So….this was my first long course triathlon. This was my first triathlon that was longer than a sprint. Just think, I only started doing this last year (2013)! I wanted to complete a Half-Ironman the year I turned 40….and I did. To say I was nervous is an understatement. I WAS TERRIFIED!!! Terrified of the swim, terrified of the bike, not so much the run…..just the swim and bike.
I watched the mass of people enter the water to warm up, so I made my way down to the waters edge to do the same. I needed to calm my nerves and my short warm up run didn’t help at all. For 70 degree water temp, that water was COOOOLD! After I swam for a bit, it felt better and less like I was going to freeze to death or drown.
I came out and slowly made my way to the person holding the placard for my wave….#14 at 7:50am. They were whipping through the waves like crazy. Everyones wave was going off on time. My wave was up. We swam quietly to the start buoys. Everyone wished each other good luck and said to have fun, with some light nervous giggling. WE WERE OFF!!
What a great response we have gotten to the indoor bike training sessions. Keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming sessions as we are constantly scheduling them. Stay tuned and see you out there!
