i hope you right. That indoor tri i talked about a year or two ago and never did. They have another one in November i'm very tenatively hoping i can do that one. But 1. i need to have lose 50 pounds by then. 2. my swimming form has to improve. See what happens!

I panic when the water and splashing, thrashing, arms and legs hitting me from other athletes hits me - afraid I can't breath. At least in a pool it is a more controlled environment, we have a lanes to swim in, and I can see and touch bottom if I need to.
Basically I'm just a wimp.
i see your point! i wouldn't like that either. I still want to do it someday though. Would you ever try aero bars? I think i would be afraid of that too!
