I really had no idea how much time to put down for my swim time. I've one swam once since last July. I put down 4:00 and I hope I'm not getting passed over by a billion people. The swim is pretty complicated. Here's the map.
I think I can handle it. What I couldn't handle was packet pick-up today. Oy vey! There were two guys running the whole thing (along with a 4 year old) and none of them knew what they were doing. I tend to not have patience for this type of thing. In the grand scheme of things I realize it is no big deal, but seriously this isn't rocket science.
Surprisingly this is a USAT sanctioned event so we had to have our membership cards ready. Kelley, she's always ready!
Even with the confusion and over complication of the process we were able to get our bibs and I'm happy with my EVEN bib number (I have superstitions about bib numbers). I'll be racing as #1432.
