That's how I feel about my race this weekend.
This will be my first triathlon post-baby #2, and I really don't know what to expect. I originally signed up for the olympic distance, and was supposed to do the sprint at Huntington with my girls 2 weeks ago. However, my shin decided to be a party pooper. It's feeling much better now, but I'm still thinking I'd better downgrade to the sprint. Better to be safe than sorry...the big race is a few weeks away and I don't want to screw that up. But I do need to practice just being out there, too. Nothing substitutes getting ready better than doing a trial race.
Really not sure how I'm going to do in this race. First of all, it's a sprint, and I hate sprints. I always feel like the swim isn't long enough to give me much of an advantage, and you have to run really really fast. But, I'm going to suck it up and go for it anyway...even if I'm not that fast, it will still be fun! I'm more excited just to see all my tri friends that I haven't seen for, oh, say about a year and two months and about 50 pounds or so. :)
I've been feeling really strong in the pool lately, so I'd be happy to have a strong swim. Cycling has been okay, and who knows what I'll be able to pull on the run. But I surprised myself before in the 5K, so maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised this Sunday!
This weekend is also going to be fun because we get to celebrate six years of super awesomeness...
Thanks to the best husband in the universe...without him, I never would have made it to the starting line (let alone the finish line) of Ironman. Without him, I'd never be able to make it to any starting line, for that matter. Here's to a million more years of happiness. :)
