  Dry suit for me
  Posted by: rosborn45 on Oct-24-13 8:09 PM (EST)

I'm a racer in Atlanta and train in a dry suit during the winter to avoid hypothermia. It's a pain because I can't go as long or get my heart rate up as high, my guess is because I overheat. But when racing season gets here in the spring I feel like I can fly without the drysuit. I figure if I capsize during a race there are usually safety boats around to keep me out of trouble. It's kind of like struggling through the heat all summer, then when the temps drop 20 degrees in the fall I feel like I can fly. I like the dry suit, I really think it makes me a better racer. Good luck!
