I'm doing my first mini triathlon tomorrow!!!
I’m doing my first mini triathlon tomorrow!!! Its a 70 m swim, 9.5 mile bike, and 2 mile run. I’m super nervous and was wondering if you had any last minute tips. This site has been very helpful in my preparation for the race and I would love to hear what you have to say! Thank you!

Quick funny story:
On my first triathlon, I had no advice and went in as green as green can be. I ended up doing about 25 yards of the run before someone told me I still had my helmet on. I laughed my butt off later on.
