In as well. Anyone want to carpool up to race packet pickup/bike racking Saturday? I have room for at least one more bike and I live in Arlington. Pretty flexible on time. Pre-event course talks at the hotel are 12pm and 3pm.

In for the swim and the bike. I promise not to eat all the food!

I remember when we tried to get out of swim practice whenever it rained. Then, some coach (or maybe a parent) pointed out "What are you afraid of? Getting wet?" We had to find new excuses to avoid practice after that.

Despite my better judgment, I'm in.

I'm in too - but I don't expect this to be any kind of P.R. I did a brick on the course last week and I was pretty pokey on the hills in the run. At 66 degrees (maybe lower if it rains), I'm definitely wearing my full wetsuit. I'm thinking about throwing a dry cycling jersey over my wet tri suit to keep a little warmer on the bike. It's supposed to be about 58 degrees - going down the hills in a wet tri suit could get rather chilly. Does anyone else have any ideas about that? Also, the advice about keeping the tire pressure down at about 105 psi if the roads are wet is good - I've heard that from several experienced bike racers.

I'm in the 3rd wave (old men and ladies), so I'll be cheering the rest of you on at the finish. Count me in for cookies at the tent! Good luck everyone!

I'm kayo'd for Rockett's Landing, thus pouring water for runners demanding. Have space for those Columbian bound, leaving early from Ye Olden Town. savvyveteran@gmail.com

Weather also calling for light showers until around 9AM. So looks like we might have a decent race day after all. I can deal with light showers vs torrential down pour.
