Getting the first tri jitters

Okay I know I said my training was going great in my last post, but I am starting to get nervous about it all. It is unchartered territory for me and I am thrilled and frightened all at the same time. Of course I am most concerned about the swimming portion. I know I can complete that short distance, but I have never been in the water with that many people at the same time. I have never raced on my bike either,well not since I was ten years old :)

I am slowly but surely recovering from this freakin' divorce crap. I bought a new car, a Jeep Grand Cherokee Lauredo. It is really nice. I'll post some pics as soon as I get my camera battery recharger back from my classroom which I haven't stepped into since the last day of school.

My baby turned eight years old yesterday. We had a great day. Both of his big brothers had sleepovers of their own, so we were on our own. First, he played in the All-Star game for baseball, then we went out to dinner to Friendly's, and finally we had a slumber party in my room. He and I cuddled up to watch the Red Sox kick some butt. It was probably one of my top ten best days ever in my life.

Your first tri, eh? You'll do fantastic! Glad you had a great birthday for your son, and that things are moving forwards for you.

You'll be great. Remain calm. :)

I'm in awe of anyone that has or will be participating in a tri. I had thoughts of training for one but quickly changed my mind because of the swimming. I can barely swim in a pool!
I'm sure you'll do great.
