Yesterday Tyler and I went to Indianapolis to volunteer at the Eagle Creek Sprint Triathlon. This was the first race of a summer sprint tri series and was at the same place I'll be doing my tri in August so I thought this was a great opportunity to check things out. We were working in the transition area and I was really excited about that because it's an important part of the race and the part I wanted to get some pointers on. It was so much fun! The only other tri I've been to is the Ironman Louisville where I was a production assistant for Ironman Live. Incredible, yes. But a totally different league so I was definitely excited to see how "real" people transitioned. Surprisingly, they transition an awful lot like Ironmen. I'm definitely nervous about the open water swimming but I think I can survive...hopefully. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment...
