So, like I said, at 8:26 am I will start my first actual Olympic triathlon. If you're interested you can check up on me here. Just type in Neiers in the last name box. It's an early wake up call at 4 am so the bikes and gear can be locked away in the transition area by 5:45 am. Hopefully between then and about 8 am, we will be sneaking off to grab some coffee and a bit of breakfast. And, who knows, maybe a nap. Although a nap before 8 am just doesn't really make sense.
My goal is to beat the average finishing time for last year of 3 hours 17 minutes. It would be super, duper, fantastic if I could finish in less than 3 hours. But I'm not getting my hopes up. I'm nervous, but it's a good nervous. I hope my new bike holds up for the race. It's supposed to be all fixed up after it's little accident, but on my short ride on Saturday I noticed that the front derailleur wasn't shifting right. I'll just cross my fingers and say a little prayer.
I'll be back with my race recap soon!
