Babes and Bums and My Badunkadunk, Part 2

Tomorrow I face the Babes and Bums triathlon and I am unbelievably nervous as I have no idea what to expect.  Although I have trained hard for it, this is still my first triathlon. 

During my training, I have conquered each component of the triathlon and I feel confident about each individual sport but I have yet to tackle the entire race in one go.  For this race, time is not my focus.  I am simply driven to completing the race and going the distance.  For me, the experience is the challenge. 

At dinner tonight, I will eat wheat pasta, but I will refrain from consuming any alcohol beverages.  No margaritas for me, although wine does pair nicely with pasta.  ;-) Tonight will also bring an early bedtime for so I can try to get a good night’s sleep.  Usually I find it difficult to sleep the night before a race because my mind is filled with worry about the race the next day.  I hope I can sleep well tonight because I was wide wake at 3:00 a.m. this morning.

In this triathlon, swimming is the last leg.  Please pray that I do not drown from exhaustion in the pool.

    Good luck. Your dedicated and successful pursuit of physical fitness, when you previously had little interest in it, might qualify as a “life lesson” for others.

    What an interesting name for a triathalon. So, I can’t wait to hear how you did. A full triathalon, huh, …….

    (you can’t hear it, but my brain is churning this one over and over and over and over and….)
