24 April 2006

Maybe someday I'll actually do a full triathlon. The "college nationals triathlon" I attended in Reno this weekend had the swim eliminated because it was too cold. Instead, we ran, then biked, then ran some more. The real shame in all of this wasn't that they prevented us from swimming - the water really was too cold for the event to go off safely - but that the thing was scheduled in Reno in April in the first place, and the people who arranged it should have been well aware that it was too cold to handle outdoor swimming. (The original location for the triathlon was New Orleans, and the location was moved last fall for various reasons.)
