Thursday Thirteen #22

As you can see, time is ticking away until the triathlon. Since it is on my mind a lot lately, I decided to list thirteen of the things I will need to bring with me on race day. Of course, this list is not all inclusive. I have a much longer list sitting with the rest of my race stuff. This could be a continuing TT topic! ;)

Thirteen Things Things I Need to Bring on Triathlon Day!

1. Timing chip and strap

2. Swim cap and race numbers given with race materials during pick up

3. Goggles

4. Towel

5. Bike helmet with race number affixed to front

6. Fix-a-flat kit & bike pump

7. Running shoes/socks

8. Shirt I plan to wear during the run with race numbers pinned to it.

9. Sunglasses

10. Food/snacks to eat during and/or after race.

11. Bottled water/fluid replacement drink on full bottle in cage on bike to drink during the bike leg. Additional fluids to enjoy after the race.

12. Sunscreen

13. Cell phone

I didn't mention bike because it will already be there. We pick up race materials and lock our bikes in the staging area the day before the race.

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Chapstick! I so hope you have a nice day. What kind of weather would you want? Hot, cool, sunny or cloudy. I can see that different weather would be good for the different events.
When is it exactly?

I think I want a warm, partly cloudy day. I know I don't want rain during the swim or the bike, but it might be nice to end with a rainy run...LOL!!

The tri is July 8!

Oh, Chapstick & Bodyglide are on my list here! I'll probably get the sun formula to lighten the load of things I will need to bring with me.

Kim said...

Oh wow a triathalon. Good luck and great list!

amy said...

Wow, there is a lot more to it than most people realize I think. I guess I just think, run, bike, swim, but never think of the particulars! I am proud of you for doing it, way to go!

Oh, boy, I think if I was running a triathalon I would have to add Motrin to this list!!!

Best of luck to you!!!!
