What's the water temp? Is this a wetsuit swim?

I have done this race the past 2 years and haven't worn a wetsuit.  Water temp is currently around 74 according to this site: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?site_no=01570500

The susquehanna is running high and muddy right now. Just under 7' when normal height is 3.5 to 4' during the summer. The water temp almost hit 80 a week ago before the rainstorms.

This will be my first time doing this race. Very much looking forward to it. I hope the water temps stay cool and its wetsuit legal.

The river was a delightful shade of brown today.

Chocolate milk!  And it sure was up there, too.

78 as of this morning. Leaving my wetsuit at home. Although it was good to get it out of the closet and wash the dust off it.

Anybody hear any reports from the race?  It seems there may have been a swimmer in trouble (or worse).  Wondering if anyone heard anything.  Really hoping for the best, has me shaken up a bit right now.

I didn't hear any reports from the race, but I did find this on abc 27's website--> http://www.abc27.com/story/22836518/man-dies-during-triathlon-near-...

Thoughts and prayers for his family.

Unfortunately it was in the "or worse" category. He was brought in by some kayakers and some swimmers.

Dang.  Although all indications (of my husband and my patched together experiences and sightings of the day, his as a spectator and mine as a racer) pointed toward 'or worse' I was really hoping for the best.  Prayers for his family, how very, very sad.

At mile ten I heard a noise like I had gotten paper in my spokes or something. I looked but saw nothing but a few seconds later my rear tire blows out.

Are these races too close together to give me any sort of recovery? Will I be spent and unhappy racing back to back weekends and then again two weeks after that?

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

The challenge? The accomplishment? I want to do this because it is an opportunity to live life. The event is an indoor sprint triathlon. I get to experience the challenge on a safer scale.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

Since your “A” race is your marathon, which you stated in your question, this should be your main focus. I encourage you to taper a bit for the sprint distance triathlon.

I was not an official; I simply observed the race and the officials doing their thing. Here is what I saw:
