My favorite thing about doing a new race in a different town is that I don’t have to worry about anybody recognizing me or thinking that I’m a dork for attempting to ‘compete’ at a sport that I’m not a natural at. As long as I keep that in mind this weekend, my first triathlon should go over pretty well. Heck, I’ve already paid for my race t-shirt, so I can’t have too much to say about it now.
It’s kinda fun, though, to have race nerves again. It’s been a while since the last time I had to deal with that. I’m actually pretty happy to be dealing with that so early in the season. With any luck, it’ll get me into the right state of mind to enjoy the rest of the summer races, which is the whole idea behind this triathlon thing.
I’ll let you guys know how it goes.
