Three more days!

3 more days!

It’s almost that time again. I’ve been getting quite a few “Are you ready?” questions this week. My answer is I am as ready now as I’m going to be Sunday.

If I were to take a ballpark guess at how long it’ll take me to swim 1/2 mile, bike 18 miles, and then run 4 miles– 22.5 miles total, I’d say 30 minutes for the swim and t1, 1 hour 8 minutes for the bike and t2, and 37 minutes for the run: 2 hours and 15 minutes.

I am not nervous (yet). I haven’t felt any certain way about this weekend aside from excitement. I’ve found it tough to envision past Wednesday of this week. Now it’s Friday and here I am with registration packet in hand and I’m expecting a familiar bought of race-induced insomnia over the next two nights. I have absolutely no plans on Sunday from 1:30PM-6:30 AM on Monday except to recover from the long, sleep-deprived drive back home. None of my non-tri team friends nor my family will be attending this time due to logistical difficulty, but I know they’re supportive of my efforts, no matter what and so I’ll just do my best and have fun with no extra pressure.
