My wife and are are just getting into tri's, we did our first sprint back in May and loved it. Great people, atmosphere, etc and the race was a blast! Our next sprints are Aug.2 and 30.
My question is: is it worth it to have a wetsuit and cycling shoes and pedals for a Sprint Tri? I don't see the wetsuit giving that much of an advantage over 750m and it will just take me extra time to get it off. Same idea with the pedals and shoes. I'm thinking of going with old-school clips and wearing my running shoes for the bike ride and saving the time to change shoes.
We are planning on moving up to the Olympic distance next summer and suits and shoes probably make alot more sense at that distance.
