Well, this race totally snuck up on me. I registered for it many moons ago and now it is this Saturday! This is not an A race- just a training session with a timing chip and a bib number. Don't let the lax 'tude fool ya- I still set some goals for myself for this race. Just nothin' crazy.
This will be the first race I have done where there are some more technical aspects to the race: a million turns on the swim, hills and sharp turns on the bike, and a gravel path for the run. While I know this most likely means I won't be able to set a PR, I am pretty excited for the new challenges. Especially the hills on the bike because my last two long rides have been pretty hilly and I have done quite well climbing! I am leaving Pink Lady (the tri bike)at home and taking my road bike for this race.

So without further ado, my goals...

4. Continue to take awesome race photos. I can't help but smile and wave when I see the race photographer. This weekend I think it may be time to give up the old "wave and smile" routine and change it up by sticking my tounge out or making some other goofy face.
5. Have a ton of fun. A TON!
I think that about covers it. What are you up to this weekend?
