I Will TRI!

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Thanks for ALL of your comments on my "Decisions, Decisions" post. It's been an interesting couple of days!

I went to workout with my new personal trainer yesterday. By the way, she's great! I told her it felt like Boot Camp. Well, she is a Boot Camp instructor! I loved it. And, I'm SORE! (It doesn't help that I rode 7.5 miles this morning & swam 600 yards this evening.)

So, my PT and I have a lot in common... she is fairly new to running & is training for her 2nd half marathon just like I am! And, she's considering doing a triathlon! In fact, she's considering the same one I was considering. She has friends that have done it, so I'm hoping we can all get together - at least on race day so I'll have some 'experienced' people nearby.

Anyway, I came home & researched 'my' tri some more. I read on a board that it was CLOSED. NO!!! So, I went over to check it out. They were wrong. It was still open...so I signed up! I didn't want to lose my chance.

Now, I'm excited AND nervous!!! I have so many questions. I've been asking them, too. I have one IRL friend who has done quite a few tris and she's being a big help. I'm learning that I still have a lot to learn!

For now, I'm ready to head to bed. I've worked out more in the past 3 days then I usually do. And, I hope to run & do ST tomorrow as Friday will be a rest day. We'll see if I actually feel up to it, though. I'm tired & sore & ready for bed.

Good night! And, thanks again for all of your comments & support.

    That's awesome! I'm doing my first TRI in May. I've never done a race of any kind before, so I am very nervous. What are you doing for training?

    Congrats on making it official!

    I don't know if I mentioned this to you already, but in order to get as much info as possible, and since I won't be able to see a tri in person before mine, I went to YouTube to watch some videos. Turns out, there were videos of my actual event. It was so cool to see people getting ready and then the swim portion/finish line. So, you might have some luck doing that. And maybe checking for reviews of the event on Active.com or other similar sites.

    Yay, congrats on signing up for your tri!!! Sometimes it just takes that little scare of thinking something is no longer available for you to realize just how badly you want it!
