A total DUH moment

So my first triathlon of the season is June 8th, the Racing for Recovery, event. It captured my attention as I had read Todd Crandell's book, Racing for Recover From Addict to Ironman... its an interesting read really. This guy was an out and out drug and alcoholic, how he survived all he was doing is beyond me, but God had a plan for this man is all I can think of..

Anyhow I thought I skipped a cold water swim by doing the duathlon in Galena but I'm just realizing that this event is in 2 weeks and DUH its swimming in freakin' Lake Erie... from info I found yesterday, water temps are about 50 degrees right now.. I am NOT happy. Might have to bike to Ohio St beach in Chicago this weekend and get my feet wet and see if I can get my big BEhind... into my wetsuit.

Maybe we'll have a showering of really hot weather once it stops snowing???

How about the love/hate relationship we all have with wetsuits? :)

Nice job on your race this weekend!

Wear 2 or 3 swim caps and just get in and do it! Also, HTFU!

I keep hoping for a streak of nice warm weather. Good luck and it sounds like a great race.
