Transition prior to the half iron race
The only thing of mine NOT in this picture is my wetsuit and swim goggles.
As awalys, USAT continues to do nothing about the clutter and excess stuff people bring into transition. It really shouldn't be allowed to bring a bowl full of water to your transition space... let alone any solid boxes bigger than 12x12. There just no need to lay a fullsize towel out and then set out enough stuff for a family picknick, get with it people, make a race plan and stick to it!
I also find it kind stupid that they allow helium balloons to be tied to transition to mark peoples space. Yesterday a number of people had also stuck tape to the ground, or chalked a large arrow saying their name or me and point to their space.
It's all so pointless, if everyone did this transition itself would be a mess, they'd be lose balloons everywhere and you couldn't see the chalk marks becuase there would be too many...
