Tomorrow is my last race of the season, Atlantic Coast Triathlon - and the first race for me on the east coast. I'm not going to lie, I'm not a fan of the Atlantic Ocean. The gulf is no biggie - maybe you'll see some fish, some rays and a few jelly fish, but nothing huge. But the Atlantic, you can get bumped by strange objects in the murky water. Thankfully, I'm in the 3rd wave, so hopefully I'll just get bumped by random people!
The princess is ready to go
The girls are ready for the bike party
So I'm lounging in this huge hotel room (thanks Hilton for the gold card upgrade!) Getting my normal pre race nerves. Did I train enough? Do I have all of my nutrition? Water bottles in the freezer? Gear bag packed? You know, the normal jitters. But to be honest - I know I've slacked in my swimming the past few months, so I'm not looking at a stellar swim (unless I get bumped by random sea life). But the bike course is fast and flat and the run course is flat and shady. Did I mention that it's not going to be hot and humid either? So hopefully I'll fair with a good time!
For those of you doing Ironman Florida - per my gulf swim yesterday - all of the jelly fish are gone. For now :) I'll try my best to keep them way for the next three weeks!!
