Right now*, at 7:06am, I am entering the water for a 1.2 mile swim.
I'm going to then ride my bike for over 57** miles,
and follow that with a 13.1 mile run.
WHAT AM I THINKING???
But this is just for fun. I can't take the tri stuff too seriously -- I won't. I'm not strong enough to place, and this is a new distance for me -- so I can't be nervous. Nerves not allowed. I'm ready. I can do this. I can finish, and I will. My goal is to do just that with a smile on my face. Dive in.
* I scheduled this post to go online just at the time my wave was set to start...
**Because of the hurricane damage to two bridges on the original course, the bike route was changed to a 2 loop course, which ends up being just over 57 miles. No 70.3 for me -- more like ~72mi.
