Run, bike, swim. Or is it swim, bike, run? Either way, it's a lot to do, and starting early is usually the way to do it. Last weekend, I woke up at 4:30 am to accompany my brother-in-law to Asbury Park, NJ. We headed to this revitalizing New Jersey beach town, made famous by "The Boss." This was my BIL's second sprint triathalon in the last two years. For me, the question "run or shoot" always plays in my mind. This time, I sat out. I'm pretty happy I did. Conditions: 6 am air temp: 75 degrees, water temp: hovering around 70. Perfect.
Next year, maybe "run" wins over "shoot." Just hope the photo conditions aren't as perfect!
