I’m currently at my in-laws relaxing because they live closer to the race site than I do and I had packet pick-up today and an early start tomorrow.
Last night my friend Jen came up here with me and my mother-in-law, Jen and I got some Mexican food/daquiris and then enjoyed wine on the screen porch. Perfect relaxing evening.
Then today I started my day with this:
*breakfast of champions*
Today, my mother-in-law and I went shopping and headed down to packet pick up.
*The swim start*
I won’t lie — I got really, really nervous being at packet pick up today and seeing just how many more elements there will be to deal with tomorrow than are necessary at non-triathlon races.
So naturally when we got home I started frantically Googling every question that was in my head. I realized I’m severely underprepared for this thing and that I hope no one ever looks at my Google search history.
I just started laying out my stuff and I’ve practiced my transitions a couple of times.
My amazing mother-in-law also just started making her world famous mushroom stroganoff for dinner tonight, so I’m a pretty happy camper 🙂
I think I’m less nervous now. I’m excited to be able to call myself a triathlete tomorrow. I’m excited that my family and friends are coming to cheer me on. I’m excited to see some awesome people race tomorrow including Erin, Alyssa, Marie and Nick. Most of all, I’m excited for it to be over with so I can just focus on this gosh darn marathon.
