Don't be a FRED!

Totally unknown to me was this term "Fred". The name elites call us beginners when we do such things as leave our reflectors on, cover ourselves in chain grease, etc.

So my girlfriend and I headed out at 4am to volunteer and watch said pros at the Rage Triathlon at Lake Mead. Our goal: learn how to transition correctly (aka: not be a FRED)

Wow! It was amazing to watch what fast looks like! We were so busy body marking and running transition that I hardly got a chance to learn how to transition faster myself! I guess I will be a FRED for a while yet!
