Triathlon Season Opener

I've not been swimming or biking much, but I decided to go ahead and do a small sprint triathlon on Saturday, the Mattoon Beach Multisport Mayhem. It's short at 0.25 mile swim, 14.75 mile bike, and 3 mile run, so it's a good place to start. The race is put on by the same people who host the half-iron distance triathlon that I'm planning to do in September, so this will give me an opportunity to see how they run things. I'm going to the race with one or two other guys from the Fighting Illini Triathlon Club, so it should be a good time and a less than subtle reminder that I need to start spending some serious time in my bike saddle.
