Triathlon today!

It's finally happening. I've been talking about doing a Tri for 10 years. I'm starting out small with the "sprint triathlon". For those as ignorant as I was a few months ago, a sprint Tri is:

- 750m swim
- 20k bike
- 5k run

If I had to guess: The swim will be easy. The transition to the bike will be annoying and clunky. The bike will be challenging but ok, fumble through another transition and try to survive the run, the most challenging part.

In my estimation based on times from last year, I will be among the top finishers for the swim. Therefore I will spend the next hour of my life getting passed by great bikers and runners. That short little 3.1 mile run will just demolish me, it's tough enough for me to run 3.1 miles without anything ahead of it. This is gonna be brutal. Somehow I'm still looking forward to it!
