I totally screwed up and missed the registration deadline for the Danskin triathlon. Nice. I have been beating myself up since I discovered this yesterday. I really wanted to kick off this new tri-adventure with that race. It is totally girl power. The motto is "the woman that starts the race is not the same woman that finishes the race." My friend Dawn was going to do it with me- her 1st. It was such a powerful experience for me in 2003. I did it with my sister. I was not prepared for it. I kicked butt in the swim. I threw up during the bike ride. I walked most of the run. It sucked. I still loved it. It was such a beginner friendly- most of us are just doing our own thing- only a few people actually want to win- a lot of us just proud to finish- type of event. I am seriously bummed.
Time to move on. I am going to sign up for the Wildbear in the next week: www.tri-maine.com. Really. It is in August. Then I am going to either do another in central ME in Sept, or maybe, if Dawn wants to, do the Danskin in NJ in Sept. Maybe I will see what's happening in CT, too. Save some money on lodging and stay with my family.
Gotta move on. While I am wallowing can I just say: it's raining AGAIN.
