I want to race. I want to see where I am as I prep for Redman. This race will be a good gauge for my fitness levels. I am no stranger to the Memphis in May venue, as this is the 6th time I have done this race I think, and it will be the 3rd time it has been at this venue, so I know what to expect.
I know what to expect at the expo.
I know what to expect with the hotel room.
I know what to expect with the meal we will eat the night before.
I know what to expect for the line up to the swim.
I know where the majority of the contact will happen on the swim.
I know that I will most likely have a headwind for the first half of the bike and a tailwind coming back.
I know I will want to walk on part of the run at some point.
I know the run will have zero shade.
I know that coming around the hotel means the finish is right there.
I know it will be so great to take a shower after the race.
I know my family will love chilling at the pool while I race.
This is what I know. I know it is going to be fun.
