Three Things Thursday: Tri-ing not to freak

Just a quickie so I get these anxieties off my chest. These are my top 3 worries about Saturday's triathlon:
1. People kicking or hitting me during the swim, causing me to panic. I know it's inevitable & it isn't personal, but it's going to be hard not to flip out and even harder not to hit or kick back.
2. Wiping out on the bike. I've become a much more comfortable rider but I still struggle with turns, especially tight ones. I've also done nearly all my rides solo & having other bikes around me scares me.
3. The weather. It's going to be cooler than it has been, which is great for the run but means I'm gonna be cold on the bike. It's not going to be cold enough to warrant a long sleeve shirt or arm sleeves though (plus I can't get those on when I'm wet anyways).

Have you done a tri? Any advice to get me through this?
