As some kind of retail therapy, I ordered myself a Louis Garneau Tri-suit
and a new heart rate monitor. The latter I'll get to try out maybe once before the race, but my cautious side says don't try new apparel on race day; what if the tri-suit doesn't play nice with my wetsuit or something? Still, I was looking forward to a new outfit for race pictures.
At any rate: Wish me luck! Do you do as much pre-race analysis as this? More? What do you think of early, early start times?
