Next event is my season opening triathlon in Park Rapids, Minnesota way up high in The Tundra. Want to know why I call Minnesota The Tundra? By the time my swim wave takes off Saturday morning (OK, indoor pool swim...we're not stupid) the outdoor conditions will be thus:
That's right, I'll leave the pool dripping wet only to head outside and be greeted by winds out of the NW at 21-22 MPH with the temp hovering around 39-degrees. Toss in a wind-chill of 29-degrees and my T1 time may be a just a tad bit longer since I'll have to throw on the winter Gortex just to survive.
It ought to be a blast.
