Life has been crazy busy lately…training, vacations, trying to get some tasks done before summer is over and school starts back up. As a result, blogging has taken a back seat these last few weeks.
Training is going well. Only 5.5 weeks left until race day…3 weeks until the taper and I start school back up in less than 2 weeks. Where has the summer gone?!?!?!?
A couple of weeks ago, we participated in the Okoboji Triathlon. It is a non-USAT sanctioned event, which is great for your first triathlon or if you don’t want to have to remember all of the rules. As I was getting ready for this race (which just so happened to be my first triathlon of the season), I was thinking about what I put in my transition bag. For those of you doing your first triathlon in the near future, I hope you find this list beneficial.
- Swim Cap
- Body Glide
- Ear Dry
- Hoo Ha Ride Glide (sample pack)
- Bike Shoes
- Nutrition and Hydration (the amount depends on the distance of the race)
- Spare Tube, CO2 Dispenser, CO2 Cartridge
- Running Shoes
- Race Belt
- Heart Rate Strap
- Timing Chip Strap
What do you have in your transition bag?
