Well, folks, it's finally here and I can't believe it came so fast!! Tomorrow is the day I "compete" in my mock sprint triathlon!!! I'm so excited to say the least. A little nervous about the unknown and scheduling of it all, a little curious about my ability to do this in a reputable time, and mostly just excited that I actually made it this far. This week has been a learning week for me as I've gotten most of my triathlon gear to make me more official. I got a road bike (borrowed), a helmet, a swim cap, a Speedo (by the way, if you ever want to feel really fat...go Speedo shopping...they run really small...yikes!!), tried on bike shorts (they feel so weird) and planned how it will all work. I definitely realize how new, novice, and green I am to all the triathlon lingo and equipment, but excited to get all the kinks out of the way before it's "real." So anyway, if it's Friday night and you're reading this, or Saturday before 7am, say a little prayer for me. I'll post pics tomorrow and give the report on how it all went!!!
