Although I've been granted to the freedom again to run, I've been hesitant to sign up for any races. (Especially given the fact that my last x-rays were still only 2 weeks ago)....When I do come back, I want to do well. Who wouldn't?
BUT I think I let my impatience get the best of me because I've officially signed up for my first tri august 9th. I've have been patient 5 months, isn't that long enough? I was waiting to get one of my spinning classes covered and when I did, I knew it was a sign giving me the go ahead.
Here I come Baierl Triathlon! It's actually quite perfect: It is a sprint distance tri with: a 700m pool swim, 13 mile bike, and 5k trail run. I'm loving the trail run :) The impact on the run is still my biggest concern for my pieced together pelvis.
Super Stoked! I actually screamed when I hit the "submit button" on the online registration. Although I'm not in the best of shape yet, I'm going in with the attitude that I'm doing it to have a good time regardless of how well I do. Isn't that what racing is supposed to be about anyway?
That attitude might change on race day but I will keep telling myself that for now.
But yes it is official: heidi is back to racing :)
