The 4th discipline...

Here are some tips to make race day a little bit smoother.

1) Layout your kit in the order you need it. (Always put helmet on first!)

2) What row are you in?

3) Make a note of how far you are from "swim in", walk the route and count the steps, it will help you remember your racking slot when you come out of the water. 

4) Look for landmarks (Flags, kiosks, trees) level with your space to give a visual reference to where your spot is. (once you get near you should see the bike and your towel.

5) Don't panic, slow is smooth, smooth is fast!

By doing the above you can save minutes off your time, practice putting your kit on and off, it will make you efficient come race day!
