So tomorrow I will participate in my second triathlon.
The first one went relatively well, except for that whole flat tire thing.
I didn’t train for this as well as I would have liked to, but I’m fairly confident in finishing the distance.
What I am nervous about: the open water swim. I have never swam in open water in a race-type situation before.
I’m a little nervous about being kicked in the face or getting a little claustrophobic in the crowd, but I’m most nervous about being able to have an idea of where I am. I’ve heard that looking up and attempting to sight the buoys helps. Or X-ray goggles.
It’s in my parents’ hometown, so I came home tonight and brought my cheering squad: Ashley and Shannon. Ashley’s husband, Bo, is also doing the tri, and Shannon is just a fixture on my cheering squad.
Apparently, four extra people constitutes an army to my parents and we had three different kind of pastas: whole-wheat, regular and gluten-free.
Carbed-up, ready to sleep.
Let’s hope I don’t drown or swim rogue and end up back in NYC.
