My First Triathlon is This Sunday!
Thanks for all your awesome and encouraging comments on yesterday’s post! It sure makes this crazy goal of mine seem a little less crazy.
And I know I’m getting ahead of myself. I mean, my first real triathlon is this weekend! What can I say, we go big in this house.
I’m doing the Munroe Falls triathlon this Sunday (which is SOLD OUT!!).
400 yard swim
12 mile ride
Sounds simple enough when you think about each piece separately, but when you put them all together I’m not so sure. I’m guessing my transitions will be quite comical – I’ll be rushing to get going and end up forgetting something (wouldn’t surprise if I forget my shoes!).
I just don’t want to freak out on the swim. I don’t think that I will, but this will be my first open water swim so who knows! But my biggest worry is the ride. I’m always terrified I’ll get a flat, not be able to change it, and end up stranded out in the country (Akron is considered the country, right? ). Other than that I just plan on going with the flow. We all have to start somewhere so I’ll be happy with whatever happens.
Unfortunately my favorite spectator/cheerleader can’t make it on Sunday.
But I’ll have the support of some new friends from the Cleveland Triathlon Club, so I’m sure I’ll be in good hands!
Now, the biggest question of all: WHAT DO I WEAR?? Hehe.
Seriously, I still have to get something! Anyone have a favorite pair of tri shorts or shirt they’d recommend? I already checked and Lulu doesn’t have tri apparel yet, but they did just come out with cycling jerseys and shorts (I’m sure J is cringing as he reads this)!!!
Anyone else racing/training/just plan on being outdoors this weekend?
