So it looks like it's going to be cold and rainy tomorrow...any tips for avoiding feeling cold, wet, and uncomfortable for the whole race...
On the bike, you could wear arm warmers if you have them.
On the run, you can put on a sleeved tech shirt over the tri jersey and/or arm warmers.
67F shouldn't feel too cold. Then again, it's been a while since we've had temperatures like that. I think I've forgotten what it's like to ride or run in sub-70 temperatures.
If you are wearing a wetsuit, just wear that while you wait to start. It will keep you warm, and you should otherwise be good to go for the race.
If it looks like it's going to be rainy during your bike portion, I would recommend deflating your tires a bit (if you normally pump up to 110 psi, i would suggest going down to 100psi or thereabouts). This will give you a bit better traction on the road during your ride.
Thanks for the tips guys!
I think I have done more tris in the rain than in any other weather. At least those are the ones that stick out.
The most difficult part of the weather yesterday was standing around in transition during the pre-race showers. And walking around after the race. (Somehow missed getting one of the foil blankets they were handing out.) I never got cold during the race itself. It was only when I wasn't moving that I got a little cold.
I had a great time overall, except for the fact that I had a lot of trouble trying to get the wetsuit off in T1 and trying to get my soaked socks on in T2. Next time I'll leave my socks in a plastic bag until T2. I can dry my feet off on a towel and then put the dry socks on easily. Lesson learned.
