As one of my friends said:
"Most people I know start with the Try-a-Tri. But no, you go balls out, of course."This sounds just like me, taking the bull by the horns. With all the running I've been doing in the last 2 years for the marathons and the cross training on the bike, a Sprint or a Try-a-Tri just don't seem scary enough to me. What is more scary is the cut-off time of 30 min on a 750m swim. For some reason, those 10 extra minutes on the Olympic distance feel more comforting. Since I am able to do a km in about 33 min in the pool, I think I can make it in time, if only I don't freak out and drown.
Now I need to find myself a wetsuit since they are mandatory for that time of the year and, ideally, a better bike, because I don't know if I want to risk taking my 21yr old hybrid on this ride.
But boy, I am excited!!
