1. Okay, I am getting nervous.
I know NOTHING about doing a duathlon. I don't know how to attach the number to the bike. I do know you need to dismount and walk in but I am afraid I will forget. I am afraid I will break some rule I don't even know exists. I am afraid I will be so far behind I won't even see other bikers. I am afraid some people will finish their run while I am still biking. I am afraid I will feel like a fish out of water. I don't know anyone going at this point and I am not good at small talk.
2. But.......having said all that I am also very excited. This was a goal I thought of last fall when I started biking due to my injury and I am pleased that I have followed through. Or I will have mid day on Sunday. I am excited to be doing something outside of my comfort zone that may open other opportunities for me. I am thrilled at how much I love biking and can't wait to do LOTS of biking this summer although very little of it will involve racing. I really have paid no attention to the running part of this race and perhaps I should be more nervous about it particularly that first uphill mile. I think I will be so glad to be running and doing something totally in my comfort zone that I won't care.
3. Here are my goals.
I want to have fun.
I want to finish.
I want to finish with the feeling that I want to do it again.
