Tomorrow I leave for Seattle. The race is on Saturday. I’m hoping to have all these (pictured) items packed in my Orca triathlon bag to avoid any check-in baggage. Fortunately, I am not packing any extra pairs of shoes (other than the ones I will run in). This will make the space-requirements considerably more manageable!
I have decided to run this race with my iPhone in my hand so I can take Snapathon pictures as I run. It is a very different race strategy than the one I have ever done; of course it will be a slow race because I will stop for a few seconds every few miles to take a few snaps. We have submitted the new version of the Snapathon app to the Apple appstore but it is still waiting for approval.
The weather on raceday is expected to be perfect in Seattle. I look forward to running in 55 degree weather through an urban landscape.
