It kinda just dawned on me that my first race of the season happens to be a Half-Ironman...and it happens to be THIS WEEKEND! Suddenly, the pre-race jitters are here. The two main things I'm worried about are:
1.) Mechanical issues on the bike (i.e. flat tires on the race wheels)
2.) Legs cramping/pain on the run
I'm going into it well-rested and excited to go with over 40 of my teammates and my parents!
Yep--my parents are coming to Austin this weekend for a visit and we're dragging them to the hurricane-ravaged island of Galveston to sit around for 5+ hours while their daughter acts a fool.
