It's like studying for a test. You think you know all the material but when you start talking with a group, you begin to 2nd guess yourself and psyche yourself out for the actual test. This is how I feel with the race. I just entered to push myself to workout, have fun, and accomplish something I never thought possible. Now I am a little concerned, the more I talk to friends and others in passing, maybe I go it in over my head? (sigh)
So then I try to calm myself down. Remind myself that if I can't complete the run then I can walk....no big deal. If I am getting tired during the biking portion, I can slow my speed down. And the swimming....well I like to swim, it's the 1st part & the lake will probably be cold enough so that I swim faster!
Well...I hope to get some pictures and post next week, but in the meantime, say a prayer for me and feel free to leave a comment with any last minute advice.
