Tri to be different
I am signed up for the classic, will be my second ocean tri.
This will be my 2nd tri, 1st ocean. I did the OC Triathlon at Mission Viejo Lake in 2010. Am terrified of the ocean and hoping that with it being in the channel, it'll be calmer. Are you doing the sprint or olympic? Are you staying at the hotel?
I am thinking I will just drive down in the morning... I usually get more sleep the night before if I stay home.
I agree with you, terrified of the Ocean swim. I am going for the Olympic Distance. My first ocean Tri will be this weekend, Camp Pendelton Sprint. We will see how it goes.
Good luck this weekend. Where have you been training? I do the cycling classes at Renaissance Sports Club in Aliso Viejo, and often swim laps there. The Mission Viejo Lake one I did was olympic distance. This time I didn't give myself enough time to train, so I'm not fully committed to the olympic for San Diego, but will at least do the sprint.
This will be my second San Diego Classic. Last year it was great. The swim is in the back bay area, so it is super calm. Does anyone have a discount code for it?
When you register, use code MOMENT2012 for $15 off the Olympic distance race or code MOMENTSPRINT for $5 off the Sprint distance.
