Ever since I started doing the group bike rides, I have had the overwhelming desire to get back into triathlons. I have really had to hold myself back from registering for the 70.3 in Augusta. I have a bad habit of loading up my plate with too much and not enjoying the experience because I am too busy jetting from one activity to the next. I have spent much time perusing trifind.com in search of a race. The 70.3 Pigman in Iowa caught my eye, Augusta is insanely close to home... It is all so tempting but I have a couple of big races already on the calendar for later this year and am not sure I should shoehorn another race in the mix.
Several ladies from my tri group are doing their first tri in two weeks. It is a sprint and one I have done before. I was on the fence about registering as summer tennis starts that weekend (refer to previous mention of overloaded plates). Late yesterday, I received an email from the race organizers promoting the race. It was fate. It was as if they knew. It was... Ok, they really just had my name on file from 2 years ago and want to fill up the race, whatever. I signed up. Now to see if my BFF Hal Higdon has a 2 week triathlon plan.
