My wetsuit zipper broke 10 minutes before we had to lineup for the start. Couldn't get it fixed either. I was wearing a pair of spandex shorts under the wetsuit that did not have a drawstring. I ran up to the pool to try swimming without the wetsuit and my shorts kept coming off. Extreemly pissed at this point I decided to just leave right as the races were starting. Didn't realize till I got home that I still had the chip around my ankle.
Oh well. Reston will have to wait till next year.
Lesson learned: Have a plan B.
