It was my club's annual transition clinic. I missed last year's so I was really looking forward to it even though I'm already pretty good at transitions. The video from last year looked like fun and I thought it would be a good idea to brush up on this stuff before my first race.
So I arrived early, set up my transition area and settled in. The coaches went through how they set up their transitions and two of them have seats! I have to say that this does not sit well with me. I have always gone by the adage "never sit in transition." I think this is the difference between being a young pro and an older coach. I suspect at some point I'll have to have a bucket or stool too as I won't be able to bend over without falling down. But until that point comes... never sit in transition!
