First triathlon of the season in 48 hours! YIKES. Just like I wrote before the half marathon, I always get cold feet before my racing season begins. And COLD is the word for the weekend. I will be jumping into the Great South Bay in Islip and current water temperature is hovering just below 60 degrees. I had hoped to get an open water swim in to boost confidence but with the icky weather of the last few weeks and my dog's passing, it has not come to fruition. Oh well, so it goes. I have to assume most folks will be in the same boat. Anyway, I am using this weekend's race as a warmup, training race. The following weekend's race in NC will be bigger and harder, especially at higher elevations that I am not used to.
If you find yourself in the area of Islip, come on over to the marina and cheer me on. Watching a triathlon is always fun for all.
