Race fever

Saturday, July 14, 2012

I don't know why it is so hard for me to pick a tri and just do it. I'm so worried that I won't be ready or that something will happen. I've signed up for plenty of races in advance before and it hasn't phased me, but my indecisiveness on this one is driving me crazy. Technically my training is over on August 3rd. I am doing a mud obstacle race called Camp Titan on August 4th, so that weekend is out. The next weekend there are two options: one is a YWCA sprint triathlon that is just for women and is very close to my house. The other is nearly 2 hours away and when I mentioned it to my boyfriend he became annoyed that not only am I spending money on the race, but also considering a hotel room so I don't have to drive at 4am. Then acted like it would be a major inconvenience for him to come cheer me on when he doesn't really want to go in the first place. And I just don't have any friends that I could bring instead and I don't want to go by myself which makes me sound incredibly needy, but I know I will be nervous enough on race day without the added whoa is me mentality. So, I'll probably do the women's sprint. My only reservation with that is it is $115 and I have been training for a longer distance. The next weekend I am doing a Ragnar overnight relay race (for $105 plus hotel and gas). So we begin on Friday morning and end on Saturday. I will be running 4 legs with 11 other runners over the course of about 200 miles. My legs are about 4 miles a piece. So that weekend is out for a tri too. Now, if I do the sprint on the 12th and it goes well, I can do Dare to Tri on August 25th for another $90. While continuing to train between these other races. I think that will be my plan and then I can be done.. well unless I really get hooked :)
