So tomorrow I will participate in my second triathlon.
The first one went relatively well, except for that whole flat tire thing.
I didnâ€™t train for this as well as I would have liked to, but Iâ€™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.
Iâ€™m a little nervous about being kicked in the face or getting a little claustrophobic in the crowd, but Iâ€™m most nervous about being able to have an idea of where I am. Iâ€™ve heard that looking up and attempting to sight the buoys helps. Or X-ray goggles.
Itâ€™s in my parentsâ€™ hometown, so I came home tonight and brought my cheering squad: Ashley and Shannon. Ashleyâ€™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.
Letâ€™s hope I donâ€™t drown or swim rogue and end up back in NYC.
