Yes, thanks! It was invaluable -- I can't imagine doing a tri without that kind of practice -- and the great tips!

Ditto...the DC Tri Club ROCKS!!!

I've struggled with open water, and today - I had a huge psychological breakthrough. Simon, thanks for your encouragement...I just needed to believe I could do it...

Tri Peeps are so awesome...a million times, thank you to everyone who instructed/supported/encouraged, and so nice to talk with others who were making their own break-throughs in the confidence department!

Thanks to Tammy too for the pointers.


That's one fast group of new triathlete swimmers. Darn good form too!

the ntp people did very well in the swim today.

good clear instructions came from simon and ed.

Just stay calm, relax, and have faith in your training and you will all thoroughly enjoy race day and do well.

Desperately seeking....a swim coach and my clothes! :) The OWS was....humbling but an important hurdle nonetheless. So I am really looking for some one-on-one swim coaching - anyone? Also, somehow lost my black drawstring capri pants and a white hooded top so please check your bags! Thanks to all the support and positive feedback, especially Ed and Simon!

I like it, but I don't have much to compare it to. I think compared to other wetsuits it pulls on your shoulders less so your arms feel a bit more free and there's less neoprene-ride-up (I have short legs and a long torso, so the wetsuit I rented last time was...invasive and uncomfortable). And it's nice to have the flexibility of switching out short/long sleeves.

I can tell you the company was fantastic - I bought mine on sale from some random website and realized it was not returnable and the wrong size. I called Desoto, they were really helpful over the phone and they sent me a new one in the right size - no charge at all even though I didn't buy it from them in the first place and had worn the wrong one to the pool!

thanks for the review was wondering how the sleevelss one was.

i have tehe long sleeve one and have to agree that the company is the best customer service there is.

cool thing is if you have a major complaint or compliment and ask to speak to emilio desoto, he will actually answer your call and/or call you back. that is something you never hear of.

Thanks to Tammy for organizing! Sharing in transformational travels together is worth it, and I am better for your company and thoughts. You are competent waterbugs with a gleam in your eyes. If you get a chance, volunteer to help your fellow triathletes at the many opportunities posted on our site. See ya out there, beyond where average folks dwell...
Simon
