Well, it's here! Musselman weekend, the weekend I would have been completing my second half-Ironman. I decided a few weeks ago not to race it, because I've got other goals that require 100% focus. If I'm being honest, even in the last few weeks I had thoughts about racing it again though. I know that I would be capable of completing it again this year, but I respect myself enough not to do it. I'm not trained at the level for it right now, I'd be frustrated not beating last years time, I could potentially get hurt...and this list could go on.
Guess what though, I'm going anyways.
I will be in Geneva this weekend, I will be at Musselman and I will be in that water come race morning.
|I won't be dressed like this though...|
After that, I'll be cheering on athletes and supporting friends in anyway that I can. I'm excited to get to finally meet up with Michelle, Mike & Rhoda as it is something we have talked about for a while now! Mike is racing MM as his first half-iron and I know he is going to do great, I'll get to hang with the girls while he works his butt off!
This weekend last year I completed my first 70.3 triathlon. It was a great race, there were lots of funny moments, and in general I was incredibly happy with my accomplishment. Are there going to be some emotions this weekend for MANY reasons...you bet your ass there will.

Have you ever DNS'd a race (not because of injury)?
Anyone else get motivated from volunteering/cheering at races?
Plans this weekend?
