Your early-season race provides an opportunity to refresh your memory on what gear to pack, how to transition smoothly and how to nail your nutrition plan—all while allowing you to make a few mistakes. It also gives you the chance to make sure your gear is still in working order, considering you haven’t used some of it in the last few months. Be sure you inspect your wetsuit, find your aero helmet, stock up on tubes, etc. before the night of the race!

Patrick McCrann offers a detailed half Ironman seminar at Endurance Nation.
