After the fiasco that was my Ironman 70.3, I realize I need some experience actually doing a triathlon. There are several over the next couple months near to home, but the swims are all in a pool and I need open-water experience.
I found the Dallas TX Triathlon on September 29. They have Super-Sprint, Sprint, and Olympic distances. I have signed up for the Sprint distance. Ideally, I should be doing the longer Olympic distance, but I figured I would start with the Sprint just to ensure I finish and get through both transitions.
