There should be a rule for all triathlons that states if it’s so cold out that you have to chop ice off the surface of the transition area, the race should be called off.
I’m sure that rule wouldn’t apply to winter triathlons, but this season opener was no winter triathlon.
At 7am, it was cold. It was so cold the penguins were wearing parkas. Maybe they weren’t penguins. They could have been very cold athletes setting up their transition areas. I couldn’t see very well, because the fog on my glasses was frozen. By mid morning, however, it started to warm up nicely. Regardless of the weather, the Azalea Triathlon was the place to be on Saturday morning.
Stay to the right, pass on the left and keep on smilingLG
