It’s been over 10 years since I’ve had that entire feeling throughout my body of nervousness.
The feeling is very similar to my college days when we were at a regatta and would wake up only to have to wait 8 hours to race. At least in those days, i knew what to expect- a 2000 meter race was something I knew. Knew what to expect; when to expect the pain and the tough parts. Knew how to get through it. Today? A swim, bike, and run… NO clue. Oh well!
Thankfully, today’s tri starts in a little more than an hour so I don’t need to deal with it for long.
