So, follow up on the potential last minute tri this weekend:
1. Yes, I can still sign up, all I have to do is show up the morning of with $5 in my hot little hand.
2. The race director answered all the questions I asked him, except the most crucial: is the 18 mile bike course hilly? I’m taking that as a bad sign. 18 miles of flat biking I can do, 18 miles of hills=vomit.
3. The race is small: under 40 participants and like 34 of them are high school wrestlers (the coach is the race director and makes them do it to start wrestling season). On one hand, it be fun to beat high school boys at swimming and I might win my age group (might be the only one in the age group). On the other, I’m not sure I want to race high school boys.
I’m sitting in a hotel tonight, miles from home, sweaty from a ride on the exercise bike in the fitness center and I have no idea if I am going to do it or not.
