Sometimes at the start of Ironman, a little divine help can come in handy. It certainly doesn’t do any harm to send a request upstairs.

Thanks to the time change, at Lucky’s Lake Swim, we usually get at least one full crossing (across the lake and back) in the AM darkness. Definitely plays with your mind

Well I made it to my first Tri, this is the swim start.  Due to injury I could only do the swim, bike and then a 20 min run but will be back next year as I have unfinished business.  Great event.

Canadian Tri Training:  Open water swims start with wetsuit, booties, peguins gloves and two (not just one) neoprene hats.  When you first enter the water the “wtf my face is burning…” is normal and will go away once your face become numb from the cold.
