Yep...only one month to go until the big race begins. We are excited but all still very nervous to even be doing this. Are we crazy?? Probably, but I hope to continue this style of staying in shape. I always need goals and I think this is how I can keep them going. I think it is interesting that with all the exercise that I have been doing, I thought the weight would just fall right off..but it hasn't. But I haven't felt this good in a long time. I can run father than I ever thought. Swim fast and longer, and ride a bike with out stopping to take brakes...So I think I'm doing alright.
Yesterday McKenzie and I went swimming for yet another one of our workouts at the YMCA. And in her lane (she swims in the fast lane) was this woman who taught one of our spinning classes. We soon found out that she is a nationally ranked Tri Athlete. And here I am in the lane next to her and I am just paddling away hoping to make it to the other side before dying. Can we say intimidating? She just did a triathlon in Galveston last weekend and came in first for the ladies and overall 6th...That means only 5 men beat her in the whole entire race. It is times like these when I am asking myself, "Why the heck am I doing this??"
So now it is down to the wire and all I can do is train my best and hope not to die in the end.
