The Season Begins

My first race of the season is here and I'm not sure what to think...

I've been training since the Monday after Thanksgiving with the ultimate goal being completion of Ironman Lake Placid. The race this weekend is a sprint down in South Beach Miami. I'm not concerned with the distance, my conditioning or anything like that, it's just the first race jitters...after a long off-season there is always that thread of doubt: do I remember how to get a good start, will I screw up transition, will my body respond, and on...

Also, there is a great deal of excitement and anticipation...I've been training a lot and have noticed some good gains in what I experienced last year, so I'm ready to try it out and take a little test.

I'm off to Miami on Friday and will report how it goes...
