Pre-race Jitters? Well....maybe...

I don't know if I what I have right now could be considered jitters, but I got something going on. I can honestly say I am not sure how I am going to do this weekend. And there you have it, I have no idea! I came in fourth in my age group last year, but it was the inaugural year so I am thinking that there will be a lot more people competing this year. So who really knows?

This is my first tri since July of last year. Last year due to the wedding I got everything in early in the season, so it has been a while. I think I should do ok, but I am not going to bet the farm on this one. I have been doing well on all of my training and my knee seems to be happy. So as long as I can overcome open water panic and the off road running I think I should be ok.

In terms of gear, I am all set and ready for this one. Just got new tires on my bike, a tune up and some new aero bars. My racing kit arrived last week and thankfully it fits. So now all I need is for it to be 5am on Sunday morning so I can head to the race and get it over with. It will be the first race in a year that I am going to solo. Nick will be on his way to a business trip so it will just be me, myself and I. That in itself will be it's own obstacle, but I think I should be A-OK!

Anyone else racing this weekend?

Anyone racing the Red Bank Tri?
