Leanne I've just done my 1st Tri, its not a scary as you think, for a start the swim is done in stages, so you'll not end up coming into the finish line on your own with everyone watching, there will be lots of compeptitors still out doing there race. And does it really matter, your out there doing a triathlon not sitting as home, and just think when you go for your next tri and you will, with more training your PB will get smashed. Don't sweat the small stuff Leanne, go and enjoy your 1st tri & good luck
FB I brought it to the attention of the referee and also sent an email to the club but got nothing back. What annoyed me was he was a member of the home club & his bike was still there when I got back from the run so I know he wasn't late in racking although that is no excuse.
I did my 1st sprint tri last weekend & not really bothered about times just to get round. Next time I hope will be different, lessons learned, its not a scary as you think & get out on the bike & do the hills & more brick sessions. I read the pirates guide for setting up & racking & also checked some of the rules, so was pretty miffed to find coming in to T2 that someone had moved my box & racked their bike in my place.
