It went well - but, I'd be lying if I didn't say I sit here a little nervously about what lies ahead tomorrow. I just keep reminding myself that it's not going to be easy, but that it's also not supposed to be easy. There's nothing to do now but put on my game face and get it done.

On to the race. The most important thing to me was that I finally got my goggle problem solved. It cost me $30 for a pair of goggles that don't fog, but it was totally worth it. I was able to swim without having to stop and de-fog my goggles and it's amazing how much better you can swim when your momentum doesn't keep getting interrupted.
500m swim/8:29 (1:42/100m) - I think the swim was a little short. While I felt I had a much stronger swim than last week, I doubt it was an almost 3 min faster effort. If not, then perhaps my new goggles had magical powers.
17.6 mile bike/1:00:17/17.6 mph - hills and wind. I'm in for a treat tomorrow.
3.1 mile run/21:34 /6:58 pace - The run was pretty flat, just hot.
Overall: 1:34:12 / 4th female/ 1st age group
|Age group award - hard to see but it's Yosemite Sam!|
Here we go. See you on the flip side.
