Triathlon Checklist (As I See It)

As I see it, you need lots of stuff on race day. I'm a beginner, my first foray into triathlon was last summer (2009) when I did three sprints. This year I'm doing three sprints and one olympic distance. I have added a wetsuit to my repertoire. I am still a beginner in that I haven't yet gone through too many trials and tribulations (jinxing self here) i.e. flat tires, stung by jellyfish, etc etc. But I am sure my day is near.
