One Week

My first event is one week from today. It's been one of those weekends too that I haven't done anything that I should be doing.
  • I haven't been on my bike in a week
  • I haven't been in the pool since Wednesday
  • I haven't run since Wednesday
  • I haven't done anything since Wednesday

Life kind of took a higher priority this week and I let training move to the backseat.

I don't regret my decision to spend time with family and put triathlons and athleticism on the backburner... and I can't say that the thought of not even competing in this event hasn't crossed my mind... and honestly, I can still back out, probably with no refund, but whatever.

But somewhere deep inside, I know I can do this. I can finish this. I can do this event, even if I haven't been as dedicated in the last week as I needed to be. Because I have been dedicated up until this point...

And the good thing about the whole deal is since it's my first event, I won't have any idea if my time is way off... because it will be my first time. My first finish.

Please, please, please don't let me DNF.

Julie, you are going to do a fabulous job! I know things have been difficult this week, but you're stronger than you realize.

I can't wait to read your race report! *hugs*

Hang in there chica. I know how you feel! 4 weeks from today I'll be in a coma from attempting a 10k I didn't train for.

HOWEVER... You are going to do just fine!!! If nothing else, the pure adrenaline of the day will get your through :)
