Stopped by the Tri Shop to pick up my packet for my first tri of the season....open water, Olympic distance.
To my very pleasant surprise, this is the bag our sway came in! YAY for agriculture!
At the packet pickup, the very nice lady helping get my race number gave me a very interesting bit of news. Due to the high winds forecasted for tomorrow, they will be moving the swim course for the X-50 and Olympic distance in closer to shore for athlete safety. Their concern is the choppy waters and possible white caps. My swim portion is 1500 m, so instead of just one huge loop around the buoys, we would instead swim the Sprint distance course 3 times. We would swim three smaller loops and each time we would circle back to the beach, get out of the water, and run to begin the next loop. Never done a swim/run/swim/run/swim transition to bike before, but I have also never swam in open water white caps! A new experience in store for tomorrow!
