Are you scared to death about the race???
Scared to death? I can't say I am scared at all. I have concerns about the race, but I am really not scared. But if I am honest, there is one thing that I fear doing, and it is having to make that phone call about being a DNF.
It has happened before in Branson. My first ever attempt at a 70.3. 5 flats took me out. Stupid rim tape. I am the only one to blame since I was the one that change the rubber on my tires. This year I am having a bike shop change my tires! LOL I know, it's weak, but it will be one less thing to worry about.
I also hate reading about other people nutrition plan. Some of these people are so detailed that it makes me second guess my own plan! Bradleyd3 from Brad's Ironman Journey has already told me to get off the internet and train! Which I am starting to think might be a good idea. Some of these people have their nutrition down to 3 spoonfuls of peanut butter and a cup of applesauce in the morning... Crazy!!!
My plan is so simple compared to that, and that freaks me out a little. I am looking forward to the swim and the bike somewhat (although I hear the road conditions might be a little rougher than desired) but I am dreading the run.
4 loop course. A little more than 8 5K's. It is going to be mentally challenging. I plan on some walking.
They also just announced bib numbers! I am number 65 in the full distance triathlon!!
I am also just ready for it to get here and let me do this. It has been a long time in training. A long time thinking about it and I really want to just get it going! That's normal right? So I am gonna go old school on you...
LET"S GET IT STARTED!!!!
