1. I am super, super, super nervous for this weekend! The swim is scaring me so much!!! I had a nightmare last night that I got to the race early and decided to go to an open house to kill time before my wave started (I love real estate and houses, but still not sure how this made it into my dream?) Well needless to say I got back to the race late and missed my wave and there was only two waves left which they let me go in the last one. But, I didn't have my transition area set up so I was screwed there and I started crying. And once I finally got in the water my right arm wasn't working so I couldn't really swim. At this point I woke up and was like thank god this was not real life! I now know that I'm not going to get any sleep on Sat night because I am so nervous for this. I'm not worried that I can't finish the bike and the run because to be honest 12.5 mile bike and a 4.2 mile run is super short and will be over in a blink of an eye. But, umm, the swim, have I mentioned that I almost died last weekend in the bay?!?! Please Potomac be nicer to me than the bay so I don't die!
2. Since I have started training for my first triathlon I can't seem to talk about anything else. I may now be the most boring person to people who don't like to swim, bike, or run. But it's really hard to talk about other stuff sometimes because the training has become such a big aspect of my life, that when I do talk about it, I am sharing my life with others. I can only image how much crazier it gets if you are training for a full IM. Speaking of an IM, I want to sign up for a 70.3.
3. Did I already mention that I'm really nervous for this weekend? Oh yeah I did! I will be going to get my packet pick - up tomorrow around 4:30ish. I love expos and can't wait to see what cool gear / sales they have. I guess I'm pretty excited for the tri as well!!!! Not only will the race be fun, but I love how friendly all the other athletes are at races! I love chit chatting and meeting new people while I am there.
Has anyone else had some crazy dreams before a race? Happy Thurs All :)
