With the Bigfoot Triathlon coming up in a few weeks, I started thinking more about race strategy. No, I'm not expecting to compete seriously or place, but I do want it to be as pleasant an experience as possible.
Since I weighed 208 pounds 2 weeks ago, I can still probably qualify as a Clydesdale, should I want to change my registration. Since I'm not racing to win, it doesn't really matter the division I'm in, or does it?
My thought is that the Clydesdale division, which starts separately from the age-groupers, might be less crowded and therefore, more mellow, especially during the swim. Since I haven't really done any swim training, I know that I will struggle on the first leg and it might be easier if there are less people around.
What are your thoughts? To Clydesdale or not...
