  It seemed logical to buy a wetsuit after competing in 60 degree water without one. I keep going back to that day in San Diego when I struggled through the swimming because I was without a wetsuit. I probably was the only woman without one, simply because I was naive about how cold the water really was and the fact that it was my second triathlon overall. Swimming is the weakest part of my race as is and I added in the struggle of being in shock from the water temperature. I can only imagine how much easier it would have been with a wetsuit and the fact that it insolates and they are buoyant! I ordered my wetsuit throught the xterra website and got a discount through Penn State Triathlon Club! I look forward to receiving my wetsuit and trying on my new gear. Each new piece of gear that I obtain makes me more passionate and knowledgeable about the sport. I need to educated myself more and more on the factors that contribute to racing faster, aka a wetsuit! So this is my first step in racing faster and taking the sport seriously. Without gear in any sport you cannot become better and/or faster. Next step, buying a new racing bike! Thats all for now.
