I am seriously considering bagging the tri on 9/23.

I have compelling reasons. I do!

Reason #1: It's freaking cold. Yesterday it was 40-something degrees at 7:30am. It's an open water swim and I don't have a wet suit and I don't want a wet suit.

Reason #2: Night before the race conditions are not ideal. Sharing a room with my 3 kids and Rob... not so restful.

Reason #3: The start of school threw a wrench into my training. Riding my bike and running once or 1 and a half times a week does not a triathlete make.

What to do, what to do?

Come on, Meg! Suck it up! LOL. What's a little frigid temperatures, LOL. I'll never forget going from my drowning training in the army when I was in Germany. The temperature was about 60 degrees and the water was freezing! Not to worry though. That's the nice thing about races. There is always another one down the line.

Freezing water? I don't think so. I'm with Wes and Mia - there is always another event.
