Last tri of the season is here...
Tomorrow is The Mainiac Sprint Triathlon!!
I had a set of lofty goals for this race but I gotta be realistic. I am 4 weeks out from Timberman 70.3 and did not spend the last 4 weeks training for speed. AND the last couple of days I have been feeling under the weather-spending yesterday afternoon and in bed with nausea and feeling dizzy.
I am feeling better today but my gut is not 100%.
None the less, I am looking forward to tomorrow's race and will have a ton of fun regardless of my performance. I have decided to set aside any ambitious time goals and enjoy the day to it's fullest.
The Mainiac is put on by my tri club-Kennebunk Beach Triathlon Club-and the YMCA-where I work, so all the cool people will be there!
I have several silly pre-race traditions I usually complete-one being painting my toenails a color that has some sort of significance on race day. For example, I did purple for Timberman to match my Tough Chik tri top.
It'll also be a special day since it'll be a year that I met an amazing woman-Dawn! My best friend and training buddy. Dawn is such an amazing lady-smart, ambitious, loyal, honest and REAL! She is also so much fun to be around. It is amazing how many strange parallels there are in our lives and I cannot believe we have not crossed paths sooner. As she says, it was serendipitous!! (love that word)
I joke that I am going to propose to her at the finish line or greet her with gifts and a cake.
I suggested that we race together and cross the finish line hand-in-hand.
So call me sappy but I am really glad that I have such a wonderful gal that I am lucky enough to call my friend~
Here's to many more years tearing up the streets of Southern Maine. I look forward to the day we get to Kona, even if we are pushing 95 and using walkers.
I have some pretty exciting news to share next week so make sure you check it out!
Also, this is post #200--I am going to celebrate with some kind of giveaway!
Not sure what yet, probably a mish-mash of my favorite things.
