is there  a preferred  bike style, as mine is a little heavy with big tires.

@ Randy: Yes I watched the games live in July and re-watched some of it on ESPN. It was so much better this year. Never thought watching people exercising could be so exciting.

And that RuggedManiac looks cool. They're running it in the same location (Raceway Park) as my upcoming ToughMudder.

@ Keith: If price weren't an object a time-trial bike, but really any bike you can ride will do. The lighter the better, but in the 2 races I've done there were probably just as many mountain bikes as road bikes. One of the things you can do is run slick tires as opposed to the standard knobby mountain tire. You'll get less rolling resistance with a slick and won't have to work as hard.

One of the misconceptions I had was everyone was going to an ├╝ber-athlete and have cutting edge gear. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Equipment wise, the only things you need are: running shoes, bike, helmet and swimming goggles. Anything else is just gravy.

It's not absolutely necessary. There were a lot of people that didn't.

For the races I did the policy was: anyone can wear one however the water temperature has to be below a certain threshold if you want your results to be officially recorded.

When I did NJ State it was a 90deg June day and the water temp was close to 80 and they allowed them. The other was in October and it was OK then too.

I wore one in both races and it definitely helped. Not that it helped me swim any better it just kept me from drowning. :sigh:
