You'll be fine on a mountain bike! There will be lots of them. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
You need a pair of tri shorts. They are good for all three sports. You can run in them, they have a slight pad for biking, and will be good in the water.<br><br><a href="http://www.teamestrogen.com/search.asp" target="_blank">http://www.teamestrogen.com/search.asp</a><br>

You wear the tri shorts instead of a bathing suit bottom. You swim in them, too. That way when you jet into T2 after zooming on your bike, all you have to do is take off your shoes (& socks if you wear them), your shirt and run to the pool. Don't forget to grab your goggles and swim cap. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
You can wear whatever you want over your bra for the bike & run, I'd just make sure it's wicking. Wear a running or biking shirt if you have them. I'm not sure what the surfing rash guard thing is...<br><br>
Your local running or biking story may have tri shorts, I'd definitely call or stop by asap. You could probably order them now and get them by the weekend if you had to, but I'd rather pick them up in person.

I'd love to do a backwards tri! If I had to pick an order to do them in, that would be it. We have one here called Do it My Way tri, or something like that. You totally get to pick.

Well I freaked out in my first OW swim, so I always reccomend to people that they try it. But if it doesn't work out, you'll be fine. I had to do the backstroke thru most of my first one, but I finished it <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
YAY! I'm so glad you signed up. I can't wait to read <b>your</b> RR!
