Becca - I am amazed at your resolve. I am really happy to see that you posted, otherwise I would have feared that you were dead and I would have felt guilty. And to still post good times is that heat is just insane.
That locked-wheel bike move sounds crazy. I think I am going to take out a life insurance policy on your hubby and you.
Interesting that you went sockless, as Runners World had a big section on tri's this month and a lot of the elite go sockless. So, you are fitting in well with the elite.
Now that you have competed iin 100 degree weather, I think the only thing left is for you to compete in subzero weather, e.g. the Minnesota Frozen 1/2 marathon. Remember, if you can find a cheap flight here, room and board are on TG and I and nipple shots are on PG.
Excellent work Princess (Leah)!
