeing you at Minneman.
